Ben Frost has unveiled the video for Rare Decay, previously only available as an exclusive bonus track from the Japanese release of A U R O R A. Created by MFO, the video and free download of the track comes on the eve of Ben Frost’s return to the UK.

Ben Frost w/ MFO performs at the Oval Space, E2, on 30 April 2015, with support from Laurel Halo and Jacques Gaspard Biberkopf – po.st/BenFrostOS.
This new collaboration between Ben Frost and MFO debuted as a commission from Poland’s Unsound Festival and focuses in on one of the permeating themes of Frost’s most recent album, A U R O R A… Light. Frost’s mandate was that it should “feel like being inside a particle accelerator”. MFO’s performance with Ben Frost sits at the forefront of hijacked digital technology.
MFO (Marcel Weber) is a visual artist who works with imagery, light and space. He has been creating and directing audiovisual performances, installations and video works since 2001. MFO’s work is marked by a defined and distinctive aesthetic and his light performances are concerned with memory and perception, identity formation and dissolution – particularly in the context of possible futures and their underlying mythologies.
Frost’s worldwide tour continues into 2015.
