Theory of Machines
This is Frost's first release for the Icelandic Bedroom Community Label. At 26 he has already released such critically-lauded works as 2003's guitar exploration LP, Steel Wound on the Room40 Label, which Pitchfork Media USA marked as "An exemplary ambient experience", and the harrowing, self-titled 2005 opus School of Emotional Engineering, which Db Magazine called "... An atmospheric masterpiece". in addition to his solo work, Frost produces his work internationally in various forms including gallery-based installations, scores commissioned for film, dance and multimedia productions (for the likes of the Icelandic Dance Company and as part of A/V installation collective Cicada) and collaborative works, remixes and productions for artists such as Björk, Steintryggur, Neotropic, Lawrence English, Stars Like Fleas and Ai Yamamoto. A resident of Iceland, Ben Frost operates primarily in Greenhouse Studios in Reykjavík under the wing of producer and founder of the Bedroom Community label/collective Valgeir Sigurðsson. Theory of Machines fully exploits the sonic resources of this unique environment with collaborators such as Valgeir and Sigtryggur Baldursson (The Sugarcubes). 2007.
