Hypnodrone Ensemble is a project conceived by Aidan Baker (Nadja, Caudal, B/B/S) and Eric Quach (a.k.a. Thisquietarmy) as part of an exclusive performance during Thisquietarmy’s European tour in Spring 2014. In the last 10 years, the two prolific guitarists have collaborated on several releases, toured together and shared stages numerous times in North America and Europe. The idea was to present a collaborative, semi-improvisational piece exploring atmospheric guitar drones and propulsive polyrhythms, joined by Berlin-based drummers Felipe Salazar (Caudal, Muerte en Pereira), Jérémie Mortier (Alice in the Cities), and David Dunnett (Man Meets Bear). The performance was recorded live in front of a captivated audience at NK, an artist residence and sound arts organization in Berlin, to be released as their debut album.
