Classically trained German pianist Nils Frahm merges pensive sonatas with percolating electronics into a minimalist soundtrack for the modern age. Armed with banks of vintage synths, effects machines, and multiple pianos, Frahm’s heavily wired stage plot recalls the early incarnation of electronic pioneers Tangerine Dream, though his aspirations feel deliberately less cosmic and more rooted in the melancholy of the industrialized world and the steadily thumping pulse of neon urban life.
