THE SCENT OPERA TRAVELS TO EUROPE: GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM BILBAO

 

After its recent success at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the worlds first ScentOpera, Green Aria, will have a Europe premiere at the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. 

 

Bedroom Community’s Valgeir Sigurðsson and Nico Muhly composed the score for this unique experimental work. The music is played in a darkened theatre while the theater seats will be equipped with "scent microphones", especially invented for this production, to deliver precisely-timed scents to the audience.

 

Valgeir and Nico will participate in a panel discussions before the performance on October 13th along with the fragrance designer Christope Laudamiel and director Stewart Matthew.

NEW ALBUM :: BEN FROST / BY THE THROAT

 

We are proud to announce the release of Ben Frost's second full-length album for Bedroom Community, BY THE THROAT.

 

Where Frost's last album, Theory of Machines, came sterilized in fluorescent light, BY THE THROAT is blood red and cloaked in shadow. Here, Frost draws heavily on sounds from Borgar Magnason's doublebass, that growls throughout and is often so distorted it transforms the instrument into pure bestial noise. The album also features performances by the Amiina string quartet, The Arcade Fire's Jeremy Gara, Swedish metal outfit Crowpath and our very own Nico Muhly.

 

BY THE THROAT will be released on October 19th, but we can't wait any longer to give you a little taste of this new music, so  HERE you can download a track from the album "The Carpathians" for free.

 

"You get the feeling a lot of electronic music is made with the idea of being a soundtrack in search of a film. Ben Frost¹s "The Carpathians" is the film; no images or dialogue, but somehow complete in all its suspense and dark nature, with wild things and mounting dread unfurling like a narrative. Frost is an Australian who's lived in Iceland for a handful of years, where he's found a place in the Bedroom Community community..." - Mike Wolf, RCRD LBL website
