Artist: ¼ Tonne

Songs: [two excerpts]

Recorded at Ratio (Decreation – Night 2), June 3, 2017.

¼ Tonne - [excerpt 1]

¼ Tonne - [excerpt 2]

Given the internal and external pressures that come to bear, it's no surprise that no DIY space lasts forever. It still made it a sad occasion to learn that Ratio was winding down its active presence, news leavened slightly with the corresponding announcement of a series of farewell shows, with many artists making a final return to the space. Three heavy-hitters from Montréal combine in this group, mixing Eric Craven (drumkit, guit, keyb), Nick Keupfer (guitar, reel to reel loops) and Mark Molnar (cello) into something that would make a convincing Constellation platter. There were some cool abstract tension-building moments here, which would then implode as the trio flipped into driving frenzies.
