Audio Foundation presents an Alt. Music Event . . . featuring Daniel Menche with Birchville Cat Motel and Golden Axe.

“If music is like blood - then make the speakers bleed" Daniel Menche

Daniel Menche has established himself as a musician with a sense of focus and determination uncharacteristic in a genre known for its randomness and chaotic structure.

Rather than creating "noise," he strives for order and cohesiveness. Subtle and patient compositions rely on long, dense layers of droning sounds, while abrasive pieces rely on sounds amplified and processed to extreme levels, pushing the full spectrum of frequencies to the most threshold of limits.

Menche's music is never just "noise", but focused explorations of sonic structures that provoke and stimulate the listener's imagination and emotions through the generation of intensely powerful sounds.

This is dedicated music that expresses the undisciplined purity of emotion. Characterized by forcefulness of sound, music that strives for one goal: vehement beauty.

Birchville Cat Motel is the music of New Zealander Campbell Kneale.

“An ever-changing, gently unravelling ball of pure sound, sometimes beautiful enough to make you weep, sometimes ferocious enough to rip the gravel off your driveway”

Moved among other things by '60s minimalism, musicological field recordings, religious music, doom metal, and Appalachian music, and crafting his ecstatic blur-scapes from delicately caressed pieces of electronic junk, Birchville Cat Motel has gained international recognition as one the bright shining lights of what music journos have dubbed 'drone-music'.

Golden Axe are a sound-performance trio from Auckland, known equally for their make-shift aesthetic and the visual “ZAM” of their performances, as the synthy lo-tech music they create.

From humble beginnings busking the streets of Auckland, Golden Axe has gained popularity with both sound-art and rock crowds alike. They have since played in the 'Starkaudio' series at Starkwhite gallery, toured the North Island with 'A Low Hum Magazine' and 'Meatwaters' while in Wellington.

These no-fi mystical genies are now joined by an A.D.D five year old on drums and have resurrected into a phoenix of epic new age interstellar5555 proportions.
