Ka Baird returns with Bearings: Soundtracks for the Bardos
Ka Baird returns with Bearings: Soundtracks for the Bardos, an album that intertwines elements of the New York based vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and composer’s ecstatic live performances within minimalistic, visceral compositions that expand in scope and sound through collaboration. The album’s eleven movements manifest as shapeshifting invocations defined by their own multiplicity; the emotional outcome of circumstance and grief, played against rigorous conceptualism and musical craft.
Today, Ka shares a video for “Gate VIII,” the first offering from Bearings, directed by Sebastian Mlynarski. Standard and artist vinyl editions of Bearings, alongside a Japanese import CD edition from Plancha, are available for pre-order now / ahead of the March 22 release date.
