  1. But you believe that the two camps exist? I've never heard omnivorous music in that sense that is as good as specialised music (at least in some small sense) as far as I know - I genuinely want to find music that makes me think differently, I don't want there to be a boundary either nah i think they don't really but a lot of bands seem to and the press are lazy so it perpetuates
  2. Yeah, I was spending some time on writing the questions, making it compact, but there comes a moment where i just say "fuck it" and press send. I'll try to rewrite it to it's core: 1-bis) Can you name the biggest notable differences in crowd mentalities at Autechre gigs between Europe, Asia, and America? 3 where Renaat R&S told us we should definitely rethink about releasing some tracks, after seeing us live, on our post Incunabula / Basscadet timed tour. What did he mean by that? Did he mean, "Release some tracks on R&S, pretty please?" Or did he mean "If I were you I would think twice before ever releasing this stuff I just heard" ? nah it went more like this renaat: 'i really enjoyed your latest EP, it's amazing' me: 'oh thanks, that's an honour' renaat: 'what was that track in your live set? i would love to release that!' me: 'oh, er, that's on the latest EP' renaat: 'oh god i'm sorry you caught me out there, oh how embarrassing' me: 'yeah, lol'
  3. most of it, some of it's g2 stuff which we'd still have to build, but yeah i reckon there's nothing too intensive there really er yeah i guess, we always did those kind of tracks for EPs and live sets anyway, at least it felt that way, maybe slightly less slamming on the EPs i think what it is, we like listening to certain kinds of stuff at home and on headphones, and we like hearing more slamming things when we're out in a club, and we do what feels right in each context
  4. 1) not heard much apart from the stuff on skam, which is p good 2) that sounds fairly legit but i can't rem, prob them PRS forms again 3) your spider is now called Itsy tbh i find these kind of axes a bit artificial, arbitrary at best. it's a shame there are these two predominant camps given how flexible it all actually is
  5. is there a vocal sample in that? Yeah and it's a mindfuck oh god yeah i rem now ahaha not telling
  6. varies a lot, some albums it's about half and some it's like 10% the last couple have been more like 5% actually, maybe less actually- including things like sketches and test files it's <1%, but you wouldn't wanna sit thru all them unless you were mental
  7. yeah we can't release everything, even 2.5 hours is too much for busy people there are loads of people that would defo listen to a 10 hour release, let alone a 2.5er. helps, me personally, focus on my werk. could be themed into chunks for those with shorter attention spans. [thank you internet] long and short of it is....seems like the crowd here can't get enough Ae ;) as this is supposed to be questions only, one more if i'm not too late... sine, square, saw or random? thanks again for taking all the time you guys have to wade through and answer as many Qs as you have. oh wow that's actually quite tough prob square yeah we gave em that before basscadet came out, we did the swap at the same time roughly i dunno why warp didn't release it (lightweights)
  8. i like john berkey a lot, i like how he manages to convey scale but using really vague strokes, think he's a bit of a genius actually and i really like syd mead and jean giraud as well yeah we make tracks for ourselves all the time but sometimes i expressly make say a hip hop track or a straight 4/4 techno track, but i usually get bored before i finish them i dunno how other people get anything like that finished tbh
  9. 1) well thats a lot of questions for one question yeah it varies tons, every city is different, and countries have their own tendencies too 2) really good so far, they get it no matter how hard or weird we make it 3) yeah once i re-eq'd derrick may's dj set from a mixer which he was running thru but was like at the other end of a venue behind a curtain i was hyping up all his snare rushes with eq sweeps and stuff, was p good lulz 4) yeah but i answered like 10 times as many q's - TAKE YOUR PICK
  10. :wang: :wang: pls yeah cos revealing hidden messages is a brilliant idea :D
  11. we might but noel never does, all he ever does is roll off a tiny bit of bass (we have smaller speakers than him) more from releases but touring doesn't make a lot of money for us cos of all the expenses, we like it like that tho one off gigs are a lot more profitable than both nah they're both really well tuned
  12. nah not at all i mean we had no money at all to make it, it was all favours, and when we got the original edit we wanted to tighten it up a bit so me and rob went in with chris and kim (the editor) to see if we could make it seem more 'in time' and what we got was pretty good considering i know chris was never quite into the alien bits and later he did his own edit in final cut to try to remove the bits he didn't like but i always preferred the original myself, i like how cheap it is
  13. i think we already did this but i like this q so will answer again throwing stones onto an icy lake is really lush and the sound of an approaching train sometimes sends shockwaves up the tracks which you can hear way before the train arrives, i always liked that that fact about birch is amazing, so the harmonies are built into the structure of the wood already. mind = blown yeah i mean we stumble upon things a lot i think the thing is to stay open minded so when things like that occur you actually notice them, as opposed to rigidly finishing the task you started (this is the main reason i prefer max to sc)
  14. with electronic music there are always going to be overlapping generations of producers, it doesn't have the same kind of physical limits that being a rock star seems to as far as knowing what a younger audience thinks of early rave music, i have no idea house has been quite trendy over the last cpl of years, and i'd like to think that's cos some of the good stuff has enduring aesthetic qualities (but then i hear someone play 'ride on time' in a club and i realise i might be a bit wrong about that)
  15. no and anyone who thinks that's a viable option doesn't really know what mastering means we do the mix ourselves (mixing != mastering)
  16. >canon discontinuity stopped reading there i dunno what you think marks us out tbh, there were tons of amazing electro producers before us
  17. wasn't this at the music box in manchester. it was released in japan only, as a bonus track for confield. nah it was at toolshed
  18. wasn't this at the music box in manchester. it was released in japan only, as a bonus track for confield. lel i saw that
  19. yeah i love his stuff, he's got mad talent imo i did grab ruckverrzauberung4 for cheap when it went out, great album yeah. Voigt is hard to follow with all of his releases but fascinating musician (mixing old german instruments/sounds in a techno context & his "loops" skills). i have not listened to that Stone Roses tune for age, but yeah its a top one. Speaking about manchester & electro during the 80s interesting story coz its kinda "history" in indie rock circles now, there are actual movies about it. You're credited in the Prebuild LP, were that you who convinced 808 state to put out those old tracks ? yeah i was bugging graham to see if there was anything unreleased and i ended up with a cd of tracks, and then like 3 days later i was getting emails off richard about it
  20. i dunno i mean that word complex has a lot of diff meanings and contexts longest to produce - i dunno that either, i don't keep track properly at all
  21. i really like 1000 fragments, less into his annoying high pitched tone stuff tbh i think a lot of his stuff (conceptually) had already been handled better by the hafler trio Ace, you're right - When I googled 'Hans-Joachim Roedelius; Über berg und tal' it point to this which credits the track: u sure, i can't play this for some reason, but my copy sounds nothing like the track in the OP cool u found it - its incredible - theres also a track on the album 'auf leisen sohlen' by the same name, lol patchy bastard. i have two versions of selbstportrait with the same listing and different tracks as well i thought Germans were noted for being thorough? ah, he's austrian. I was just gonna say, this seems like something Wolfgang Voigt would do...reminds me of the CD and LP differences of Konigsforst. I have been meaning to pick up all the Selbstportrait records for a while now...actually, funnily enough, I think it was that mystery track that sparked my interest in Roedelius. When I sent Leafs that track years ago, he speculated that it could have been Roedelius, but the guy has done so much stuff it seemed like we'd never find it. Then he told me a bit later about the Selbstportrait stuff and how I'd love it, and here I am again now. Going to buy all this stuff at once when I get some cash again, if I can afford it. Anyway, speaking of Voigt, are you guys into him? He's one of the few other musicians out there who, in my opinion, are just so consumed in their own musical universe to really be compared to anyone else, much like AE. I recently scored a copy of his super-rare Ruckverzauberung 4 album, directly from him too, and it's been blowing my mind lately... yeah i love his stuff, he's got mad talent imo After posting that I realized you remixed Mike Ink back in the day, so DERP! Though I guess that was a long time ago now, and lord knows a couple years of time passing for Wolfgang is like a couple universes for the rest of us. So it's cool to know you still like him now! One of the other artists I think falls into that category is Pub - do you guys know his stuff at all? He's been self-releasing most of his work via Ampoule Records in Scotland for years, and he really doesn't sound like anyone else out there. Somehow completely organic and alive, yet electronic all the same: [youtubehd]B_YqFK9f4jM[/youtubehd] [youtubehd]v2mW35D_tfw[/youtubehd] yeah track 2 @ 0'30'' that step filter , reminds me of basic channel, tbh despite the many ppl on the electronic dub thing, i thing there's always more room for ppl, its a delicate style, so even the most subtle of personalities can render a greater difference. yeah fully
  22. 1. yeah course it's intentional :D tbh we usually think of what we do as a branch/offshoot of hip hop. we could in theory, but i dunno how straightforward it would be, being us 2. yeah that's fair 3. not for the sake of it 4. they all have a mixture, i dunno if i cba reading it all just to post that soz 5. no that was a live jam done at graham's toolshed night at band on the wall, no recording exists afaik. re:untitled i was moving house and things were a bit hectic Ace, you're right - When I googled 'Hans-Joachim Roedelius; Über berg und tal' it point to this which credits the track: u sure, i can't play this for some reason, but my copy sounds nothing like the track in the OP cool u found it - its incredible - theres also a track on the album 'auf leisen sohlen' by the same name, lol patchy bastard. i have two versions of selbstportrait with the same listing and different tracks as well i thought Germans were noted for being thorough? ah, he's austrian.

Somehow completely organic and alive, yet electronic all the same: [youtubehd]B_YqFK9f4jM[/youtubehd] [youtubehd]v2mW35D_tfw[/youtubehd] not heard this guy b4, sounds p good, i'll get onto it cheers nice metallic delays in the first one if wigs are available it would have to be fools gold really i watched made of stone last night. have you seen it and what are your thoughts if so? brown is autotuned to fuck in the rehearsal bits and the H Park is overdubbed beyond recognition! still a good watch for an old fan but cringey as fuck! maybe obvious but did you (like me) find 808 state through the manchester thing? joy division, mondays, martin hammet, etc. not seen it i'm not a stone roses fan really but i do like fools gold cos of how they flipped that break edit: sorry i missed the last bit nah first time i heard 808 state was when stu allan played flow coma, we were into dance music for years before that that madchester thing fucked a lot of things up tbh cos according to rock historians dance music started in manchester with the haccy, but it's not true at all, there was a huge black music scene round here in the early 80s, my secondary school got so sick of us breakdancing in the toilets they decided to open up the assembly hall for it every lunchtime cheers... sorry, i had added another sneaky edit... you dig andy stott at all? he seems to almost be at the opposite spectrum to what you do in terms of sound iykwim. some of it's alright but it sounds a bit easy to me
  23. Ace, you're right - When I googled 'Hans-Joachim Roedelius; Über berg und tal' it point to this which credits the track: u sure, i can't play this for some reason, but my copy sounds nothing like the track in the OP cool u found it - its incredible - theres also a track on the album 'auf leisen sohlen' by the same name, lol patchy bastard. i have two versions of selbstportrait with the same listing and different tracks as well i thought Germans were noted for being thorough? ah, he's austrian.
