Ben Frost is one of the most celebrated performers in the electronic music scenario, due to the richness of his many interests; “Aurora” is his last musical adventure into sound, percussion, war and Africa. It keeps the distances from his last albums and it has been developed and recorded together with Greg Fox, Shahzad Ismaily and Thor Harris, drummer from Swans. Frost’s electronic is livening up with drums’ strength and energy and it may be created by his stay in Congo and his collaboration with Brian Eno. One of the most interesting tracks is probably “Venter”, inspired by the story of the biologist and entrepreneur Craig Venter who published first the sequence of human genome, the root of life strictly connected to mother Africa.
