Each carefully considered vignette on Felt carries tiny melodic fragments and taken together they reaffirm Frahm’s special ability to infuse his piano solos with considerable poignancy and emotional weight.

Felt is a 2011 album by German composer Nils Frahm. It was released on 7 October 2011 on Erased Tapes records. The name of the record refers to Nils placing felt on the strings of his piano, initially to dampen the sound to enable nighttime playing and later as he liked the sound it produced. The album was also recorded with the microphones deep within the piano which was seen to provide a more intimate sound.

More Berlin-based pianist Nils Frahm is already a firebrand in the modern classical world. As announced by Drowned In Sound, he finally returns on October 10th 2011 with the successor to his highly acclaimed solo piano works 'Wintermusik' and 'The Bells'. Nils Frahm invites you to put on your headphones and dive into a world of microscopic and delicate sounds.

Felt" was used by Nils to dampen his piano for nighttime playing in respect for his neighbours. But it turned out that Nils fell in love with the quietness and special beauty of this piano sound. Recorded and mixed by me at "Durton Studio" Mastered at "ET Mastering" Lacquer cut & re-digitisation at "D+M". First of all, I don’t think I’ve heard an album from Nils Frahm that didn’t impress me. Ever since I heard The Bells (Kning Disk, 2009) and Wintermusik (Sonic Pieces, 2009), I’ve hungrily consumed everything by this Berlin based modern classical composer. Both of the above, as well as Unter Über release, and now Felt have been picked up by the wonderful Erased Tapes Records, home to Ólafur Arnalds, Peter Broderick and A Winged Victory For The Sullen.

Nils Frahm had an early introduction to music, learning the piano throughout his childhood. It was through this that Nils began to immerse himself in the styles of classical pianists from previous generations as well as the music of contemporary composers, before forging his own musical path through composition. Today Nils Frahm continues to work as an accomplished composer, producer and celebrated performer from his Berlin-based studio at the renowned Funkhaus. Following on from his first solo piano works Wintermusik and The Bells in 2009, and 2010’s 7fingers in collaboration with cellist Anne Müller, 2011 saw his break-through album Felt on Erased Tapes. Created by placing felt on the hammers of the piano, the record defines Frahm’s signature sound which was a further development of the two-track experiment Unter/Über.

German-born musician and composer Nils Frahm, on the other hand, would make the ideal neighbour. It was in part to make sure he didn’t disturb the nocturnal rest of those around him that Frahm developed the calm intimacy of new album, Felt, by muting his piano. If I want to play piano during the quiet of the night, the only respectful way is by layering thick felt in front of the strings and using very gentle fingers
