Oliveray is a project from pianist Nils Frahm and multi-instrumentalist Peter Broderick. Oliveray was born in their shared home city of Berlin and Wonders is a collection of eight delicate pieces. Frahm and Broderick have an extensive history of working and touring together. An accomplished composer and producer, Frahm founded Durton Studio in Berlin in 2008, working with Broderick and Dustin O' Halloran, amongst other fellow musicians. As curator of Swedish label Kning Disk's Piano Series, Broderick co-produced and collaborated on Frahm's full-length The Bells (ERATP 021CD) in 2009. On Oliverary, Broderick writes, "It all started when I was asked to create a cover version for my great friends Efterklang. I asked Nils if he'd like to work with me on the project. So one day we got together in his studio and ran through the song ('Harmonics') a couple times and then laid it down to tape in the most relaxed way possible -- me playing the guitar and singing and him on the piano... We were both really happy and inspired with how easy and fun this process was. We thought you could hear and feel that relaxed atmosphere in the song. So when our Japanese friends Cote Labo asked us to prepare some kind of release for our Japan tour, me and Nils set aside a couple days to record some music in a similar manner. Without much preconception we just set up the mics and started recording, with an aim to create a short album of half instrumentals, half vocal-based songs. We ran through a few fresh musical ideas that each of us had, improvising along with each other, sometimes just improvising entirely. And before we knew it we had a nice little collection of eight intimate pieces of music." Wonders is presented on a limited edition vinyl pressing that includes an album download code.
