I'm not sure Aidan Baker really needs an introduction. Also a member or the tribal-ambient trio Arc (remember "13th" we released some months ago), he has built an impressive discography in a few months, releasing his beautiful drone/ambient guitar-ish music on every interesting label (Mystery Sea, DTA, S'Agita or The Locus OF Assemblage to name but a few). Of course we couldn't not be part of (smile !). So here is "the taste of summer on your skin", "a melodic, shimmering multi-instrumental drone track" as Aidan describes it himself.
approach of instruments is that of an emotional paintbrush,
breathing the air all around, soaking into its scents, the subtle
tonal vibrations & colours to reach a sort of pure
unreducible moment of communion...
Here, between layers of filamentous clouds,
sleeps a flowing light,
drawing delicate patterns & lasting traces...
Resonances come loose
in a slow imperturbable graceful carousel,
a vertigo of lost feelings...
As an handful of sand running out into the breeze,
the motion is melancholic,
the mood warm & contemplative...
Hear your skin oozing with deep summer tales..." (Chalkdc/Mystery Sea)
