William Davison/Patrick O'Reilly/{AN} EeL - [excerpt]

A now-infrequent visit to the city from the expatriated Neal Retke was an opportunity to enter the world of {AN} EeL, facilitated by occasional collaborator William Davison as well as guitar hero Patrick O'Reilley. Moving from a buzzing electroacoustic soundfield punctuated by Retke's occasional shouts, things shifted into a sputtering narrative arc, like listening to talk radio in a car beneath an overpass — and eventually ending with a found-sound snatch of Handel's Messiah. Hallelujah indeed!

[William Davison will be performing a collaborative set with Bob Vespaziani at Track Could Bend #47, coming up at Wenona Lodge on Tuesday, February 5th. Meanwhile, Somewhere There's Second Sunday Series will be playing host to the spectacular MFS 10th Anniversary Celebration at Array on Sunday, February 10th and featuring sets from The Allison Cameron Band (Allison Cameron/Thom Gill/Kurt Newman), Lender (Christine Duncan/Laura Swankey/Nilan Perera/D. Alex Meeks) and The Knot (Tilman Lewis/Nick Storring).]
