BEN FROST + CHRIS CORSANO + LAWRENCE ENGLISH microMONO at the IMA, 19 January, 2008 (Brisbane)

some words from the ROOM40 HQ...

19 January, 2008 (Saturday).

That's right, Iceland resident and current heartthrob of the European
post-electronic sound BEN FROST is headed to Brisbane for his first
show in many years! His album Theory Of Machines has created quite a
stir and this, added to the recently repressed Steelwound (his ROOM40
debut) seems to be only further proof that Frost is really onto
something unique with his densely textured works.

Not only that, but we can also now confirm that percussionist CHRIS
CORSANO will be joining the bill. From rolling with the Free-folk
scene (Sunburned Hand of The Man/MV +EE, Tower Recordings), through
Free Jazz (Evan Parker/John Edwards + Paul Flaherty), Noise (Vampire
Belt/Jim O/Thurston Moore/Dream Aktion Unit +++) and onto the big
stages playing in Björk's live band, Corsano has lit sparks of
invention in every instance. His solo sets are jaw-dropping displays
of not only technical prowess but advanced musicality.

LAWRENCE ENGLISH joins these two monsters of sound to deliver a set
in celebration of the launch of his latest record on Sirr Records -
'IT'S UP TO US TO LIVE'. Following a 5 week stint in Europe in
November and December 2007, he'll deliver a slab of new sound and
debut some new pieces from future releases due mid 2008.

In all an evening not to be missed (!!!) at the IMA on Saturday
January 19th from 8pm - it's going to be dense, delicate, fierce and
loud! Something for everyone!

over and out....
