Australian-born, Iceland-based noise artist Ben Frost returned a couple of weeks ago with the surprise Threshold Of Faith EP. As it turns out, the EP was just to whet your appetite for his upcoming full-length The Centre Cannot Hold, the follow-up to his incredible 2014 album A U R O R A, which he recorded over 10 days in Chicago with the legendary Steve Albini. Along with that announcement, Frost has shared an arresting new video for “Threshold Of Faith,” the punishingly beautiful opening track to both the EP and the LP. Shot in Reykjavík with conceptual documentary photographer Richard Mosse and cinematographer Trevor Tweeten, it’s a visually stunning, overwhelmingly blue clip that turns the human form into an abstract landscape. Check it out below.
The Centre Cannot Hold tracklist:
01 “Threshold Of Faith”
02 “A Sharp Blow In Passing”
03 “Trauma Theory”
04 “A Single Hellfire Missile Costs $100,000″
05 “Eurydice’s Heel”
06 “Meg Ryan Eyez”
09 “All That You Love Will Be Eviscerated”
10 “Entropy In Blue”
It seems that one track will feature Indiana footwork producer Jlin:
