Richard Mosse - The Enclave - 2014
This limited edition by Richard Mosse consists of two mesmerizing 15-minute compositions created by Frost especially for this format, based on his original multi-channel score and sound design for the audio visual installation, The Enclave (winner of the 2014 Deutsche Börse Prize).
During his collaboration with Richard Mosse, Frost travelled deep beyond the frontlines of war-torn Eastern Congo to produce this score. Mosse says: "My collaboration with Ben Frost has been a leap of faith, for both of us. We have worked our genres against the grain in an attempt to embrace the inadequacy of our tools, and ourselves essentially, to communicate eastern Congo's humanitarian disaster. Through accepting that failure, and allowing our work to fall in on itself - to collapse, distort, and tear itself apart - we have at least been true to ourselves. Along with the cinematographer Trevor Tweeten, I feel the three of us have begun a journey which transcends our specific craftsmanship and is greater than the sum of its parts. This is the result of implicit trust, intuition, friendship, and love."
