One of the pioneers of the New York avant-garde scene
Multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Kathleen Baird is one of the pioneers of the new New York avant-garde scene. Her work is made up of piano-improvisations, electro-acoustic interventions, rhythm samples, unusual vocal techniques and her unconventional electronic manipulation of the flute.
Her shows at Le Guess Who?, KRAAK Festival and Meakusma in 2018 were each loaded with positive reviews. A 'must-see' this fall in the AB Salon.
'sweeping from alien/avian electronics to Sun Ra-meets-Pekka Airaksinen electro-jazz freenuss, iridescent string and flute movements, and one a-m-a-z-i-n-g piece of flute, vox and pulsing bass that sounds like a winged sister of Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe - practically worth it for this one alone! Seriously - one of the most original and brilliant things we've heard this year...' Boomkat
