This piece is very interesting in that it provides background progression with foreground instability. Frahm's playing of the electric piano was very unpredictable, while the background build suspense for what was to come next, and Frahm did an excellent job of blending it all together for a great crescendo.
I agree with Brian's observation of foreground instability. The unpredictable nature of the electric piano brought it to the foreground. However, I'd say the background was used more to give the piece drive and a sense of direction.
