Here our last Music For Breakfast of 2012! This time totally dedicated to one of our discoveries of the year: Nils Frahm (born 1982) a German musician and composer based in Berlin. He has released solo material under his own name and also with several notable performers such as Anne Müller, Ólafur Arnalds and F.S. Blumm.
Back in September he released “Screws”. This free release is the result of an unfortunate accident which left the musician with a broken thumb. Understandably, breaking any finger is really bad news for a pianist but Nils managed to see this experience in the most positive light he could and so he began to play his piano again with only nine fingers.
By the time he had to have his cast removed he had recorded nine tracks, which kicking off our playlist, and then close with a selection by Nils himself with the title: “Music For The End Of The World!”, including marelene dietrich, nina simone, enrico caruso, julianna barwick and many, many more!
