Nils Frahm

All Melody

Stage Times

The Berlin-based pianist and composer makes a much-anticipated return to the live stage following 2017’s hiatus, playing brand new material in an intimate set-up.

Nils Frahm is one of the most talked-about musicians of his generation, at the vanguard of a new wave of composers and performers forging new paths through experimenting with instrumentation and technology. Blending Classical composition with elements of Electronica, his music takes influence as much from the percussive rhythms of the Techno of his native Berlin as Ambient music, Post-Rock and Minimalism.

In 2016 he hosted and curated Possibly Colliding here – a triumphant marathon weekend which also featured Penguin Café, Anna von Hausswolff and many more – and his mesmerising live shows have been acclaimed worldwide.  

Produced by the Barbican in association with Bird on the Wire
