    Review by RA: https://www.residentadvisor.net/reviews/23512 "As ever with Autechre, if you don't get it, you don't get it. To plenty it's just noise. And amen to that. In this age of constant availability and musical snacking, isn't it nice to have an act on a big stage willing to present something daunting, something that threatens to overwhelm you? Because this is overwhelming music, and it does test your faculties at points—but it is also music of pleasure, just as much as anything in Autechre's catalogue. It isn't austere, it isn't clever-clever, it isn't something that requires masters degrees to understand—it just needs you to give in to it. And maybe that's why, more than anyone of their generation, Autechre still feel relevant. Their music makes sense in the era of Objekt, NON Worldwide, PAN and UIQ. It's radical, but still aimed at the brain and body with that pure rave intensity, humour and passion, and with that improvisational wildness and freedom always either latent or—as here—out in the open. It is out of its mind and all the better for it." All of this is coolio but wtf with the rating? 4,1/5... please stop...

    I see the same malice behind the live 08: "here's your cock-set, have fun now". The amount of dates of the 014/15 set, however, makes me think of a solution that works as a surrogate for a self-generating process. How many times have we theorized (with a vision ascribable to dystopia) of Autechre2.0, the definitive processor that will create infinite variations so that the music is new with each listening? Well, today we have 28 versions of AE_LIVE, for a total of over 28 hours. It is clearly impossible to distinguish one date from another, all different yet similar, spread over a duration of more than a whole day. In other words, it will no longer make sense to have a "favorite date", randomly choose from the 28, as if they were a single date, each time generated as if it were the first... very interesting. shows Eno's influence on their work too. Didn't Eno release an app that does what you are describing: same 'piece' of music, but different variation each time you listen?IIRC the app Eno designed wasn't different variations with every listen but rather a constant flow of generative music. I gave Miami and Montreal a shot, both are awesome. The system they designed seem to never reach its limits but I'm very curious about how Ae next era will sound like! It will sound like Max/ MSP... Yeah but Max/MSP sounds like what they want it to sound. Exai, AE_LIVE, Elseq and NTS share strong sound design similarities because they were made using the same Max environment. I'd like to hear what their next software sound production environment will sound like ! IIRC they said in an interview that they started to feel their actual system was getting a bit old. it was an irony man, paece out! Me too, I am really interesing what will be their new approach? Or maybe there won't be any (All end anyone?!):)

    Holly Roberta&Susanna! What a deluge! I've begun with streaming of Miami and it's very different from the previous batch. First 30 mins sounds similar, but the rest is just out_there_fuckery that I haven't heard before. 2019 starts with 19h of new AE?! Coincidence? Hope to get 20h of OneSix in 2020...

    Achtung! New AE_Live shows available in the ae store!!
  11. Sorry to post twice but the text above, is the best NTS-related piece by far. Highly recommended!
  12. Great read: https://fivedials.com/reportage/an-album-can-last-a-day-sam-byers/
  13. I love it as well. The end of Nofour with its dying sound perfectly ties the album.
  14. The Wire has finally weighted on NTS and it's their's no 8 in the 2018 Rewind! Autechre NTS Sessions 1–4 Warp 8xCD/DL/12xLP Autechre’s NTS Sessions 1–4 is an eight hour opus of endurance. Its 36 tracks are cut from recordings performed at London’s NTS Radio throughout April 2018, which came in four heroic instalments that were then played on loop over the week before broadcasting the next one. The result is overwhelming, with tracks with titles like “elyc9 7hres”, “violvoic” and “e0” running past the ten and 15 minute mark, while incrementally growing longer to conclude on the epic “all end”. The latter’s fine and textured ambience runs on a shimmering swell, clocking in just shy of an hour. The process behind the production on NTS Sessions is unclear, with Rob Brown and Sean Booth’s developing, career-long collaboration with software being a distinct but unsubstantiated possibility. Without it, the mind boggles to imagine the mindfulness and stamina to maintain this meditative trance of maximal composition. As vast as this recording is, it’s even more astounding to imagine its position within Autechre’s 30-plus year career. Producing countless live and studio albums and EPs, they’ve rarely deviated from releasing via Warp, with its members only occasionally working outside the project. In light of that, the release is less an exercise in excess and redundancy (where at a certain point an artist can pretty much do what they want) and more an exploration of constancy without repetition. Perhaps it makes sense to zoom out from the microscopic dissection of sound of NTS Sessions to the build and resolution of an entire oeuvre that spans decades. The build and resolve of this particular episode starts at the more beat-driven probe of Session 1 and ends on the transcendental atmospherics of Session 4. Where that sits in relation to 1994’s Anti EP, for example, is as the logical conclusion of an ever shifting post-human project that subverts and evades the authoritarian limitations of language. NTS Sessions is yet another lofty signpost on that journey to escape. Steph Kretowicz
  15. thanks guys! what is this tape Sean is shining light on?

    Icari is such a nice jam. I think the boys were just having fun and tweaking and adding ideas in real time. If flows perfectly and it could go on for much longer. The arrival of the ending synth patch seems a bit rushed, as if they realized that the time was running out. But to be fair, the pad sounds regal. It's perfectly executed in the best AE style.
  18. A Boomcat review: https://boomkat.com/products/nts-sessions "Call it an album, call it a radio show, call it a massive excuse to lock yourself away for 8 hours, either way ‘NTS Sessions’ is a vital dispatch from the North Face models, [...] In other words, it’s fuucking mint."
  19. well, well... "Whereas Aphex Twin has said all the things he had ever have to say nearly two decades ago, Autechre seems to stay in touch with the evolution of [their] sound. On the other hand, even as they push the envelope outside defined boundaries, Autechre appear to water only the plants grown in their very own garden, rarely harvesting a new technique which some modern electronic musicians develop and embrace.

  20. Looks like an awsome set! Really anxious to hear a bootleg! Watammers do your duties and share this epicness with the rest of the world! My body is ready!
  21. So just to be clear. Sharing opinions in the form of writing is ok, but sharing while talking on yt is not?!?
  22. Not sure if this qualifies as a review, but: Would you spend £120 on a box set comprising eight hours of whirrs, boinks and clangs that sound like a robot trying to psyche you out? http://mixmag.net/feature/weird-times-in-the-world-means-we-need-more-oddball-music/
