Daniel Menche - Forlorn [Room40 Promo]

Put out on the tape circuit via Australia's ever active Room40-imprint on April 1st, 2k22 is "Forlorn", the latest cassette release by pioneering Portland / Oregon-based experimental electronic music composer Daniel Menche. Active on the circuit for more than three decades and probably best known and recognized for his glacial, oftentimes extended and slow moving works exploring the fringes of the audible spectrum Mr. Menche caters two extended pieces on this one with "Forlorn I" and "Forlorn II" which see electric, somewhat scientific midrange movements atop a foundation of ultra low frequency rumbles indeed inducing a feeling of iso- as well as desolation alongside a certain time dissolving quality inherent to many of Daniel Menche's work as well as many others within this field due to a lack of set sonic markers and quick, if any, repetition whilst otherworldly and somewhat siren'esque harmonic shifts lure one's soul in to follow the sound deeper and deeper into the depths of transdimensional nothingness. A well recommended excursion in sound for all fans and followers of all things Deep Listening Music and beyond.
