Lost in the Rat Maze
With Lost in the Rat Maze, Aidan Baker delivers an unconventional album-even by Baker standards. Known for his extensive ambient soundscapes, here he takes a different approach. Instead of a broad, densely layered palette, he employs post-rock composition methods: more compact, pointed and clear progressions together with a diverse array of instruments, sounds and techniques. Expect the classic Baker elements-captivating, fascinating, repetitive, mesmerizing sounds-but with a twist.
