D/B Recommended: Aidan Baker & A-Sun Amissa @ West Germany Berlin | Wednesday, 15.02.2011

Hot on the heels of the release of his encompassing “The Spectrum of Distraction” release on Robotic Empire, Berlin-via-Montreal’s AIDAN BAKER will further fill the pages in his passport!

Baker is a classically trained multi-instrumentalist. His primary instrument is the electric guitar with which he creates music ranging from experimental and drone to ambient and post-rock to contemporary classical music.

He has released numerous albums on labels from around the world & has authored several books of prose and poetry. Even though he likes to keep the arts well seperated, both his poems as well as his music share the same freeness of approach and can either represent a “stream of consciousness”, “spontaneous composition” or a carefully edited and fully composed work.

On his various recordings, he has explored many different sounds, structures and sources, but he is mostly associated with the minimal guitar patterns, delicately treated to create tender drones, which have become his trademark.

Time slowly looses its meaning, but if you listen carefully, you will hear a distant beat, a rhytmical recital and themes locking into each other like rhymes.

Baker shares the stage of the West Germany club with A-sun Amissa. The trio produces a dense, drone-like atmosphere accompanying evocative, melodic string sections and intertwining guitars.

The live show features sections of the recorded output combined with improvisation to unlock new movements and progressions in the music.
