artist profile

Aidan Baker has the power to deliver music with an exceptional cathartic power; he guides us in our inner world which is full of resources we often forget as we are too busy following the rhythm of the big cities we live in.

Aidan Baker is a Canadian musician and writer currently based in Berlin, Germany. Active with a variety of group projects—most notably the drone/doom duo Nadja—as a solo artist, Baker explores the deconstructive sonic possibilities of the electric guitar as a primary sound source, creating music that ranges from experimental/ambient to post-rock to contemporary classical. Baker has released countless albums on many different underground labels—Alien8 Recordings, Ici d’ailleurs, Karlrecords, Gizeh Records, and Important Records, to name a few—and has toured extensively with performances in Europe, Japan, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, North and South America, including appearances at such festivals as MUTEK, SXSW, Incubate, and Unsound.
