The KissKiss Ballroom
Aidan Baker is a musician and writer alternately based in Toronto and Berlin.
Classically trained in flute, he is self-taught on guitar, drums, and various other instruments. As a solo artist, Baker explores the deconstructive sonic possibilities of the electric guitar as a primary sound source, creating music that ranges from experimental to post-rock to contemporary classical.
He also performs in the experimental collective ARC and the ambient/doom metal project Nadja.
He has toured in both North America and Europe, and has made appearances at the OM Festival, MUTEK, South by Southwest, and the Distillery Jazz Festival.
The Digital in Berlin Music Salon takes place @ The KissKiss Ballroom either on the third or last Tuesday of every month. The event series will feature serious forms of quality music from forward-thinking electronic/experimental musicians to folk & singer-songwriters, classical minimalist and drone composers.
The Ballroom is a top floor loft directly above Mauerpark; an exclusive hairdressing salon in the daytime, and at night a relaxed and unassuming space with international events and performances.
