Ben Frost

AU / Mute Records / Live A/V

Born in 1980 in Melbourne (Australia), Ben Frost relocated to Reykjavík (Iceland) in 2005 and working together with close friends Valgeir Sigurðsson and Nico Muhly, formed the Bedroom Community record label/collective.

His albums fuse intensely structured sound art with militant post-classical electronic music, shape-shifting physical power with immersive melody, concentrated minimalism with rupturing dark metal. After collaborating with artists such as Brian Eno, Tim Hecker and Swans, his latest solo album ‘The Centre Cannot Hold” offers a defiant new world of fiercely synthetic shapes and galactic interference.

In recent years he has put his hybrid electronics at the service of original productions, scoring the soundtrack of the British television series “Fortitude” and the music for the opera “The Wasp Factory“.
