Dan Melchior has become an unlikely 21st century experimental music icon. On his new album, Melpomene, Melchior finds himself removed from any established school of sound. At times caustic, dubbed out and/or haunting, Melchior recalls obscure records we've never heard. The source sounds were mostly recorded on a little Sony mini cassette recorder. Some is live (pots and pans being hit etc.) slowed down on playback using the slower speed on the recorder - some of it was recorded off of records and tapes, using the same recorder.

The source sounds blurred to fit Melchior's tonal needs. Melodies arrive as well, the melancholy ballad "Mall Walker" evokes images of Satie if he recorded for Vinyl On Demand. The influence of his wife Letha Rodman Melchior is clearly evidenced as well, their combined techniques explored through years of creative collaboration. 
What is an experimental record? Perhaps the best definition is, an album that you won't know what it sounds like until you drop the needle. Mastered by Rashad Becker. 180g vinyl with Old Style Tip-On jacket.
