Daniel Menche - Melting Gravity [Sige Records 066 Promo]

To be released via the US-based experimental music imprint Sige Records on September 13th, 2k19 is "Melting Gravity", the forthcoming album outing by Drone and Static Ambient master Daniel Menche who's been carving out a unique sonic niche of his own over the course of roughly a quarter of a century now. Split into two parts - "Melting Gravity I" and "Melting Gravity II" - the album opens with a very Ambient focused, repetetive chiming metallic melody which soon is drowned by thick, evolving layers of harmonic, solemn, yet slightly distorted and off kilter Ambient textures telling tales of heartfelt sadness and emotional isolation reminiscent of acts like Kostnice or Kallabris in terms of deep melancholia whilst "Melting Gravity II" starts from a similar point of sound, yet maintains an even deeper, festive and slightly more naturalistic approach musically which makes it a perfect soundtrack for epic, beautiful sunrises or predetermines this one to be used as an excellent musical backdrop for planetariums or other space focused documentations. Recommended.
