"Menche's music is built around drones that stand tall and stretch deep and wide." -- Pitchfork Glass Forest is a highly listenable starting point for any newcomers curious about Daniel Menche's vast discography. It is also, according to Menche, the last CD he will release. From now on he'll be releasing his music on LP only, or on DVD to accompany films he has worked on. Recorded in Winter 2005, Glass Forest displays a glistening sound world finely textured with the most delicate of raw organic sound and chaotic electronic noise. Not as extreme as Menche's previous work, a more subtle presence can be heard here. Subsonic bass drums crawl underneath massive sheets of glass-like sound, layering infinitely into a thick, dense forest of delicate noise. For fans of both Daniel Menche's ambient work and his louder violent work, Glass Forest fits exactly right in the middle of these two polarities.
