Artist Details: ARC

formed spontaneously in 2000 at a performance at The Ambient Ping, Toronto’s long-running live ambient/experimental music series.

ARC’s sound is centered on the melodic loops, textures, & samples provided by heavily-effected guitar & other melodic instruments. This is overlaid with tribal-esque rhythms provided by various percussive instruments; drum kit, djembe, tabla, wood blocks, etc. With this combination, they create a roiling tapestry of both rhythmic & ambient sound, a sound simultaneously prim(ev)al & avant-garde.

ARC is nominally a trio made up of Aidan Baker, Richard Baker, & Christopher Kukiel, but they often expand their ranks & have performed collaboratively with a variety of performers: Pholde/Knurl, Unravelled Brown Cassette Tape Lying On A Freeway, The Blameshifter, Building Castles Out of Matchsticks, cheryl o & others. For a performance history, please see the list
