Ka Baird:

avant psych project Spires That In The Sunset Rise. Described by Jack Rose
as a "female Sun City Girls", STITSR have contributed a different slant to
the New Folk movement by incorporating various avant-garde and world music
influences into their music. Their sound has been compared to the
Raincoats, Meredith Monk, Comus and Harry Partch. Their most recent album
"Beasts In The Garden" was described by Marc Masters as "some kind of
long-lost Terry Riley/Angus MacLise collaboration, equally devoted to
divine repetition and center-seeking ritual". Since 2001, they have
released eight full length records and several side releases. Since
relocating to NYC in November 2014, Baird has set off in numerous
directions apart from Spires with new collaborations as well as honing in
on her own solo work. Her current work explores piano improvisation,
electroacoustic interventions, extended vocal techniques, physical
movement, and her unusual electronic manipulation of the flute.*
