JACK ROSEが女性版SUN CITY GIRLSと評したSPIRES THAT IN THE SUNSET RISEの創設者で、前衛、マルチ楽器奏者、シンガーKA BAIRDのソロ・アルバムを〈RVNG INTL.〉がリリース。これは絶対今聴いておくべきだと思います。

電気拡張した声や木管楽器、打楽器等によるフィジカルなパフォーマンス。ドン・チェリーなんかがやっていたことがより現代的な次元で繰り広げられているような。Zach Rowden (bass), Max Eilbacher and Andrew Fitzpatrick (synths), そしてRvng Intl.からソロアルバムもリリースしているZsのGreg Fox (drums)が参加している。 (サイトウ)

Track List

Respires, the second solo album by Ka Baird, blurs the line between word and action, definition and possibility. Spirited yet restrained, bearing its wildly thrummed heart strings and inner calm alike, Respires ventures toward the unknown, charting the shifting ground of experimental music and the rewards born of risk.

Tapping the ecstatic energy and cathartic experience of Baird’s live sets, pushing the extremes of psychological and physical release, Respires represents an unquestionable leap for an artist already out on a limb. Largely written and recorded across the length of 2018, the eight pieces align as a series of visceral actions, captured, culled, and intricately shaped by Baird, then expanded with contributions from Zach Rowden (bass), Max Eilbacher and Andrew Fitzpatrick (synths), and Greg Fox (drums).

Respires was born from the intertwined etymologies of spirit and breath, the results of Baird’s singular approach to extended vocal technique and radical notions of “body music” which push her performances to uncompromising extremes. Channeling a raw energy from an internal depth, the genetics of Respires construct new bridges of communication, reaching across the perceptual boundaries of spiritual and physical.
