FRESH VID: Daniel Menche – Vilke



Dwelling in the Pacific Northwest, sound artist Daniel Menche has had plenty of opportunities to sleep under a blanket of thick clouds, old growth trees, and haunting choruses of howling wolves. Menche decided to approach his fascination with this natural wonder on Vilke, one of a pair of new releases out this month. For this new work, Menche was able to record the wolves in full swing during a rare night at the Oregon zoo. Vilke presents listeners with a massive interpretation of this sound. Menche runs the wolf chorus through his full arsenal of effects processing, tastefully expanding the monolithic qualities of such a majestic natural phenomenon. What really stands out here, however, is the pounding, momentous percussion that emerges from the fog of noise. Check the video for one movement below, and pick the new records up from Menche here.
