Ben Frost announces details of his new album, Scope Neglect. Due out on standard vinyl, CD and digitally via Mute on March 1st, 2024, it launches today with a new track, “The River of Light and Radiation.”

Frost’s music has reached across many mediums, including film, television, and opera, earning praise for his score for Julia Leigh’s Palme d’Or-nominated Sleeping Beauty and scores for TV series such as 1899, including a collaboration with Eliot Sumner (AKA Vaal), Raised By Wolves, Fortitude, and the cult series Dark. Additionally, his Opera creations, including The Wasp Factory and The Murder of Halit Yozgat, have been performed at London’s Royal Opera House and Hannover’s Staatsoper, cementing his position in the world of contemporary music and live arts.

Following exhibitions for Broken Spectre, his collaboration with Richard Mosse, at London’s 180 Studios, Melbourne’s National Gallery of Victoria and The Momentary Museum Bentonville, Arkansas in 2023, the New York debut of Broken Spectre opens this week at the Jack Shainman Gallery (continuing until March 16th). Ben Frost’s solo installation Among The Petals, a new commission for The Momentary Museum in Arkansas, will run until April. This follows the acclaimed solo installation work A Predatory Chord which Frost presented in Athens in May. Frost’s collaboration with artists Susannah Sayler and Edward Morris to score their Prophecy of Butterflies will also be on view in a neighboring gallery at The Momentary.
