Biography

Matt Borghi and Aidan Baker’s Undercurrents is a collaboration that began in the dark months of late 2003. It had been a succesful year, with regard to matt’s personal and musical life. the year had included a successful tour, a slew of releases, and a general feeling of inspiration. Undercurrents touches on a period that was partially documented through the now-defunct monthly download series. this release shows matt mixing his piano playing with aidan bakers top notch ambiences. this release really explores more of space music perspective. piano chords suspended over a dense and cloudy ambience. fans of Harold Budd, Brian Eno’s Music for Airports, and the Budd collaborations, as well VidnaObmana’s Trilogy release will truly enjoy this work.

*Additional Composer’s Note - All throughout 2002 and 2003 I was listening to the set of Harold Budd and Brian Eno’s records. I found myself playing more and more with piano timbre, with it’s delicate, and melodically faint sensibility. When the option of doing a recording for Zenapolae came up, especially as a collaboration with Aidan, I jumped at the opportunity to craft the piano pieces into something fresh and new. Around this time, I also composed a set of 12 or so ambient piano pieces for a release called Structure that has yet to see the light of day. However, it may find it’s way off the shelf sooner than later…

There are some elements of the collaborations between Robert Fripp and Brian Eno in Undercurrents, the same cascading sense of unreality coming from the guitar and the same delicate precision rising from the piano melodies.

    I always wished for a baker album that is backed up with piano, and alas. Really wonderful stuff for deep headphone listening, or for soundsystem on high volume for full room of doom :)

    "Precipitate" is IMO one of the best ambient tracks ever created...

    behind my closed eyes my soul whispers: "Thank you, dear artist".
