Cyclopean Wall - [excerpt]

Located in the former Cooper Cole Gallery at Dundas and Ossington, the Endless City pop-up had farmed out curation to a variety of local music presenters over the course of the month, leading with a weekend booked by Jay Pollard's Invocation. After two nights dedicated to invoking Mind and Body, the Sunday-afternoon chaser was dubbed "Invoking the Spirit" — a series of ambient/drone sets with one performance merging seamlessly into the next. I was familiar with four of the five acts on the bill, leaving Noah Gadke, whose Cyclopean Wall project opened the day, as the key moment of discovery. Armed with a six-string bass and a pedalboard he generated some very pleasing ambient rumbles. I have his bandcamp marked for exploration and am looking forward to hearing more of this.
