Nils Frahm - Screws Reworked (2xLP)

$24.99

Nils Frahm’s 2012 album ‘Screws’ gets reissued with bonus disc feat. 9 remixes entitled ‘Screws Reworked’.

Berlin-based pianist Nils Frahm presents a 30 minute mini-album to his fans. Nils experienced an unfortunate accident, which saw him fall from his bunk bed located directly above his studio, which resulted in a broken thumb. But through inspiration from his fans and despite the four screws that had just been surgically placed inside his thumb, he started recording with nine fingers, which later resulted in nine intimate piano recordings. In his own words: "Even though my doctor told me not to touch a piano for a while, I just couldn't resist. I started playing a silent song with 5 fingers on my right and the remaining 4 on my left hand. I set up one microphone and recorded another tune every other night before falling asleep. The day I got rid of my cast I had recorded nine little songs. They have helped me feel less annoyed about my accident and reminded me that I can only achieve something good, when I make the most of what I've got." Nils Frahm has become known for his unconventional approach to an age-old instrument as well as his collaborations with contemporaries such as Ólafur Arnalds, Peter Broderick (as Oliveray) and Efterklang.
