Wayne Baker of San Francisco, CA, USA has been working in the area of live-sound, sound production, professional musicianship, and music promotion for well over a decade. Along with playing instruments his whole life, he has been composing in genres of music ranging from classical/orchestrial to experimental to rock to electronic music (IDM, dubstep, drum and bass, downtempo and ambient) for over 15 years. In 2013, he graduated Cum Laude from San Francisco State University with a Bachelor of Music in Music Theory and Composition. He lives his life completely focused on music.
Heading in the direction of melding electronic synthesis with the organic sounds of nature and electroacoustic experimentation, Baker started Fidelium in hopes of exploring these avenues further. His style ranges from ambient sound textures to fierce and intricately-layered bass music and he is driven toward broadening his production style, as he incorporates his wide and attention-deficit musical taste into his sound.
Fidelium has been an active member, administrator, mastering engineer, and label head at IDMf since August 2006. During his tenure at IDMf Netlabel he released over 30 albums from a diverse population of talented artists within the community. He left the netlabel in July 2011 to pursue new projects.
Now residing in San Francisco, CA, Fidelium begun releasing mixes of various styles via Soundcloud and his website, along with working on new material.
