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 have drawn comparisons to Ryoji Ikeda and Luc Ferrari. Frye’s 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 organized the series, Exploring Compositional Epistemologies, which included an installation by Florian Hecker as well as lectures and performances by Roc Jiménez de Cisneros, Curtis Roads, Guerino Mazzola, Reza Negarestani, and James Hoff, at Midway Contemporary Art in Minneapolis. MN Artists called the series “an erudite survey of the fusion of technology, composition and performance exploring the intersections of time, knowledge, self-hood and sonic space.”
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.
