Ben Frost’s interests are as vast as his output is, creating music for dance companies and films, and collaborating with visual artists and poets. Frost’s music is influenced by classical minimalism as well as by punk rock and metal, his throbbing guitar-based textures emerge from nothing and slowly coalesce into a huge, piercing sound: grand and physical. Just how far he’s willing to go? 2014’s A U R O R A was written while traveling through the war-torn, Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.
This performance is a collaboration with Marcel Weber also known as MFO, who created a magnificent stage design and takes care of the live visuals.
