The first Friday of each month on solipsistic NATION I feature a live set from an artists and today's show is a recording of Ben Frost's performance at St Katherine's, a 16th century Gothic church in Krakow for Unsound in 2008.
Ben Frost is a musician, composer and producer who draws upon minimalism, post-punk, black metal and noise in his music. Ben's album, Theory of Machines, gained him critical acclaim and his most recent album, By the Throat, cemented his place as an artist on the global stage.
Ben joins us today from the Bedroom Community studios in Iceland.
I'd like to thank Mat and Radek from Unsound for sharing Ben concert on this week's show.
Ben's concert came in under an hour so I asked HC from the Headphone Commute blog to put together a mix of Ben's studio tracks to round out today's show. HC is the man who turned me on to Ben so this is kind of my way for thanking him.
