the concluding part of his profound encores series takes a turn for the electronic, charting a clear journey through time across the trilogy.
Whilst ‘Encores 1’ focused on an acoustic pallet of sounds with solo piano and harmonium at the core, and ‘Encores 2’ explored more ambient landscapes, ‘Encores 3’ sees Nils expand on the percussive and electronic elements in his work. This is a testament to Nils’ exceptional ability to craft his art on stage. ‘Artificially Intelligent’ which showcases his ‘mad professor’ organ, and ‘All Armed’ which has been a live favourite for some time, appearing on set lists since 2015, are now available to hear on record for the very first time. The final track of ‘Encores 3’, as well as the whole series, ‘Amirador’, perhaps aptly nods to the Spanish word for ‘lookout’ and hints at what’s to come.
