Aaron Turner & Daniel Menche
Aaron Turner, best known for his role at the core of the much-loved post-metal outfit Isis, here teams up with an even more ferocious sound-maker: Daniel Menche! Together the two have worked up a single thirty-two minute piece, densely laden with field recordings, noise electronics, vocals and guitar. Nox is released by SIGE in an edition of 400 LPs.
Careful noise-crafter Daniel Menche presents a particularly hefty set of new works, filling up three CDs. Sleeper taps into the minimalist tradition of Charlemagne Palestine, through of course his essential Menche-ness shines through in the form of harsh tones and rhythms. Made with various instruments, field recordings and electronics and released on SIGE in an edition of 500 3CD sets.

Daniel Menche meets Franz Kafka, in a pairing that nobody was expecting. Odradek is not only the name of this album, but also the name of a mysterious creature who features in a Kafka short story (a visual interpretation is provided on the cover). Said story is spoken here (in the original German), accompanied by a Menche-ian soundscape. A curious business indeed.
Large man-of-noise Daniel Menche was, somehow, recently allowed access to a gamelan, that incredible instrument of Indonesia. After recording a session with it, Menche applied his usual heavy processing techniques to create a unique pair of pieces. Marriage of Metals strikes the perfect balance between the original sound of the instrument and the augmented, noisier aspects. Excellent.
Zbigniew Karkowski and Daniel Menche
Feral, a Daniel Menche CD release on Sub Rosa, announces itself with a blurred photograph of a dog that looks like it is seconds away from biting your face. This sends out the right signals, as Feral’s four lengthy pieces use largely natural sound sources (water, stone etc.) which are distorted and processed out of focus, and threaten the listener without breaking into outright violence.

Glass Forest is a wonderfully evocative title isn’t it? It really captures the feel of this release: glistening and pure, but also dark and entangled; organic and mossy, but also sharp and artificial. Daniel Menche is a remarkable music-maker, and this CD release on Important Records captures both his harsh, noisy side and his more restrained ambient side.
Daniel Menche/ Kiyoshi Mizutani
Daniel Menche has a thing about blood, though not in a dodgy fetishistic way (he isn’t that kind of noise artist). Rather, he feels it embodies an intense, visceral creativity that he harnesses for his compositions. Bleeding Heavens uses organ and trumpets as sound sources, although you wouldn’t necessarily know it from the end results, such are Menche’s processes.
