Fans of the Berlin based Nils Frahm are by now familiar with his beguiling live shows where more often than not fellow touring artists are encouraged to join Frahm on stage – the likes of Rachel Grimes, Rob Lowe of Balmorhea as well as label colleagues Peter Broderick and Ólafur Arnalds have all obliged with fascinating results. It will come as no surprise then that Nils Frahm, an... accomplished composer and producer who signed to Erased Tapes in 2009, has extended his collaborative live musings to encompass the recording studio, working for the first time with noted cellist and fellow Berliner Anne Müller to produce 7fingers
With their first collective release Frahm and Müller have built a world where modern classical and electronica collide creating an ‘intoxicating and delicious’ collection of songs.
‘The combined talents of wunderkind pianist Frahm and Anne Müller here produce a subtle, seductive chamber music sporadically interleaved with electronic glitches’ **** – MOJO
Multi instrumentalist Nick Palmer started Directorsound in 1998 releasing his debut 'Redemptive Strikes' on Geographic in the UK and Felicity in Japan. Earlier recordings where then collated for 2005's 'Tales from the tightrope vol.1' for Japanese label Powershovel Audio and Dorset Paeans in the UK. After a series of low key CDR releases throughout the late noughties radio silence was broken in 2010 with the joint release of 7" single 'Before the March' and LP 'Two Years Today' on Swedish label Tona Serenad and Inpartmaint in Japan.
Live performances see Palmer employing a range of acoustic and home made instruments, often simultaneously to play out his pan-european, junkshop, circus folk stylings.
