Frieder Nagel’s eclectic style combines analog synthesis, modulated field recording, and classic instrumentation.
His melancholic pieces are performed by the Bavarian Chamber Orchestra, the ensemble Kontraste, the Nuremberg Symphonics, or the Essen Philharmonics.
He deliverd a remix of La boum Fatale’s “Walls” for the Berlin collective Sinnbus, and the French label Infiné Music released his club track “Lythe”.
In spring 2016 Nagel’s symphony Ostinato was premiered with Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin.
Highly praised by critics and celebrated by the audience “Ostinato” was performed on three sold-out nights at Radialsystem Berlin and published via Boiler Room.
In this unique project he worked on integrating electronic live sets and classic synthesizers within the orchestra,
alongside internationally acclaimed producer David August and his “poéme symphonique”.
Besides his first tour—which ties on the music and sound design of the video installation RUE
produced in collaboration with Tobias Szabo in New Zealand—Frieder Nagel is now planning a festival of classical music
and electronic subculture at the center for contemporary art Z-Bau in his hometown Nuremberg.
