Five years after Spaces, German composer and musician Nils Frahm returned with a new album. All Melody is out now via Erased Tapes Records. Now he announced the release of Encores 2, out on January 25th 2019, the second in a series of EPs accompanying the release of the album. “Spells” is the first excerpt.
While Encores 1 focused on an acoustic pallet of sounds with just a solo piano and harmonium, Encores 2 explores a more ambient landscape from the All Melody sessions, the pinnacle of which is the astral 12 minute showpiece “Spells”. It was recorded through an amplified stone well Frahm found on Mallorca.
