“The Bells is an album by German pianist and composer Nils Frahm which was first released in 2009 on the Swedish Kning Disk label them more broadly released in 2010 on the Erased Tapes label. It was recorded over 2 days in the Grunewald Church in Berlin.” - Wiki

“The Bells is a record that showcases the incredible talents of Nils Frahm. True – it is permeated by a sense of familiarity but that does little to diminish his achievements. From an outsider looking in, and that is very much how this is, The Bells is an excellent foothold into the baffling world of neo-classical composers. This is well worth a shot.” - Drowned in Sound

 

 

About Nils Frahm:

“Nils Frahm had an early introduction to music. During his childhood he was taught to play piano. It was through this that Nils began to immerse himself in the styles of the classical pianists before him as well as contemporary composers.

Today Nils Frahm works as an accomplished composer and producer from his Berlin-based Durton Studio. His unconventional approach to an age-old instrument, played contemplatively and intimately, has won him many fans around the world. For a musician this early in his career, Frahm displays an incredibly developed sense of control and restraint in his work, catching the ear of many fans.

As the recognition continues to grow for his previous solo piano works 'Wintermusik' (2009) and ‘The Bells’ (2009), 2011 saw the release of his critically acclaimed record 'Felt' on Erased Tapes Records. The album was followed by the solo synthesiser EP 'Juno' and 'Screws' (2012) – a birthday gift to his fans he recorded while recovering from a thumb injury. Nils released his follow up to Juno titled 'Juno Reworked' (2013) with guest reworks by Luke Abbott and Clark.

Nils returned with his new album 'Spaces' in 2013 to much critical acclaim, expressing his love for experimentation and answering the call from his fans for a record that truly reflects what they have witnessed during his concerts. Nils Frahm also released his first music book, entitled 'Sheets Eins' in this year.

In 2015 Nils announced Piano Day. An official body created by Nils and his closest friends to celebrate the piano and to house various and exciting, piano-related projects. The first project revealed by the Piano Day team is the building of what will be world’s tallest piano: the Klavins 450.” – Erased Tapes Records
