“Utterly brilliant” Ben Frost is brought to Bimhuis at last

We are pleased to announce that one of the outstanding electronic music composers of his generation Ben Frost will come to Amsterdam for a live performance at the Bimhuis during Viral Radio. As our good friend Scott McMillan puts it, his music “is horrible. Horrible in its lesser-used sense in which it means ‘utterly brilliant’.” And utterly brilliant he is also according to Wire Magazine, who described his recent album By The Throat as “(d)efiantly new, and distinctively dramatic… a feeling of proximity to overwhelming power… all-encompassing and eerily real. (BY THE THROAT) is a sharp-edged Hi-Def encounter with the dangerously sublime.”

We are immensely excited about the prospect of hearing one of our favourite musicians playing at one our favourite music venues in the world. Tickets will be available via Bimhuis, Rush Hour and Concerto soon, as well as online. Please join the event on Facebook, or visit the Bimhuis website for more information.
