Bit Reduction - [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.

Compared to the previous time I had seen Craig Renaud's solo project in action, this outing was a little more restrained — which is to say there were no sharp-edged kitchen implements being swung around, and no blood afterwards. Sonically, that demonstrated Renaud's elegant construction and execution a bit more sharply — you can call this some of the smartest "noise" around.
