Nils Frahm 'Spaces' Tour & 'Says' Video

12.1  2014


After releasing his critically acclaimed new album 'Spaces' with an exclusive release concert in New York, Nils Frahm announces his European & North American tour with a brand new video.

The official music video for album track Says was created by visual artists Romain Assénat and Ana Silva. Romain previously submitted a 'typewriter symphony' for Nils's Screws Reworked online project.

'Listening to 'Says', we wanted to create a visual space fitting with the repeating form and the kind of echo present in this piece. We had the visual idea during a show of Nils in Germany, two days after, we've created a device for capturing this idea: a video-feedback with ink on glass captured in one take, in a very analogue way and without any post-production', he explains.
