Nils Frahm executes beautifully moving piano based compositions with marked ease, though the live experience is somewhat informed by the environment. This reissued collection of tracks presents the perceived value Frahm bestows upon these, celebrating his collaboration with chance, space and philosophies of the present.

8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 12 November 2013

Here’s something a bit different from everyone’s favourite modern minimalist pianist Nils Frahm, following mounting critical adoration for his most recent couple of albums. However Frahm felt that none of the existing recordings were really representative of his live performances, so he’s spent the last couple of years recording his performances on everything from cassettes to reel to reel recorders and more sophisticated multi-tracking devices, “to create an album out of live recordings...inspired by everyone who asked which of my records best reflects the performance”.

Because of the variety of recording devices and locations, Frahm also mentions in his sleeve notes that he sees this release “more as a field recording project than a live record”. To the untrained ear, however, it does sound an awful lot like a live record. There are 11 tracks on here, six of which are unreleased, the remainder being culled from previous records or medleys of multiple previously recorded pieces. There’s a real stillness and intensity of focus to many of these tracks, full of hypnotic repeated patterns and pedal notes, gentle tinklings and heartstring-tugging spaces between notes. It’s mind-massagingly beautiful stuff, as you’d expect, and it’s interesting to hear how the live versions vary from their recorded counterparts.
