Baker-Bargainer Duo (Florida)
The Baker-Barganier Duo formed in September 2016 when multi-instrumentalist Erich Barganier joined forces with New Renaissance artist Elizabeth A. Baker to create a duo that combines spectral sonic landscapes, motion and visual art. Fusing toy piano, mandolin, experimental electronics, kinetic motion and more together, the ensemble explores original sonic landscapes and blurs the boundaries of experimental, classical and progressive music to create a unique experience. The Baker-Barganier Duo are touring in support of their new album, …and darkness was upon the face of the deep, an exploration into the history of subjugation that weaves African-American slave songs, critiques of the American penal system and ruminations of technological dependence together into a continuously shifting soundscape.
