Chilling score coming on 12″.
Next month, photographer Richard Mosse will arrive in London to exhibit his 40-minute multi-channel video installation filmed in the war-torn eastern region of Democratic Republic of Congo.
The Enclave is presented in a darkened chamber accompanied by a series of large-scale photos and with an aural backdrop by experimental composer and Bedroom Community regular Ben Frost, who also spent time with Mosse during filming in the DRC.
The oddly psychedelic video was shot on 16mm infrared film, which was initially developed by the military to detect camouflaged enemies and renders the leafy green landscape in bold hues of violet, magenta and shocking pink.
To coincide with the installation, Frost will release a selection of extended pieces from The Enclave on limited edition 12″ on April 7. The records will be available online from The Vinyl Factory and from the exhibition itself, which is open to the public between April 4 and April 16.
It’s not the only unusual project Frost has been working on lately – he’s also been helping to create the fragrance of ‘noise’ as part of a perfume series that also includes ‘bass’ and ‘drone’. Meanwhile his new album A U R O R A is set for release on May 26 – hear the first track, ‘Venter’.
