Ben Frost’s music is not just heard; it’s felt. Influenced by classical minimalism as well as punk rock and metal, he creates monolithic sounds that command attention through their visceral intensity. Keenly aware of listeners’ thresholds, Frost exploits every extreme of pitch and volume as he pushes the sound of electric guitars, drums, and laptops out from a wall of speakers and amps. As the music unfolds, overlapping layers and elongated structural forms emerge from within the encompassing sonic space.
Ben Frost, along with Gregory Fox, Shahzad Ismaily, and Daniel Rejmer, was in residence in EMPAC's Studio 1 recording material for his 2014 album A U R O R A.
