Vilké: of Lithuanian origin, a word for the female wolf. 

An avid and voracious hiker, Menche found great inspiration in the beautiful lament of howling wolves during his overnight expeditions; and ultimately chose these sounds as the core sonic elements for Vilké. By layering and distending wolves voices, a choir of howls was constructed - a massive sound wall colliding with layers of poly-rhythmic drums, abstracted guitar and piano.

“(Menche) eschews classification as a noise artist, and while many of his techniques suggest similarities to musicians who work within that realm, he works within specific structures, with a meticulous sense of the relationships between sounds and the overall development of a piece”
- Dusted

“(Menche’s) honed style thrives on subtleties, crescendos, sublimation, and locomotive transformation. One can easily become immersed in his web of carefully sculpted sound hip-gnosis.” 
- Tiny Mix Tapes

“...proof of Menche’s uncanny talent for mutating common sounds into tracks that are dizzyingly unworldly. A tour of his universe is unlike any other and well worth the time and attention invested in attentive listening.”
