Title: Vilke
Format: Double LP
Label: Sige
Country: USA
Price: $29.00
"For over 25 years, northwest native Daniel Menche has been involved with innovative methods of composition and sound experimentation. His formative work being rooted in noise has since developed into highly idiosyncratic and sophisticated forms, while remaining integrated with the genres emotionally visceral core. Vilké is another step forward in this ongoing evolution, and a formidable experience for the listener. Animality is a recurrent theme in Menches work, displayed prominently within four long form compositions that comprise the album. An avid and voracious hiker, Menche found great inspiration in the beautiful lament of howling wolves during his overnight expeditions; and ultimately chose these sounds as the core sonic elements for Vilké. By layering and distending wolves voices, a choir of howls was constructed -- a massive sound wall colliding with layers of poly-rhythmic drums, abstracted guitar, and piano. Fluctuating from somber ambiance to a seemingly endless cascade of noise, the songs lure the listener into a darkened forest of howling serenades, propulsive rhythms, deconstructed instrumentation, and mother natures primal cacophony." - Sige.

"Another great artist in the taâlem series that should need no introduction.

Heres another fine example of his huge talent to create loud and powerful but subtle music !" - Taalem.

Artist: MENCHE, DANIEL
Title: Quanta Of Light
Format: 12"
Label: Touch
Country: UK
Price: $16.00
"In a genre known for its randomness and chaotic structure, Daniel Menche has established himself as a musician with an uncharacteristic sense of focus and determination. Rather than creating "noise," he strives for order and cohesiveness. His work originates from the idea that there is no restriction to potential sound sources, especially in terms of a sounds potential sonic energy. Subtle and patient compositions rely on long, dense layers of droning sounds, while abrasive pieces rely on sounds amplified and processed to extreme levels, pushing the full spectrum of frequencies to the threshold. Intense, percussive sound works resonate a primal chaos while gracefully reaching towards something beyond "noise." Through this intensity, Menche bridges the gap between sound and listener, a one-on-one, personal impact with pure sound. The greater the intent, the greater the intensity, and intensity is based upon the blood rising in speed and heat through our bodies. This is dedicated music that expresses the undisciplined purity of emotion and intensity." -Touch.
