Sheets is a deluxe artefact containing the sheet music to ten of Nils Frahm?s piano works, a selection of photographs from award-winning visual artist, Stuart Bailes, illustrated instructions on how to modify your piano to achieve Nils? signature ?Felt? sound, and a digital pass to download audio copies of the titles featured in the book.
Stuart Bailes creates nocturnal landscapes using studio lights and imposed stage-like settings. Sheets contains over a dozen allusive images from the artist who has also worked as lighting director for Nils?s live performances.
Instructions to modify your piano:
Sheets includes illustrated instructions for assembling 3 types of damper: the Quick Fix, the Budget, and the Deluxe. Winsome diagrams from Berlin-based artist Paul Praetzel decorate the directions.
Design & Construction:
The work of melding together the elements of Sheets to produce a visually elegant, beautifully constructed, and tactually pleasurable whole was accomplished by Torsten Posselt and the good people at Berlin digital craft studio FELD.
