Ben Frost returns to Amsterdam on May 20th to play his new tracks from his long awaited fifth studio album. In doing so, the Muziekgebouw will leave its beautiful location at the IJ just this one time to visit our building. We proudly present Muziekgebouw at Trouw with live performances by Ben Frost and Nisennenmondai!
On his new album A U R O R A, Ben Frost deepens his intensely structured sound art and moving post classical electronic minimalism, ranging from his praised albums like Theory of Machines (2007) and BY THE THROAT (2009). This time without guitars, pianos or warm snare instruments. Instead he created a new world where drums, synthetic shapes and galactic interference are featured heavily. Like a full-on post apocalyptic dance floor that threatens to be subdued by powerful diesel generators. The other live act on this night will be Nisennenmondai from Tokyo. This no-wave/kraut-rock/japanoise/disco trio has plenty of well-known fans like Battles, Prefuse 73 and Mogwai. Support on this night will be provided by Luc Mast.
