From Berlin To Brooklyn: Nils Frahm & Greg Haines in NY

Last Sunday marked the last day in the US tour for Berlin Pianist & composer Nils Frahm. Dumbo, Brooklyn was his last stop where he played a set of his solo piano works accompanied by Greg Haines, the English composer, in Galapagos art space.

This was the first US tour for the two composers after appearing in numerous performances across  Europe. Frahm’s music is minimalist, emotional and evocative while Haines’ is a blend of modern classical and ambient.

The evening started with New York based composer Kyle Bobby Dunn playing a set of his solo guitar ambient work accompanied by visual artworks.

The following pictures were taken during Dunn’s performance:

And the last two pieces he played may be watched on YouTube:
