From Daniel Menche

The word “Forlorn” is defined as: “abandoned, lost, ruined, doomed for destruction”. In some way, that sums up a lot about the mood of 2020-2021.

We all felt abandoned and lost to a certain degree, in all of our own, various ways. I certainly did, and I thought one aspect that was the most abandoned was my sense of time. It’s as though “time” had abandoned me. or was it the other way around? Maybe I was abandoning time!

My own solution to this recent forlorn feeling is to go on long hikes in forests around this area in which I live. Ideally I want to get lost in my thoughts, and occasionally physically lost.

Getting lost seems to be the main goal and intention of my musical work over the past 30 years. I have an ambition to see how I can get the listener to feel as lost as possible within my sounds and noise.

Have you ever been lost in a forest all alone at night without any lighting? I have, and what a great feeling! I try to translate these experiences in the form of my music. A big gigantic dark forest of drones and noise to get lost in.
