Nils Frahm (born on September 1982 in Hamburg, Germany) is a multiple-group and solo musican as well as a producer with a very broad variety of talents. Taught piano by Nahum Brodski (a student of the last scholar of Tschaikowski), Nils Frahm mingled with classical co-noted and ECM-influenced soundworlds during the late eigthies.
During the 90s he began to form different band constellations to explore the fields of HipHop, Funk and Jazz. At the beginning of the new millenium he discovered the computer and the influential work of Steve Reich. Together with Frederic Gmeiner he formed the duo Übertonmensch and in 2002 produced their first concept album »Ultra«.
In his capacity as a solo artist, Nils kept investigating the horizons of analog music and instrumentation. All the sounds used in his work gain their warmth and organic expression from accoustic instruments and analog sound generators and alterizers from the 60’s and 70’s. Meditating over musical pattern structures, he produced his debut solo album »Streichelfisch« in the winter 2004 and released it on AtelierMusik in December 2005.
