  1. 2020 was positive for Autechre. A sentence that does not fit many artists in the crisis year. With SIGN and PLUS, Sean Booth and Rob Brown released two albums on their house and farm label Warp. The first in particular was featured in numerous annual best lists and, with its timelessly beautiful melodies, provided a musical highlight of the last year. After the sprawling elseq and NTS parts, the introverted veterans also returned to the conventional album format with which they irrevocably inscribed themselves in the history of electronic music, especially in the nineties. At the beginnin

  2. That Humo thing’s full of misquotes. Some of it’s prob just translation errors, or him not understanding the accent or getting words wrong but some is straight up not what we said at all and totally made up. Some of it’s the literal opposite of what we said. You should ask the journo to release the recording but he prob won’t do that. It is funny though esp the bit about Radiohead, almost wish we’d actually said that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  4. Stumbled across this fine picture of Autechre that I have never seen before. Not sure if it has ever been posted here before: Source with original magazine scan + interview : http://ambientmusicguide.com/blog/sound-geezers-mixmaster-morris-beaumont-hannant-autechre-melody-maker-1994/

  5. ftfy: Für Autechre verlief 2020 positiv. Ein Satz, der im Krisenjahr nicht zu vielen Künstler*innen passt. Mit SIGN und PLUS veröffentlichten Sean Booth und Rob Brown zwei Alben auf ihrem Haus- und Hoflabel Warp. Besonders das Erste fand sich in zahlreichen Jahresbestenlisten wieder und sorgte mit seinen zeitlos schönen Melodien für einen musikalischen Höhepunkt des letzten Jahres. Nach den ausufernden elseq– und NTS-Teilen kehrten die introvertierten Veteranen außerdem zum konventionellen Albumformat zurück, mit dem sie sich besondern in Neunzigern unwiderruflich in die Geschichte elektr

  7. I have come here to pay my respects. Thank you Daft Punk for your choonage over the ages. I wish you each the best, and I hope your respective $70,000,000 net worth is enough to live at least okay. I know- electronic music was hard to make money from, but hang in there- and don't be ashamed to work at McDonald's just to get by! You didn't make much money, but you changed lives. And that's all that matters. I would say that Daft Punk had a wonderful path of a career, and it was cool to see their transformation as artists. Hard to believe the TRON Legacy soundtrack w

  9. Alcohol withdrawal day 4: I finally got some sleep, but I feel like a slug today. I ate a full size breakfast for the first time since my last drink, and it's put me in bed for the past three hours. I haven't been able to listen to music, read, or browse the internet at all (except to write this post). I've been spending all of my time with friends who are helping me deal with the recovery, and today I'm in bed by myself thinking about the shit I had been numbing with alcohol. The initial panic is over so I can finally think about it rationally. CBD oil...

  11. I’ve been offered that gorgeous, glorious piece of recording history : a Nagra 4.2. It belonged to my father in law (very cool dude, former filmaker who’s always been fascinated by sound), he gave it to me yesterday. It’s a thing of beauty really. I can’t afford servicing it yet but it’s supposed to be working as is. It’s a mono device, so I’ve yet to figure out if I can reliably print full stereo mixes on it (like recording left/mid first then right/side to eventually rebuild the stereo mix ?), but I bet running synths through its signal path without hitting the tape can sound lush

  12. The memorial was beautiful... hit hard. Some videos of his live performances and electronic music, a lot of amazing pictures and his family and friends shared memories. People are still sharing their memories now as the memorial wraps up - he really impacted a ton of people especially in the music community... Truly gut wrenching. Insanely talented and very humble young man gone far too soon. A wonderful contributor to this community. I’ll never forget the late night chats on all kinds of crazy subjects, or weird and fun video calls so long ago when I just joined this community.

  13. China. What’s going on with this place? 500 million people live there but the only foreigners to visit are diplomats and people who “taught English” for a year and wanted to travel. In China they eat pigs whole, sometimes raw which is called “street food” but the rich prepare them via “bbq.” They birthed many philosophies having to do with men who said obscure stuff like “the way is no way but way” and for millennia people have thought about this, often marvel king at how cool it is. Ages ago they erected a wall which for some reason is one of their signature structures. A wall. M8, I got...

  14. ok consider this: digital currencies, racing through "the web." i say racing bc they are absolutely going fast, sonic levels of speed. if you think about it, sonic is the symbol of crypto par excellence. you're in tokyo. it's 2099. it's raining of course and of course, it's night. this is the permanent climate in 2099 tokyo. neon lights glimmer all around causing the rain to sparkle in a way that is distinctly "cyber" in its overall impression. tall women dressed entirely in black with chunky platform boots and sunglasses (at night, remember) move around radiating contempt for men. they have s

  24. Man, hard to find the right words here. I never did get to meet Salv IRL, but like some others have stated in this thread, it took his passing for me to really recognize his influence on my life; waking up to this news earlier this week hit me pretty hard. I've been reading Douglas Hofstadter's "I Am A Strange Loop" over the last few weeks, and the latter half of the book focuses on the way in which we continue to live on in each other's minds after our death. It was an odd blessing to be reading this book when Phil left us. He obviously left a deep...

  25. Well howdy. A-ok. Me and the family were without power from 8am onward on Monday (2/15). 6-8" snow and sun that day but it was in the teens and wind chill wasn't over 0 deg F until afternoon. Still ok enough to bust out the propane grill and make a hot dinner. Tuesday was technically warmer but overcast and freezing rain covered everything. That day felt more grim. Both nights it was 52 deg F inside. We had plenty of food, beverages, blankets and flashlights but man, it was still kind of surreal and chilly. Thank god I had a shitload of batteries and some random battery radios/tape players. Ki

  26. I’m actually in Naqoyqatsi. I was dating a girl who worked in the sound post department (she told me her job was to download and present Phillip Glass with sounds to inspire him in composing the score) and we were invited to a “feast” of about 100 people where they fed us a 20 course meal by Nobu’s chef (each one paired with a bottle of wine), got us full and drunk, and then filmed us in slow motion to capture faces in “ecstasy”. It was pretty insane. I peed in a urinal next to Philip Glass and thought it was probably too awkward to strike up a conversation. The...
