The Phantom Gallery Chicago Network is proud to announce Renee Baker as guest- artist in residency. Her residency took place June 1st– December 31, 2016. She worked directly with Phantom Gallery Chicago’s chief curator Alpha Bruton, and Alan Emerson Hicks. The Phantom Gallery Chicago provided technical and administrative support, for the creation of new works and the exploration of new ideas with an exhibition at the end of the residency.
As a disruptive force in composition, Ms. Baker’s eclectic visual score compositions led her to create a gestured conducting language she calls CCL/FLOW (Cipher Conduit Linguistics), which she employs when working with numerous cutting edge groups in Cologne, Berlin, Netherlands, London, Chicago, Portland (OR), and other ensembles around the world.
A further aspect of her composition skills is the development of her painted score exploratorium pieces for ensembles of variable sizes. Ms Baker is also in demand as a lecturer and expert in nontraditional composition techniques, as well as large ensemble “comprovisation”/ improvisation development.
