Ben Grossman/cheryl o/Barry Prophet - [excerpt]

Ever since washing up on our shores, Neal D. Retke (who performs as {AN} Eel) has been spreading joy and preaching the benefits of D.I.Y. co-operation. A busy member of the international home-taping circuit known for his many collaborative projects, this festival arose from a desire to bring together some of the different musicians he's encountered here so far, mixing together songs and noises over two days in the G.A.S.'s cozy east-end space.

Exhibiting a true richness of sound from Ben Grossman's hurdy-gurdy, cheryl o's cello and Barry Prophet's digital theremin, this set's peaceful ambient drift was one of the festival's highlights.

[You can listen to the band's own recording of their full set over at their soundcloud, alongside some older trio work and duo pieces from cheryl o and Barry Prophet.]
