Daniel Menche - Glass Forest - CD
Glass Forest is a highly listenable starting point for any newcomers curious about Daniel Menche's vast discography. It is also, according to Menche, the last CD he will release. From now on he'll be releasing his music on LP only, or on DVD to accompany films he's been working on. Glass Forest is also the companion release to Body Melt which is being released simultaneously on Important on LP only. Recorded in the Winter of 2005, Daniel Menche's Glass Forest displays a glistening sound world that's finely textured with the most delicate of raw organic sound and chaotic electronic noise. Not at all extreme, as with Menches previous works, but rather a more subtle presence can be heard here on Glass Forest. Subsonic bass drums crawling underneath massive sheets of glass-like sound, layering infinitely into a thick and dense forest of delicate noise. For fans of Daniel Menche's ambient work and also his loud violent work, Glass Forest fits exactly right in the middle of these two polarities.
