Gestern war der Piano Day. Für die, die den Tag als solchen nicht kennen, kann ich euch gerne Nachhilfe geben. Der Piano Day ist kein üblicher Tag, wie andere Tage, die einer Sache gewidmet sind. Er wurde erst dieses Jahr von Nils Frahm ins Leben gerufen, um eben dieses Instrument zu würdigen. Was passiert da? Ein Nils Frahm verschenkt am Piano Day ein neues Album komplett für umme. Kann man hier laden. Oder man bestellt es eben auch Vinyl oder CD, geht auch, für die, die es klassisch mögen.

My album –solo– can be downloaded in any desired format and can be listened to for free. For those who like the real thing, there is a vinyl and all other kinds of round discs available (sorry, these are not for free). It would be appreciated if you get this thing on vinyl, simply because it’s very nice looking and sounding! Anyways, this is all part of a fundraising enterprise for a very special piano project. So please read on for a bit …

Es gibt noch einen weiteren Grund für den Piano Day 2015. Der Bau des Klavins M450, ein Instrument von epochaler Gestalt, welches um die 120.000 Euro kosten soll. Für den Bau wird Geld benötigt, was man durch den freiwilligen Kauf der Platte auch machen kann. Also einmal gratis downloaden, dann nochmal kaufen und schon habt ihr dem Nils damit geholfen.

If we meet our goal, piano builder David Klavins can fulfill his lifelong dream and build the Klavins M450.

Our friend David Klavins isn’t out for profit on this one. As he is only driven by hearing his invention himself, he simply wants materials and labor to be covered. I will donate all income generated with –solo– until the financial means are achieved. Building the Klavins M450 will take about two years and we are confident that we will organise a festival around this incredible invention on Piano Day 2017 here in Berlin.

My new record – solo – was recorded on the prototype of the instrument under discussion. Although being a slightly smaller version with 3.7 meters in height, the Klavins M370 is already tremendous and gigantic sounding. But listen for yourself and see if the sound is worth the effort. I have, of course, no doubt it is. If you also feel that the world is in need for an instrument like this, please feel free to donate by buying the record or by donating online. It is much appreciated and everyone who donates or signs up to the newsletter will receive infrequent updates on the building of this unique instrument. Now I have two years to organise a room to place it in and make it accessible to as many ears and hands as possible …
