Nils Frahm is back with the third and final instalment of his 'Encores' series.
Whilst 'Encores 1' focused on an acoustic pallet of sounds with solo piano and harmonium at the core, and 'Encores 2' explored more ambient landscapes, now 'Encores 3' sees Nils expand on the percussive and electronic elements in his work.
“The idea behind 'All Encores' is one we had from before 'All Melody'; to separate releases each with their own distinct musical style and theme, perhaps even as a triple album. But 'All Melody' became larger than itself and took over any initial concepts. I think the idea of 'All Encores' is like musical islands that compliment 'All Melody'.”
Moulded during 'All Melody' but refined by his live performances, the 'All Encores' set is testament to Nils’ exceptional ability to craft his art on stage. 'Artificially Intelligent' showcases his ‘mad professor’ organ, and 'All Armed' which has been a live favourite for some time, appearing on set lists since 2015, are now available to hear on record for the very first time. The final track of Encores 3, as well as the whole series, 'Amirador', perhaps aptly nods to the Spanish word for ‘lookout’ and hints at what’s to come.
Frahm has been touring extensively following the release of All Melody, bringing his spectacular live show all around the world with sold out performances including the Hammersmith Apollo in London, L.A.’s Disney Hall, Brooklyn Steel, Le Trianon in Paris and Funkhaus in Berlin.
The three EPs will be available as one full length release titled 'All Encores' featuring 80 minutes of music on 18 October, to follow his masterful 2018 album All Melody.
