When Nils Frahm kicked off his world tour at Funkhaus Berlin in January 2018 to bring his highly acclaimed album All Melody to the stage, an ambitious journey was just to begin: Over the next two years, he played more than 180 sold-out performances, including the Sydney Opera House, LA’s Disney Hall, the Barbican in London, and Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie. Yet the stunning setting of Funkhaus Berlin, renowned for its vintage grandeur and outstanding acoustics, and also home to Nils’ studio where All Melody was recorded, had occupied a unique place in the artist’s heart.
In December 2018, Nils eventually returned to Funkhaus Berlin to host another set of four shows. His friend and film director Benoit Toulemonde – a collaborator since 2011 – captured the concerts on film, only using handheld cameras, and employing techniques he had mastered for the concert series Soirée de Poche which featured some of the world’s most popular artists.
Tripping with Nils Frahm is produced by LEITER in association with Plan B. The film is now showing on the global streaming service MUBI. The live album of the same name is out on Erased Tapes.
