EMPAC Feb. 7: Composer Ben Frost’s Music Doesn’t Just Play, it Unfolds [Berkshire on Stage]

It is like origami, but in reverse. His music doesn’t just play, it unfolds, revealing earthy sonic soundscapes. The work of Ben Frost is not easy to peg. It contains musical elements drawn from contemporary, classical, punk and rock. Yet is not truly any of these, it stands by itself as unique. Resonating with the chords of a piano… is that a whale you hear? Or a pack of wolves? Maybe both. Ben Frost’s compositions are always surprising, and while he may not fill a stadium, there’s a small studio at the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute that is soon to be filled with like-minded listeners looking for new experiences. They will not be disappointed when Ben Frost presents a rare live US performance in EMPAC’s Studio 1—Goodman on Thursday, February 7 at 7:30 PM.
