Description

Multi-instrumentalist, composer, and improviser Fred Frith has been making noise of one kind or another for almost 50 years, starting with the iconic rock collective Henry Cow, which he co-founded with Tim Hodgkinson in 1968.He is best known as a pioneering electric guitarist and improviser, song-writer, and composer for film, dance and theatre. Through bands like Art Bears, Massacre, Skeleton Crew, Keep the Dog, the Fred Frith Guitar Quartet and Cosa Brava, he has stayed close to his roots in rock and folk music while branching out in many other directions. He is currently performing with the Fred Frith Trio and Frelosa. The recipient of Italy's Demetrio Stratos Prize for his life's work in experimental music and an honorary doctorate from the University of Huddersfield in his home county of Yorkshire, Fred is Professor Emeritus at the legendary epicentre of American experimental music, Mills College in Oakland, California. He still teaches in the improvisation master's program at the Musik Akademie in Basel, Switzerland and as visiting faculty in the Universidad Austral in Valdivia, Chile, where he has been collaborating on the creation of a new School of Music and Sound Art. Fred is the subject of Nicolas Humbert and Werner Penzel's much loved Step Across the Border, cited by Cahiers du Cin?ma as 'one of the 20th century's hundred most influential films'.
