Ben Frost - Widening Gyre

Ben Frost presented a very special one-off show in Mengi on February 8th titled Widening Gyre.

With Frost’s critically acclaimed 2017 LP ‘The Centre Cannot Hold’ as a departure point, Widening Gyre combines the unique studio approach of the album into a new live performance concept: a powerful and highly volatile multi-point sound environment performed in the round. ⁣

Created during residency at ZKM Karlsruhe - Synthesis, analogue tape and live guitars are all fed in real-time through an array of digital objects which relentlessly push and pull against one another in a new kaleidoscope of sonic ecology.

Steinn Þorkelsson captured the incredible sonic event.
