Martin recently set up Mearl , a project to facilitate collaborating with other artists & composers, as well as a platform for developing his own material. Peaky Blinders was the first soundtrack written under this name, scored with a band of musicians from Radiohead’s new Laundry Studios in London Fields. Two recent feature films were also written under this title.

On the 28th of July 2015 Nils Frahm and Ólafur Arnalds invited Alexander Schneider and his camera to document an improvised session at Nils’ studio in Berlin. The result was several new pieces written and recorded in 8 hours with no overdubs and no edits. You can watch the film here .

“Without exception, there would always be some phones beeping,” Arnalds continues. “So we made field recordings and put it all together in Pro Tools. When you hear creaking or voices, those are the natural sounds from the piano. And there are voices recorded from the pubs. Sometimes you’re hearing Alice’s voice because she tends to hum along to the songs involuntarily. I really like that. It’s a part of the idea to really capture the atmosphere in the room, not to get rid of these extra involuntary sounds but to include them.”
