AUDIO: Frenia – “This Field is Required”
Improvisational noise collective Frenia are out with a new EP. Limitless art, not a point on the map their Bandcamp poetically states, so eloquently describing the fluidity of Frenia’s seamlessly collaborative nature. There’s string, wind and percussion instruments utilized here but also spoken word, friendly banter, hand claps and wordplay; an excerpt of “Madness of the Day” by Blanchot is read by Ryan Winslow Jann in “That Sight, That Wound in My Head.” Aside from the usual folks, Eli Smith, Annie Grizzle, and Christopher Moore contribute. Unfazed by creative categories or constrictions, Frenia deliver a sonic exposition where patience and immediacy cooperate harmoniously.
