1 - BAKER, AIDAN - ANEIRA - (CD) 
GLACIAL MOVEMENTS


Aneira (Welsh for 'snow') is one long, slowly changing piece created using only a 12-string acoustic guitar, manipulated and played with different tools, as a sound source in order to make sounds resembling that of ice moving or breaking and of wind or snowstorms. Aidan Baker also wrote a poem about Aneira, that will be inside the digipack.

3 - BAKER, AIDAN - BROKEN & REMADE - (LP) 
REVOLVERMANN


Hand-numbered and limited to 500. A vinyl re-issue of a long out-of-print and hard to get 2007 cd release, Broken & Remade is a strange mix of post-rock, drone, glitch, jazz, and experimental rock. Each track is constructed from 4-8 second samples of analog instruments, looped and layered in such a way as to blur the lines between digital and analog music, constructed and composed, performance and digital manipulation. Comes with digital download card (including 2 extra tracks not included on vinyl) To quote Aquarius Records' review of the cd version: "[T]hick slabs of distorted sound turned into stuttering fuzz drenched drones, chopped into staggered sonic pulses over drifting mariachi trumpet. Intense post rock workouts gradually become more and more dense until they are dizzying squalls of skittering drums and tangled guitar melodies. Pretty far out, but the songs never become unhinged...some seriously deft composition, creating an immensely appealing alien post rock jazz, unlike anything we've heard before." Instrumental sounds provided by: Aidan Baker - electric guitar, bass, flute, vocals Richard Baker - drums Lucas Baker - trumpet Sarah Gleadow - vocals, violin Aidan Baker is a multi-instrumentalist, active as a solo musician and with such bands as Nadja, Whisper Room, and Infinite Light Ltd. Baker has toured and performed around the world and released numerous albums on such labels as Alien8 Recordings, Beta-Lactam Ring Records, Important Records, and Essence Music..

4 - BAKER, AIDAN - CLOSURE AXIOMS - (CD) 
MISKATONIC SOUN


With his newest solo album, enigmatically entitled Closure Axioms, released on the newly-established Polish label The Miskatonic SoundLab, Baker presents nine spatial tracks, gently crafted with an instrument he is undoubtedly best at - solo electric guitar. Only with such an austere tool was he able to deliver such mesmerizing tunes. Aidan Baker is a classically trained Canadian multi-instrumentalist currently based in Berlin. Recognized for both his solo work as well as doom/drone duo Nadja, he has already released a great number of records, also in collaboration with other musicians from all over the world (his projects include ARC, Infinite Light Ltd., Whisper Room, Adoran). Hand-numbered and limited to 500 copies! .

5 - BAKER, AIDAN - LOST IN THE RAT MAZE - (CD) 
CONSOULING SOUNDS


With Lost in the Rat Maze Aidan Baker (als know from the drone project Nadja) produces an unconventional album - even to Baker-standards. Having been known for his extensive ambient soundscapes, Baker chose a different approach to his sound weaving - albeit true to the "Bakersound". In stead of a densely layered and broad sound palette, Baker has almost embraced a "postrockish" method of composing. More compact, pointed and clear progressions can be discovered, together with a diverse array of instruments, sounds and techniques. Expect the classic Aidan Baker elements: captivating, fascinating and repetitive mesmerizing sounds - but with a different twist to it.Aidan Baker has worked in the past with artists like John Duncan, Tim Hecker, Zev, Matt Borghi, Jakob Thiesen, .

8 - BAKER, AIDAN - SPECTRUM OF DISTRACTION - (CD) 
ROBOTIC EMPIRE


Specifically designed to be played on shuffle and yield a completely unique experience each time, Aidan Baker's audacious monsterpiece The Spectrum of Distraction takes a nod from Zappa's technique of "xenochrony" and runs it though the digital age via the shuffle aspect of CD and MP3 players. 96 (!) tracks spanning two discs make for an incredibly varied landscape on each listen; with pieces ranging from just a few seconds to over seven minutes, there is no shortage of diversity. Hallucinatory dreamscapes weave into frantic noise into dubby passages into chilled-out jazz into psychedelic grooves into an oppressive industrial crunch into a hip hop bop into almighty sludge dirges and almost everything else the kitchen sink offers. Start to finish, through and through, nowhere else is it possible to experience anything quite like Baker's truly enthralling The Spectrum of Distraction. Well-known as a core part of prolific heavyweights Nadja, Baker is backed here by an impressive array of notable drummers who've cut their teeth in the likes of Swans, The Jesus Lizard, Slowdive, Killing Joke, Godflesh, Jesu and many more. He began the project in 2009 by soliciting drum tracks and loops, ending up with roughly six hours of material from 18 different percussionists, then recorded guitar and bass to go along with them throughout the winter of 2010. The mass of content was scaled down to the 96 slices (spanning two hours) that appear on this pair of discs. The Spectrum of Distraction is housed in a beautifully illustrated 2xCD gatefold pack; the complete six-hour set of individual sessions is included as a free digital download. THE DRUMMERS: (alphabetical by last name) Aidan Baker (Nadja, ARC, Whisper Room, Infinite Light Ltd.) Richard Baker (ARC, Cymbl) Victor Cirone Andrew Crawshaw (The Silent Ones) Alessandro Curvaia (Shora) Bruno Dorella (OvO, Ronin) David Dunnett (Man Meets Bear, Ça Va Mal) Thor Harris (Swans, The Angels of Light, Shearwater) Steven Hess (Panamerican, Locrian, Ural Umbo, Cleared, Haptic) Kevin Micka (Animal Hospital, Neptune) Mac McNeilly (The Jesus Lizard) Ted Parsons (Swans, Prong, Foetus, Godflesh, Jesu, Killing Joke, Treponem Pal, Teledubgnosis, Necessary, Wordsound Projects) Phil Petrocelli (Great Falls, Jesu, Black Noise Cannon, nov23, The Living Jarboe) Simon Scott (Slowdive) Geoff Summers (Batillus) Jakob Thiesen (Nadja, Whisper Room, Students) Brandon Miguel Valdivia (Picastro, Not the Wind Not the Flag, I Have Eaten the City) H.

9 - BAKER, AIDAN - THE CONFESSIONAL TAPES - (LP) 
PLEASENCE


Aidan Baker's The Confessional Tapes is another of his more song-oriented albums, though here drifting between slowcore, dreampop, abstract jazz, and glitchy electronica. Baker originally began working on this record in Toronto several years ago, but lost the audio files in a hard drive crash. Those files which were recoverable from the original recordings, corrupted and glitchy, ended up forming the backbone of the album, providing a fragmentary and abstract structure to the songs as Baker worked on them in his adoptive home of Berlin. Aidan Baker is a Canadian musician and writer who has toured and performed around the world, both solo and with his partner in the "ambient-doom" duo Nadja. A prolific artist, Baker has released numerous albums on such labels as Alien8 Recordings, Important Records, and Drone Records. He is also the author of a several books..
