Portland noise-music veteran Daniel Menche’s career has been a testament to the power of controlled sonic chaos as an agent of annihilating transcendence. Making you feel obliterated is Menche’s standard operating procedure, and he’s a reliable professional at that important task. Check out this year’s Cave Canem for one of Menche’s most sublime drone releases. Cameron Shafii—who runs the excellent experimental-electronic label Ge-stell (CoH, Sote)—is an Iranian producer from San Francisco whose work seemingly radiates out of the highest strata of physics and mathematics. As with the output of Iannis Xenakis, Conlon Nancarrow, and Ryoji Ikeda, Shafii’s piano- and computer-based compositions can take on harsh, disjunctive qualities, but sometimes clouds of beautiful drone and melody waft through his complex sound edifices. From what I’ve heard, Shafii is an electroacoustic wizard whose performances will keep you riveted even as they’re whiplashing your expectations. Expect some music tonight from a forthcoming collab with the great Scald Rougish (aka Chris Douglas, aka O.S.T.). DAVE SEGAL
