Eric Frye is a composer, artist, and curator. Exploring non-orientable sonic surfaces, Frye operates between the disciplinary boundaries of sound, philosophy, linguistics, and mathematics. His live performances and installations are focused towards a recalibrated layering of multi-channel diffusions. Simultaneously dissociative and palpable, Frye’s compositions activate an interplay between material and immaterial. His latest recording, On Small Differences in Sensation, which includes texts by Fernando Zalamea, Inigo Wilkins, Andrée Ehresmann and Mathias Béjean, was released by Copenhagen-based imprint, Cejero.
Frye’s work has been shown at Hangar Art Centre, Barcelona; Audio Visual Arts, New York City; Rochester Art Center, Minnesota; Variform Gallery, Oregon: and more. He has performed extensively in the US, UK, Europe, and Asia alongside artists such as Beatriz Ferreyra, Rashad Becker, Curtis Roads, Jeff Witscher, Ben Vida, at venues including Berghain Kantine (DE), ISSUE Project Room (NY), Cafe OTO (UK), Les Instants Chavirés (FR), WWWβ (JP). In October 2016 Frye was artist in residence at EMS Elektronmusikstudion Stockholm. He has forthcoming releases on Anòmia, and Further Records.
"Frye presents a suite of uncompromising, fractured electronics at once recalling the spattered tangle of Keith Fullerton Whitman's recent generations, the chess-like stratagem of Rene Hell, and the incisive freakiness of Florian Hecker." – Boomkat
"I feel like I’ve been subjected to some form of clinical trials / research on how sound can alter one's spatial awareness. Unless you happen to have a deathwish - do not attempt to listen to this whilst driving." – Norman Records
