Nite Comfort: Agencies, Senior Beatbox
Agencies is the electronic/ambient music project of Piero Frenguelli. Based in Toronto, Agencies makes music with synthesizers, drum machines, loops and field recordings. Initially performing and producing as F/Point and later Control, he independently released collections of work focused on techno, noise, and experimental sound design between 1998 and 2007. 2008 marked the beginning of a long-lasting collaboration with Marco Porsia. “Let There Be Light” was born from a common love for music-for-films, shoegazing, esoteric gear, the desire to incorporate a wider palette of sounds and to explore compelling visuals for live performances. From 2011 to 2014, Let There Be Light evolved into the collective “The Radio Fields” for a time of great energy and drive where boundaries were pushed further into psych/noise territory. In 2015 “Agencies” was conceived with the intent of reconnecting to the early electronic work, and aimed at traversing the abstract notion of sounds, noise textures and drone.Agencies is currently working on his next full-length release, expected late summer 2019 and titled “The Number Stations”.
