Aidan Baker is a classically trained musician in flute, self-taught on guitar, drums, and various other instruments. As a solo artist, Baker explores the deconstructive sonic possibilities of the electric guitar, creating music that ranges from and incorporates elements of experimental, ambient, jazz, metal, post-rock, and contemporary classical music. In addition to his solo work, Baker also performs with the following ensembles: Nadja, Whisper Room, Infinite Light Ltd., Adoran, B/B/S/, Caudal, and ARC. He has composed and performed work of a more classical nature for the The Penderecki String Quartet, The Riga Sinfonietta, and The Monday Morning Singers.
A highly prolific artist, Baker has toured and performed around the world and over the course of the last decade released numerous albums in various formats on such independent labels as Important Records, Broken Spine Productions, Drone Records, and Alien8 Recordings. He is also the author of four books of poetry and has published poetry, short fiction, and criticism in literary and scholarly journals.
Originally from Toronto, Canada, Baker currently resides in Berlin, Germany.
