VIDEO: Mr. NIce Guy with Frenia
Our Music Director, Ben Slowey, is more than on top of the local music scene. In addition to his work for Breaking And Entering, he also hosts the Mr. Nice Guy podcast, an interview-based show that reaches out to Milwaukeeans for conversations about what motivates them. Many of these shows fittingly involve the local music scene, and we’ll be sharing some of them here as well.
Today, Ben talks with improvisational noise trio Frenia – Ryan Winslow Jann, Conner Jann, and Pedro Gutierrez. Their most recent recording “TARV 4+11.5” came out in May. They discussed Frenia’s philosophy of art as a revolutionary act, the Milwaukee noise scene, the Frenia House, creating what feels right in the moment, and Pedro and Ryan’s work with IAM MAM Union.
