Elizabeth A. Baker

Eschewing the collection of traditional titles that describe single elements of her body of work, Elizabeth refers to herself as a “New Renaissance Artist” that embraces a constant stream of change and rebirth in practice, which expands into a variety of media, chiefly an exploration of how sonic and spatial worlds can be manipulated to personify a variety of philosophies and principles both tangible as well as intangible.

Elizabeth has received recognition from press as well as scholars, for her conceptual compositions and commitment to inclusive programming. In addition to studies of her work, Elizabeth has been awarded several fellowships, grants, and residencies, in addition to sponsorships from Schoenhut Piano Company and Source Audio LLC. As an experimental filmmaker, her work has been shown at festivals including Women of the Lens (United Kingdom), and the African Smartphone International Film Festival (Nigeria). As a solo recording artist, Elizabeth is represented by Aerocade Music, her first solo album on the California-based label Quadrivium released worldwide in May 2018 to rave reviews. She is founder of the Florida International Toy Piano Festival, The New Music Conflagration, Inc., author of three books, and the subject of a number of scholarly articles, thesis papers, and other academic research. In March 2018, Elizabeth retired from nonprofit arts administration to focus on her international solo career, though she remains committed to the community through workshops and public speaking engagements. 

Quadrivium B-Side in performance takes the form of structured electronic improvisation unfolding as a programmatic journey of the flux between the modern post-ontological world where a secondary self and dual reality exists by means of a persistent silent web presence, and the world of antiquity where we had only one being that was largely defined by our experiences in on the physical plane of reality.

For a portion of Elizabeth A. Baker‘s performance during NMASS 2019 she will be joined by Austin based performers Samuel Friedland, Iris Sidikman, Laura Brackney and Sonya Gonzales. A visual component to the set will be provided by Bahareh Khoshooee.
