Aidan Baker's "Synth Studies II" continues with the techniques and methods established in his first collection of 'synth studies,' released digitally in 2013 by Broken Spine Productions, wherein Baker applies his habitual electronic effects and compositional methods to a 1980s Casio keyboard, rather than his usual guitar. This second collection focuses less on melodies and rhythms and more on slow-moving drones and the layering and looping of long tones.
released March 22, 2016
