...and darkness was upon the face of the deep (2017) is an exploration into the history of subjugation, weaving African-American slave songs, critiques of the American penal system and ruminations of technological dependence together into a continuously shifting soundscape. Timbres meld together, pushing ambiance into driving rhythms into spectral cacophony and back again.
The album draws upon the interests and aesthetic leanings of the Baker-Barganier Duo, a chamber ensemble made up of New Renaissance artist Elizabeth A. Baker and composer/multi-instrumentalist Erich Barganier. The ensemble grew to explore the recently coined genre of New Renaissance art, a discipline that melds poetry, dance, music, experimental theater and more together in each work.
The album can be streamed on Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer, TIDAL, and any other major music streaming service.

Nebulullaby An Interstellar Cloud of Dust (2016) is a compilation that takes the lullaby genre into the realm of experimental electronic music, assembled from an open call for experimental lullabies launched in May 2014.
The compilation includes tracks by well-known artists as well as first releases, with material on vinyl from d.R.e.G.S, 0xA, xname, Erich Barganier and Samuel Hertz and an expanded digital edition containing tracks from Thor Magnusson, Robert B. Lisek, Repl Electric, Claude Heiland-Allen, Marta Zapparoli and more hand-picked gems from the experimental techno, noise and electroacoustic scenes.
The record guides the listener through eerily echoed music boxes to experiments in a syncopated 8-bit berceuse, with detours into clean planes of glassy textures, dives into opaque amniotic drones and concentrated, tender yet ominous moments, such as the sound of beating hearts against saturated, distant washes of feedback. Composed for Nintendo, Atari, Pure Data, Supercollider, D-Box, tape recorders, as well as ultraStethoscopes or using radioactive materials, these recordings treat the lullaby genre as an example of consciousness-altering music.
It is relased via Nebularosa Records and can be purchased here.
