Brian Eno to Mentor Ben Frost in Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative
- Words: Patric Fallon
Much like the music-related programs offered by Red Bull or Mountain Dew, Rolex is in its fifth year of offering fresh and innovative artists an opportunity to be taken under the wing of a legend in their field with the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative. All of the creative outlet bases were covered in the proceedings (dance, theater, literature, film, visual arts, and music), and the final results have just been announced. On the musical end of things, producer/musician/icon Brian Eno handpicked Australian-born Icelandic composer Ben Frost (pictured above) to join him for a year-long stint of private mentoring. What will come of the tutelage is anyone's guess, but regardless, how completely stoked must Ben Frost be?! Hats off to him.
