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.
Blending the primal with the alien, the future with the past, the experimental with skeletal traditional forms, “Symanimagenic” is a track lost in time and place. Composed with the intention of self-displacement, Ka Baird sought to “alchemize [sound] into a wild conduit of energy, essence, and spirit.”
This is the first single ahead of her sophomore album release, Respires, available from RVNG Intl. on October 25, 2019.
