This is Frost's first release for the Icelandic Bedroom Community Label. At 26 he has already released such critically-lauded works as 2003's guitar exploration LP, Steel Wound on the Room40 Label, which Pitchfork Media USA marked as "An exemplary ambient experience", and the harrowing, self-titled 2005 opus School of Emotional Engineering, which Db Magazine called "...An atmospheric masterpiece". In addition to his solo work, Frost produces his work internationally in various forms including gallery-based installations, scores commissioned for film, dance and multimedia productions (for the likes of The Icelandic Dance Company and as part of A/V installation collective Cicada) and collaborative works, remixes and productions for artists such as Bjrk, Steintryggur, Neotropic, Lawrence English, Stars Like Fleas and Ai Yamamoto. A resident of Iceland, Ben Frost operates primarily in Greenhouse Studios in Reykjav¡k under the wing of producer and founder of the Bedroom Community label/collective Valgeir Sigurdsson. Theory of Machines fully exploits the sonic resources of this unique environment with collaborators such as Valgeir and Sigtryggur Baldursson (The Sugarcubes). 2007.
