Gorgeous beginning, finalizing peaks – Prayer’s (Nicki Fehr) single ‘Bubble Trouble’ from his debut album ‘Violet’, glistens like the early morning shimmer off of that glowing sun through the darkness of the forest. An engaging synthesis of musical songs, ‘Bubble Trouble’ delivers in beauty and mystery.
Nick cites the otherworldly space and serenity such music creates along with its pure intention as a major influence. Not wanting to imitate or appropriate these sacred traditions, Fehr studied their common denominators and atmospheres while sticking to his own musical vocabulary.
While always rooted in the realm of music, Berlin-based artist Nicki Fehr sees his practice as a holistic endeavor. A special interest in the nature of consciousness, the subversive potential of pop culture, and spirituality in the digital age informs his oftentimes surreal and romantic practice.
It’s an inspirational rationale, dripping in prog-synth of notions, tickling your every move, with dapper bass and instrumental excises.
It says all of the things that needs to be said.
With minimal hints. And with just a gaze.

After two sold out shows, FLAGS is being shown one last time in Frankfurt tonight! 🎊 Apart from the inspirations mentioned in my previous post, I was greatly inspired by Steve Reich and John Cage’s work while composing the score for this piece. Being more of a melody-person, I found it a delightful challenge to create repetitive, polyrhythmic patterns and embrace chance as a compositional tool. 3 FEB 2020 Frankfurt, DE @mousonturm 7-8 FEB 2020 Cologne, DE @tanzfaktur 20-21 MAR 2020 Dresden, DE @hellerau_ 📷 Jörg Baumann @haptichide @jmfiebelkorn @cin_goplastic @shirelynot @isabellaparigi_ @mariakobzeva Leonard Engels @tom_diener @michaelakraft Ingrida Gerbutaviciute
