Ben Frost - All That You Love Will Be Eviscerated [12''] (limited to 700)
Mute is proud to announce a limited edition 12'' release of All That You Love Will Be Eviscerated by acclaimed composer Ben Frost.
The title track comes from The Centre Cannot Hold, recorded over ten days by Steve Albini in Chicago. The music exists not in space, but in a space; it is a document of an event, of a room, and of the composer within it. It is music that is not fully controlled and appears to be anxiously, often violently competing against its creator. It is an attempt to materialise a kind of liquid music.
In collaborating with Albini, Frost - an artist whose command of sound design lies at the heart of his practice - chooses a new kind of raw immediacy and directness in his work. Focusing solely on the performance of his music he hands the reigns of the studio recording process to Albini in relentless pursuit of Theseus' paradox; the question of whether a ship restored by replacing every single part remains the same ship.
