In der elften Folge der Konzertreihe „broken sound“ geht es um drastische Sounds, um die Möglichkeiten, mit Noise das Gefühl für Raum und Zeit aus den Angeln zu heben. Beide Akteure stehen für unterschiedliche Ansätze: Menche ist der Krach-Malocher, der sich auf seine Intuition verlässt. Er baut in schamanisch anmutenden Noise-Ritualen eine physische Energie auf, die sich direkt auf das Publikum übertragen soll. Der Beat zum Vibrieren der Schädeldecke, quasi. Robert Piotrowicz ist zählt zu einer jüngeren Generation Musiker und ist einer der wichtigsten Experimentatoren in der noch frischen Szene in Polen. Er ist der Gründer und Kurator der Musica Genera Festivals, das zahlreiche Improvisatoren erstmals nach Warschau brachte. Piotrowicz bezieht sich in seinen Klangverschachtelungen sowohl auf Industrial und Noise, als auch auf Elektroakustische Musik und Akusmatik. Er arbeitet mit einem modularen Doepfer-Synthisystem und peitscht gnadenlos Klangpartikel durch den Raum.
„broken sound“ wird kuratiert von Till Kniola/aufabwegen und gefördert durch das Kulturamt der Stadt Köln und das Ministerium für Familie, Kinder, Jugend, Kultur und Sport des Landes Nordrhein-Westfalen.

DANIEL MENCHE


Working within sound since 1989, Daniel Menche spills musical blood in a manner invested with a deeply personal sense of wonder and humanity that pours from the speaker channels, casting him as a totally singular figure in the world of audio limit-pushing. Gushing waterfalls, storms, throat, skin, heart, massive drums, kids choirs, acoustic instruments, pianos and organs, junk electronics, high tech electronics, garbage, dirt, gold and diamonds . . . There are no rules. Any and all sounds are possible conduits to music. For Menche there are absolutely no barriers or biases in what can be used. Everything he produces, be it records, live performances, field recordings or video documents, can be seen to explore immersive sensory experience in new, raw and invigoratingly honest ways.

With scores of releases on cornerstone labels like Editions Mego, Important, Touch and Sub Rosa and close ties with a host of similarly broad-spectrum adventurers from Stephen O’ Malley through to Vicki “People Like Us” Bennett, Menche is an invigorating and engrossing onstage force, whether coaxing relentless and all-enveloping waves of sound from his own body via metal objects and a bank of pedals or in accompaniment to his own eye-poppingly intense visual work, with the uncompromising majesty of the natural world a recurring theme.
