Tension building tunes absent of guitar piano or strings. Ambient music made threatening and violent!
Australian born Iceland-based producer and composer Ben Frost returns to Merge Records attacking the hell out of the ambient genre with this vicious and threatening approach in the process. Devoid of any traditional melodic instruments – what's left is a new world of fiercely synthetic shapes and galactic interference. As Frost puts it himself the tracks “don't just stroke the back of your head in a placating way but kind of punch you in the head”. FFO: Tim Hecker Oneohtrix Point Never
