Aidan Baker is a Canadian musician and writer alternately based in Toronto & Berlin. He performs as a solo artist and with several groups: Nadja, Whisper Room and Arc. A classically trained multi-instrumentalist, his primary instrument is the electric guitar with which he creates music ranging from experimental/drone to ambient post-rock and contemporary classical. He has released numerous albums on labels from around the world & has authored several books of prose/poetry.
“Lost In The Rat Maze” was released on 25 February and it contains eight brand new trips into the scattered, mysterious world of experimental/ambiental music, exploring between Space Rock, Drone and Shoegaze. Aidan Baker played electric/bass guitars, electronic drums, vocals, flute, tapeloops, piano while Richard Baker delivered live drum loops. This is a dark but glowing trip into the unknown and it sounds like broken pieces of a dream. It’s not my kind of “trip” actually, but still, it has a vibe.
