Aidan Baker is a multi-instrumentalist, classically-trained in flute, but best known as a guitarist.
Using various electronic effects combined with prepared and/or alternate methods of playing the guitar, he creates music which falls within the ambient/experimental genres but draws on influences from shoegaze and post-rock, contemporary classical and jazz.
Over the course of the last decade, Baker has released numerous recorded works, both solo, with his duo Nadja, and various other group projects on such labels as Alien8 Recordings, Important Records, Die Stadt Musik, and Broken Spine Productions. He is also the author of several books of poetry.
Baker has collaborated in-studio and live with such artists as Tim Hecker, Carla Bozulich, Jessica Baillif, Noveller, OvO, members of The Jesus Lizard, and members of Swans. He has also composed for and performed with such contemporary classical ensembles as The Penderecki Quartet, The Riga Sifonietta, and The Monday Morning Singers. Baker has toured extensively around the world and appeared at such international festivals as FIMAV, SXSW, Incubate, and Mutek.[vimeo 84815931 w=620&h=300]
Andrea Neumann (Piano, Inside Piano, Composition) studied classical piano at the Hochschule der Künste, Berlin. She has been significantly involved in the formation and development of the “echtzeitmusik” scene in Berlin, which borders on fields as varied as noise, electronica, contemporary composed music, performance, and sound art. (see ‘echtzeitmusik berlin selbstbestimmung einer szene’ published at wolke-verlag www.wolke-verlag.de).
She has co-organized “Labor Sonor,” a series for experimental music, film and performance in Berlin since 2000. Andrea Neumann has engaged in intensive cooperations in the mixed border areas between composition and improvisation, between electronic and hand-made music, between instrumental and performative music. Concert and festival performances in Europa, USA, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Russia, Australia and Japan.
Marie Dior is the alias of Portuguese electronic music producer and prolific experimentalist Diogo Correia.
“Marie Dior most unique flavors appear on releases like “0061565377-(F)”, “Encore, Again, Encore”, and the baffling “Euphrates” — works whose contours seem to be generated by unfathomable non-human logics, and yet they gently caress you with anemone tentacles.” (Adam Harper, The FADER).
