Aidan Baker (Nadja, Caudal, Adoran, B/B/S, …) and thisquietarmy’s Eric Quach (also of Parallel Lines, Mains de Givre) are both prolific experimental guitar and effects wizards. They have collaborated a few times in the past, and decided to push their joint efforts into uncharted territories. For this Hypnodrone Ensemble, they teamed up with no less than three drummers. Felipe Salazar (Caudal, Muerte En Pereira), Jérémie Mortier (Alice in the Cities, Lady Shot from a Tree), and Dave Dunnett (Man Meets Bear) propel these atmospheric guitar drones with an exciting polyrhythmic drive.
The newly forged band premiered their explorations at N.K. in Berlin last May. The recordings of this set have been expertly mastered by James Plotkin, and are released during the artist in residency of Aidan Baker at Incubate Festival. The Hypnodrone Ensemble will also perform later that week, on Friday, September 19. You can get your tickets for the show here: http://incubate.org/2014/tickets
Don’t expect vintage Aidan Baker or thisquietarmy, but expect something out of the ordinary and exciting. Less doom or drone, more space rock and even stoner rock.
