More Info

"A collection of the early works by the Canadian musician. All compositions were recorded in late 90-ies. This is a kind of journal documenting the search for "oneself", one's own style of sound. In fact "Element" sounds a bit more abstract then many late Aidan's albums. And although this album has something from the industrial drones of Troum, Baker still continues the traditions of European drone, upgrading them with his own sound and instrumental skills. On his very first album one can see how good is Aidan in creating the atmosphere. Endless spaces-oceans of ambient wash through our ears. Guitar loops melt into the song of water running underneath a bridge. Aidan Baker is a really acclaimed drone musician, and "Element" shows us the great debut work representing the style which Aidan has been developing and refining during the long years of his career."
