Sounds of artificial nature I

http://vimeo.com/24057548

For some time now I have been listening a great deal to Australian composer Ben Frost who is now reciding in Iceland. His music is nature and weather incarnated:

BY THE THROAT plunges into a dense, dark and threatening network of subterranean galleries… If ‘Theory Of Machines’ was the sound of engineering gone wrong, By The Throat is that of nature shutting down, bringing all life forms down in its fall.” –The Milk Factory

His music doesn’t pulsate or tick – it flows and merges. It’s the sound of clenching and  unclenching, of tension and release… Sounds are fed, sustained and brought to slaughter… If nature is a playground to Sigur Rós, then to Ben Frost it’s a battlefield.” –Grapevine
