  1. [Disclaimer: Take what you read with a grain of salt. This is a translation of a translation. Also, my Japanese is far from perfect. I used Google translate and other tools (in a careful, piecemeal fashion) to help when I didn't understand something. There are bound to be errors, and discrepancies from what was actually meant by Sean and Rob. I take responsibility for all of these mistakes and infelicities, and welcome corrections. There are also some shorter "side articles" in the publication about e.g. their equipment and use of MAX/MSP, which I will also translate and post later. - joseph]

  3. It’s been a decade since Andy Stott released ‘Passed Me By’, a radical re-imagining of dance music as an expression of “physical and spiritual exhaustion” (Pitchfork). What followed was a process of rapid remodelling: ‘We Stay Together’ (2011 / slow and f*cked, for the club), ‘Luxury Problems’ (2012 / greyscale romance), ‘Faith In Strangers’ (2014/ destroyed love songs), ’Too Many Voices’ (2016 / 4th world Triton shimmers) and ‘It Should Be Us’ (2019 / the club, collapsed) - a run of releases that gradually untangled complex ideas into a singular, chaotic body of work - somewhere between sound

  4. No not really. It’s just a really douchey move to intentionally disappoint a ton of uber-fans that have a lot of interest in, are emotionally invested in, and find solace in the artists’ new music. It’s not much different than your bank promising you a high rate of interest only to turn around and be like humph 0.25% har har jokes on you! Ha! You didn’t get what you expected! So brilliant to mislead you! Ha! I just think the day and age of these mystery campaigns and shit are behind us. Give us the the music. Take our money (the same money the faithful fans have shelled out for...

  5. Late to the party, sorry. I found the dlps because (iirc) back when the Japanese exclusive track on "the campfire headphase" was available, someone pointed out that the sounds toward the middle of the track sounded like Basinski. So I checked it out and learned about the origins of the loops, and thought that his was some artist's right to make art in horrific circumstances when lots of people thought the world was coming to an end (there was much hysteria, but it's really understandable in context), and all that doesn't really strike me as objectionable at all. I don't get the outrage e

  7. It’s a little messy right now- I’ve been going thru an old Windows xp desktop backing up old songs, so it’s in the way. Also my good cassette deck is out for repair, pedalboard is out away, I have some Yamaha he monitors to replace the bx5s (just too lazy) and several modules I need to install and move around (also lazy), but this is close to finished. I also have a sort of “live instrument/toy/video game playroom” in the room nextdoor with acoustic instruments, amps, tape stuff, and a piano in a different room.

  11. Ahhh, the utter confusion, hype train that blasts off, derails, then re-rails, then unrails, slightly torn promises, nostalgia tears, and tasteful melange of misinformation....👌 I nominate this for Most WATMM Thread of 2021

  14. I feel like such a douche for promoting this... but... hi... hello... a game I'm doing the music and sound design for is on Kickstarter and things are going pretty well. Elijah Wood and Patton Oswalt have picked up on it on Twtter which really gave us a boost in the right direction. It's a stop motion platformer. Everything is made by hand. The soundtrack will be released by iam8bit - a double vinyl and digital of course. Hope you like ambient. Here are some early snippets/demos of what you can expect from the soundtrack

  16. Every time there's a new release there's normally a fair bit of discussion in the relevant thread, so I thought it was about time to start a general FSOL thread. Also, I just started a new blog called Fractional Difference, in which I'll be going through every release and song, in order, and looking at various things... all the facts, connections with other tracks, and my own personal feelings about them. It's going to take forever (they released 180 tracks on the launch of FSOLDigital alone), but I'm quite looking forward to revisiting the whole catalogue over the next however long it takes.

  20. Im 25 now, I first heard them in high school when I had my run through of the Warp catalog. Didnt click at first, but then years passed and I had a friend who is collecting modular synths and was talking about AE a lot. I gave them a chance, this was about 4-5 years ago and the Live sets totally blew my mind. Like the fact that they are able to wrap their ideas in Max and replay/interact w them instead of playing mp3s. Im not much into older AEs maybe its that im young, though I love Bine, Flutter, Dropp and some other early tracks. But to me...

  21. That day was a particularly hot one - very unusual for Finland - and because the venue was an open square in the middle of Turku, there was almost no shade anywhere. I was there the whole day, playing records between live acts (it was so hot that the term "warm up" would be ridiculous) - the stage area was very limited - except for Autechre, whose gear was set up static - so there was a lot of hassle setting up and tearing down things between acts. It's probably the most physically taxing gig I've ever had, but it wtas definitely offset by getting to hang out backstage. There...
