Ben Frost - The Centre Cannot Hold

Mute is proud to announce The Centre Cannot Hold, the fifth album from acclaimed composer Ben Frost, his first since 2014’s landmark A U R O R A. The album was 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 materialize a kind of liquid music.
