Damon Loren Baker - Birth Pangs [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.

That Damon Loren Baker's name is almost an anagram for "Demon Lore Barker" is on point, as that would almost be an apt description for what went down here, with a droning laptop track the backdrop for some just-almost-audible unamplified vocals, Baker's expression somewhere between possession and catharsis.
