As a solo artist since 1999, Baker explores the deconstructive sonic possibilities of the electric guitar as a primary sound source, creating music that ranges from experimental to post-rock to contemporary classical. He performs in the experimental collective Arc and thedrone doom project Nadja. He has also composed works for The Penderecki String Quartet and The Uxbridge Chamber Choir. Most of his records consist of some lengthy songs and are usually improvised, as are his live shows.
He is also the author of two books of poetry, two poetry chapbooks, and has published poetry, fiction, and criticism in various international and scholarly journals.
