Ben Frost at the greenroom

29/06/2007 / 21:00 - 22:30

To The Left of the Rising Sun presents critically acclaimed Icelandic based artist and composer Ben Frost who performs work from his latest album at the greenroom. Influenced by the stark natural environment of his new home country and the contrasting abysmal winter darkness and endless summer light, Frost’s soundscape references the Baroque and the sublime and carries its audience into unexplored territories.

Frost has produced work extensively in various forms including installation, work for film and dance and has released several widely acclaimed albums such Steel Wound in 2003, the opus School of Emotional Engineering in 2005 and most recently Theory of Machines in 2006.

£5/£3 (conc.) Bookings tel: greenroom on 0161 615 0500 or click on Ben’s image to Manchester International Festival’s website.
