Nils Frahm's music has its own distinctive place somewhere between electronic music and classical. A gifted pianist on the one hand—he was tutored by Nahum Brodski, whose own teacher was a protégé of Tchaikovsky—he's also captivated by electronics, developing a mastery of synths and drum machines. Anyone who's seen Frahm perform will know his musical gifts are complemented by a bubbling energy and playful streak that marks him as a unique live act.

Though he's been credited on more than a dozen albums stretching back to 2005, 2013 was something of a breakthrough year for Frahm. His Spaces album, released on UK label Erased Tapes, was widely acclaimed, and made it into RA's rundown of 2013's best LPs. Spaces showcased his exceptional skill on stage. The album was built from live recordings made over a two-year period. In 2014 he's been busy touring, with a second round of North American dates coming up in November.

Stopping by RA's London office with a Juno, Fender Rhodes, drum machine and tape delay, Frahm performed two brand new songs: "All Melody" and "#2."
