      crouton and longbox recordings present:

      DANIEL MENCHE: "CREATURES OF CADENCE"
      concerts + CD

      **************************************************************************

      Crouton and Longbox Recordings will bring Portland, Oregon's Daniel Menche to Chicago and Milwaukee for his first midwest concerts on September 29 and 30.
      In celebration of these performances, a CD of new material will also be released on these dates and available at both concerts.

      **************************************************************************

      Concert details:

      Since the late 1980s, Daniel Menche has performed throughout Europe, Japan, Canada, and both coasts of the U.S., but never before in the Midwest.
      Many from this region have traveled to New York and elsewhere to experience his highly intense performances, which have been referred to as works of "vehement beauty."

      Both concerts will also feature a performance by sound artist Olivia Block.

      Release details:



      Daniel Menche: "Creatures of Cadence" CD

      crou032/lbt040


      Despite what the title might suggest, "Creatures of Cadence" is not about endings, completion, or finality. Instead we find Menche inviting a slew of new mediators into his cathartic miasma. The medium now extends beyond the rich and unfathomable depths of somatic sound. His ongoing dialogue between body and mind has found sympathetic resonators in a myriad of instruments (percussion, cello, horns, and zither) that have proven through the ages of being capable of channeling both our most ecstatic joy and profoundest grief.


      "Creatures of Cadence" finds Menche in full exploratory mode; excavating well-concealed networks of sonorous information through a systematic deconstruction of drone and pulse. In the process, he further erases any perceived division between hearing / feeling and performer / instrument. The result, if consumed at the appropriate amplitude, is nothing less than a sixty minute journey through a voluptuous and pristine mania.



      "Creatures of Cadence" is a work commissioned by Crouton and Longbox Recordings and published in conjunction with Menche's first Midwest U.S. concerts: in Chicago and Milwaukee, September 29 and 30, 2006. Released in an edition of 500, including three full color inserts and overwrap with images of detailed bird drawings peppered with a whisper of the disturbing by Eric Stotik.
