OLAFUR ARNALDS & NILS FRAHM

TRANCE FRENDZ

ERASED TAPES


Format: LP
Cata No: ERATP081LP
Barcode: 4050486110539
Having been available exclusively as the second disc to
2015's 'Collaborative Works', Ólafur Arnalds and Nils
Frahm's improvised audio recordings 'Trance Frendz',
taken from their 45-minute studio film of the same
name, have been given their own vinyl release – out
March 4th, 2016.
Prior to a string of collaborative Erased Tapes releases, which
include 2012's 'Stare' 10” and last year’s 'Life Story Love and
Glory' 7” and 'Loon' 12” – compiled on the 'Collaborative
Works' 2-CD set, Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm spent many
hours together in their studios across Berlin and Reykjavik.
Both have carved out genre-defying musical careers and
formed unique live shows, creating a fan base loyal to their
prolific output.
During a session at Durton Studio in Berlin last summer, Nils
and Ólafur invited Alexander Schneider and his camera to
document it. The recording continued long after the first take,
stretching out into the next day until, eventually, several new
improvisations had been recorded in 8 hours with no overdubs
or edits. The unexpected nature in which these pieces had
been created was reminiscent of their first on-stage
improvisation many years ago. It became immediately clear
how special these songs were.
"At the end of the night we had all this music that sounded
unfamiliar even to us, loudly asking to be included in this
collection.”
Originally made available as a 45-minute film on their joint
website (www.arnaldsfrahm.com) last September, 'Trance
Frendz' will be available to own on vinyl from March 4th, 2016.
Press for their 'Collaborative Works':
'A particularly joyous wash of slinky percussion and juddering
layers' (8/10) – Clash
'An enchanting listen. The bar for a Lads' Night In has just
been raised a few notches' (7/10) – Drowned In Sound
‘This is music for slowing down the pace of modern life... An
immersive listening experience is guaranteed, while we must
hope Frahm and Arnalds go on ‘holiday’ together more in
future, and don’t forget to take their musical instruments.’
★★★★ – MusicOMH
'A collection of gorgeously intimate piano compositions and
eye-opening synth pieces, each never aggressive but always
powerfully poignant' (8/10) – Under The Radar
'What Collaborative Works offers is something strange: a
shared world created by two mad geniuses. Long may
Arnalds and Frahm tinker' (8/10) – PopMatters
'Collaborative Works further proves just how natural a fit
Ólafur Arnalds and Nils Frahm are together' – Resident
Advisor
