Watch Ka Baird & Pekka Airaksinen's 'Grey Body' video, captured in Utrecht during LGW
In 2018, Finnish electronic music composer Pekka Airaksinen and NYC-based multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Ka Baird convened in Utrecht to write, rehearse, record and perform live. These recordings will be released on October 22 as the 17th installment of RVNG Intl.'s FRKWYS series. The album was completed six months before Pekka Airaksinen's passing on May 6, 2019.
