More Info

Wenn Musik die sie umgebende Umwelt in Flammen setzen knnte dann wrde sie es bei DANIEL MENCHES Klangkunst tun! FLAMING TONGUES besteht aus 5 Stcken und beginnt mit polternden Geruschen die langsam von einem Drone berwltigt werden..... insgesamt loopig & repetitiv, wie die besten AUBE-works.... auch sonst eher holprig, polternd, klopfende Sounds.... etwas obskur & wieder anders als sonst....

Beautiful densely layered frantic percussions & rhythmic soundscapes, pushing Menche's work even further into new territories of sound and performance. [label info]

....Menche presents us here with one of his typical strategies in counterpointing an expansive timbral minimalism a la Eliane Radigue or Jonathan Coleclough with a blistering vein of scalding noise that threatens to smash through the drone with an incendiary detonation. Menche constantly teases with the possibility of such a violent explosion, but never actually does. Instead, Flaming Tongues stands as a constant pressure cooker of grating textures, seething white-hot noises, infernal atmospheres, and volatile electro-acoustics.
