Biography

Born in 1980 in Melbourne, Australia, Ben Frost relocated to Reykjavík Iceland in 2005. Working closely with friends Valgeir Sigurðsson and Nico Muhly, he formed the Bedroom Community record label/collective. His albums, including Steel Wound (2003), Theory of Machines (2007) and BY THE THROAT (2009), and A U R O R A (2014), fuse intensely structured sound art with militant post-classical electronic music, shape-shifting physical power with immersive melody, concentrated minimalism with fierce, rupturing metal.

In 2010, he was chosen by Brian Eno as part of the Rolex Mentor and Protegé program for a year of collaboration. Frost has worked as a producer on a number of studio albums, including Tim Hecker’s Ravedeath1972 and Virgins, SWANS’ The Seer, Colin Stetson’s New History Warfare, and on various Bedroom Community releases.

On the stage, Frost has produced scores for Choreographers including Wayne McGregor/Random Dance, Akram Khan, and german Director Falk Richter. In film, he composed the score for the Palme d ́Or nominated Sleeping Beauty by Julia Leigh, and Djúpið by Icelandic Director Baltasar Kormákur (with Daníel Bjarnason, for which the pair won the Icelandic film award for best score in 2013). 2013 also marked the premier of Frost’s first opera, based on Iain Bank´s infamous 1984 novel The Wasp Factory.

Ben is currently working on the second season of Simon Donald’s epic Fortitude and his score for Super Dark Times, directed by newcomer Kevin Phillips, alongside new music. These various collaborations and alliances underline Frost’s continuing fascination with finding ways of juxtaposing music, rhythm, technology, the body, performance, text, art, beauty, and violence, combining and coalescing the roles and procedures of various artistic disciplines in one place.
