Boomkat Product Review:
Just as the Centuries old image of a snake chomping its own tail was supposed to signify eternity, so this arty inclined aural patchwork from Daniel Menche welcomes you in with the same stuff as he calls time, giving the impression of a never-ending (but subtly shifting) story. Top and tailed by an avalanche of dirty distortion and claggy feedback, Sirocco is a 52 minute journey into multilayered sound collage and hard as nails dronecore. Adopting a similar method to Tod Dockstader's Ariel series, Menche has taken a bagful of minute long sound samples (donated by a motley crew of his peers; Erik M, Akira Rabelais, John Duncan, Asmus Tietchens etc.) then got down to some serious cooking, stewing them altogether into a belly filling whole. At times downright awkward, the CD's single track is full of dead ends and false turns that will both delight and infuriate the listener as you are lead into a labyrinth of drone and dissonant fuzz. Thankfully more than a self-indulgent exercise in clever-clogs avant bollocks, Sirocco is one of those deceptively simple pieces of work that on the surface seems to lack cohesion but give it time and it'll soon be growing all over you like an aural ivy.
