A TAV Curator's Pick.

“In the process of completion, any album not only reveals what it has become but, maybe more importantly, what it hasn’t become. All Melody was imagined to be so many things over time and it has been a whole lot, but never exactly what I planned it to be. I wanted to hear beautiful drums, drums I’ve never seen or heard before, accompanied by human voices, girls, and boys. They would sing a song from this very world and it would sound like it was from a different space. I heard a synthesiser which sounds like a harmonium playing the All Melody, melting together with a line of a harmonium sounding like a synthesiser. My pipe organ would turn into a drum machine, while my drum machine would sound like an orchestra of breathy flutes. I would turn my piano into my very voice, and any voice into a ringing string. The music I hear inside me will never end up on a record, as it seems I can only play it for myself. This record includes what I think sticks out and describes my recent musical discoveries in the best possible way I could imagine.” – NilsFrahm

“Rather than bringing a combination of instruments and styles together, as so many albums do now, All Melody seems to starts them all over again, at different moments but in sequence. The result is this extraordinary cross between hypnotic dance and classical music which sounds like neither…

… Over the course of the album the melodies continue to phase in and out every few bars, they continuously and subtly evolve, without leaving time for boredom or distraction before the next instrument is introduced, the next melody is adapted. It is this ongoing sense of evolution, constant change which allow Frahm to introduce a wide array of instruments without ever over cluttering the compositions.” – DrownedinSound
