One Question Interviews: Aidan Baker

Aidan Baker (Nadja)

SPB: Other than music, what other art forms interest you?

Baker: I would say all other art forms interest me, but I guess that's probably a vaguer answer than you would like...So I guess I'd say literature is my second passion after music, both reading and writing. I grew up in a family that played music and read books, so both art forms were an important part of my upbringing but in my early twenties I was much more seriously pursuing a career as a writer than as a musician. I didn't especially have a lot of success in the literary world, although I have published a few books of poetry. I still try to write when I can, but music has certainly taken precedence in my artistic endeavours. Some of my favourite writers: Angela Carter, Richard Brautigan, Shelley Jackson, Steve Erickson, Iain Banks, David Foster Wallace, William Vollmann, Martin Millar, Mark Leyner, Kelly Link, etc., etc.
