Peter Broderick is set to release his new studio album 'Partners' on August 19th
Now, Peter takes that unpredictability one step further. For his latest album 'Partners', he experiments with chance, surrendering an entire song’s composition to the roll of dice.
“The inspiration really came when I decided to learn to play John Cage’s In A Landscape on the piano . . . I listened to a recording I had over and over again, five seconds or so at a time, picking out every single note. Then cross referencing what I’d learned with other versions of the piece as well as the original score. Beyond Cage’s music, his life and practice have interested me more and more, after having read about his love for foraging wild foods and using chance operations to compose music, in a sense taking his ‘self’ out of the music.”

Rival Consoles returns with mini-LP 'Night Melody'
“I found myself in a silent home, with the days getting dark very early. I’ve never before in my life been affected by the lack of light so much. I just remember it always being night time. I would either make music into the night, go out drinking with friends, or go to parties and dance into the early hours, every day, week after week, month after month, until eventually the days became brighter again.”
'Lone' is the first glimpse from the release and is the result of constant adjustments to find a delicate balance of fragility and assurance.

Woodkid & Nils Frahm collaborate on score for JR's short film 'Ellis' with Robert De Niro
Woodkid & Nils Frahm's collaborative score for JR's short film ELLIS starring Robert De Niro is set for release on July 8th with all profits going to the Sea-Watch initiative.
For the first half of the twentieth century, Ellis Island stood as the gateway to America. For some twelve million people, it was their first encounter with the land they hoped to call home.
Directed by acclaimed French artist JR, ELLIS tells the story of one such migrant. Starring Robert De Niro, the film winds its way through the crumbling hallways of the abandoned Ellis Island hospital complex, now home to JR’s Unframed art installation. Entwined with the narrative is a score composed by Woodkid, performed and co-written by Nils Frahm. The delicate piano motifs of ‘Winter Morning I’ culminate in a crescendo of strings, while the harmonium swells on the B-side are the foundation for De Niro’s narration: an encomium for those who shaped modern America.
There’s perhaps never been a more fitting time for this story, with all the proceeds going to the Sea Watch initiative, a non-profit charity dedicated to the protection and rescue of civilian refugees.
"The music fell in our laps and melted with the images. The film has stuck in my head ever since; it moved my heart and changed my soul" – Nils Frahm
