German musician, composer, and record producer Nils Frahm will drop a live album accompanied by a concert film next month. The film and album at the heralded venue Funkhaus Berlin. Footage of the performance was captured on film via handheld cameras by longtime collaborator and director Benoit Toulemonde throughout a series of concerts in December 2018.
In a press statement, Frahm explained:
“It was about time to document my concerts in picture and sound, trying to freeze a moment of this period where my team and I were nomads, using any method of travel to play yet another show the next day. Maybe tonight is the night where everything works out perfectly and things fall into place? Normally things go wrong with concerts, but by combining our favourite moments of four performances, we were able to achieve what I was trying to do in these two years of touring: getting it right! When you hear the applause on the end of the film you should know that I was smiling happily, being a tad proud and feeling blessed to share these moments with you.”
You can pre-order the album here and/or watch the film premier December 3rd via MUBI.
