Encircled and deep in his complex myriad of controls and keys, Frahm cuts a lonely figure at this immense former GDR recording hall in east Berlin.

Nils Frahm is just some guy on a stage fiddling with knobs, tinkering with futuristic glass harmonicas, and clanging away at keys with a penchant for building waves of contemplative sounds. So you can soundtrack whatever stressful thoughts you may have brought with you on a Thursday night.

Chill-out? Ambient? Neo-classical? A decade in to Nils Frahm's professional career, the 37-year-old Berliner's music was as defiant of genre as ever, so best to just surrender to those enveloping chords and warm beats.

These days, Frahm can fill our biggest concert halls (several times over) in each city he visits. But if we were a little late coming to the Frahm party, weve made up for it, inviting him back to Melbourne twice within the past 14 months.

Kicking off a beautifully sunny August bank holiday weekend, German composer Nils Frahm returned to London to perform at The Hydra’s bank holiday series at Printworks. We went to see the magician at work on August 23rd.
