This is #8 in Sub Rosa's Framework series -- an extension of their Concrete Electronics Noise series. Portland, Oregon-based sound artist Daniel Menche has established himself as a musician with a sense of focus and determination uncharacteristic in a genre known for its randomness and chaotic structure. Rather than creating "noise," he strives for order and cohesiveness. His presentation of sonic structures is similar to the way a writer depicts a story, an allegory seems to arise, which uses confusion as a symbol for the imaginative process of total sound purity; aural intensity is not a representation of confusion or the chaotic, but a concerted effort to provoke and stimulate the listener's imagination by generating intensely powerful sounds and music. Daniel Menche's work originates from the idea that there is no restriction to the potential sound sources and especially sonic energy. Any sounds -- all sounds are used and exploited to create the music. There are absolutely no barriers or biases in what can be used and have been used. Self-made and recorded sound sources, percussion and instruments are the main emphasis in creating a living and emotional feeling to Daniel Menche's form of contemporary music. 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 most threshold of limits. Menche has amassed a sizable discography on some of the most discerning independent labels in the world and is constantly performing live extensively throughout North America, Europe and Japan with performances that are intense and powerful. Characterized as both extremely loud and patiently subtle, Daniel Menche's live performances define their own sonic presence, an entity that gives form to an emotional rawness with highly textural and dominating sounds. Limited to 700 copies.
