  1. Ok, it is not immediate music, this is an objective fact. Even those in it begin to appreciate an album after some time. Not that it is necessarily difficult, as, on the contrary, contemporary could be, and this is what makes the refusal of many less understandable: there are points of contact with pop, in a very broad sense of course, but it's not academic music. But it still requires attention. The academic musician looks at it with suspicion precisely because the sounds are not those of the cultured music, and then there isn't the traditional aspect that is "the performance of the musician" (the notion that music, above all, is idea, and that the execution is just a way to concretize, is not yet been conquered). On the other hand, the non-academic listener often has a relationship with music that is entirely recreational. He has other interests, and music is a side excipient, and to be such it must be immediate. A friend once told me: "I work 10 hours a day in the ward, when I'm at home I want to disconnect the brain, the stereo must anesthetize me, not give me a new job to decode something that seems to come out of Lovecraft's imagination". So not Autechre in itself, but the role we want to give to the musical fact. And than, Ae can't fit in a category, and to get into it you have to put aside preconceptions and expectations.

    Ted must be a complicated guy
  3. ok, i'm a conservative, but I will not feel at peace with my destiny until I will have at least one soundboard of the Overteps Tour. If in the long wait for the day they can make a new live and publish a new album, the two officers of the absurd wanted to fill this - sublime - missing link, I would find meaning to my days again
  4. no matter how obvious it may be, I've never realized that plus is the sign. I had to see it written I should get banned
  5. https://detunedrecords.bandcamp.com/track/st8818r-a664-mix-by-autechre
  6. ahhhh... that thing to put the ears on a new ae for the first time: the condition of the child at christmas, otherwise no more knowable the preview : https://bleep.com/release/250678-humanoid-st8818r-humanoid
  7. ..if you log into twitch just for the Rochdale Sonic Torment, I think the "social" aspect is very relative. .. well I realize right now that twitch is actually a social lol
  8. same here: since twitch is a pain in the ass with the pass (it never goes well, always weak according to it), when I made the account I had to add numbers and letters to the pass until it was impossible to memorize. So now I had to create a new account with a new email. I mean, they are right to be so demanding, it's not small thing, like a stupid bank account, it's twitch ps: I really hope something is moving... it's therapeutic 💊
  9. I am even more fetishist, I still haven't buy it
  10. lp5 is under sharia
  11. Yes! Amen Lare posted the code on the previous page: Damirat Istant Buy The unusual thing with Damirat is that it captures authentically attention, without the "try to be autechre" effect that generally creates a veil of preconception Even the individual works of the two are awesome: Shin Sung Hoon https://dingndents.bandcamp.com/album/one-atove Changhee Kim https://dingndents.bandcamp.com/album/mptof
  12. ... it's enough that I read NTS, that a prehistoric compulsion drive me to put it up ... it's not an easy thing to manage. 8 hours, I mean
  13. I'm exploring the other Ding / Dents releases: South Korea seems to have an unrivaled concentration of minds: I haven't heard such cool stuff in a long time. This pixcurve by Damirat has no respite, lushness a gogo: https://dingndents.bandcamp.com/album/pixcurve
  14. I don't know if this story can fall into the "funny" category, but it sure has its place in the WTF one. So, nine years ago my mother was affected by a cerebral effusion, which cost her 3 months of coma, 1 year of hospitalization, full left hemiplegia and a cognitive condition very similar to that of a child, but lacking in short memory. Every now and then I play music and ask her to associate emotions. It is an exercise that gives basic answers, such as "happy", "sad", "i don't know". Mainly it is about music connected to her youthful experience, like Pablo Milanes, and sometimes, something that is alien to her but quite immediate (boc). Today I played r catz. At first she was silent, so I helped her, asking for a figurative image, a landscape. She thought about it for a while, and at a certain point, out of nowhere, she said: "Calatrava". How this was possible remains an absolute mystery.
  15. Same here: I was initially thought about the psychedelic genesis of the bats, then the twist: the bats are already included in the world, and I am looking at a gloomy apology to conformism

    For almost a year now there are no signs of life, except for Sophie Remix. Is it time to arm a new PLS season?
  17. Here again all the Mixlr 2020 files, pandemia on air (I think there is something that the previous time I missed). I loaded them for a user, so, already there, I link all here if someone is interested https://we.tl/t-tpyjE9DfDo https://we.tl/t-JPnNY8pbuV https://we.tl/t-56h5x6uq9X https://we.tl/t-m6HolRm1LD https://we.tl/t-goSxYZNXkB https://we.tl/t-1QlbZQzhCU

    yes, this latest mix - the same guy made a first one, a few years ago, which he - or she? - seems not satisfied with - is very accurate, even the decision to move some initial sections of the set, towards the end, has its own reason. being, although it represents a completely arbitrary choice. The onesix mix can be found here: it seems that in the description there is also the download link
  19. In the past they carried out sets for at least a couple of years, transforming them, and many ideas, than, have arrived in albums published further after (Exai, 2013, have inherited a lot from the 2010 tour, and ideas from ae_live fueled elseq and NTS): I think this long break may have really pushed the evolution of the new Live (just think of how the latest dates of Onesix have become enriched with details from the first) and so, from the various segments, new track are born for the next album. Nothing will be lost
  20. I also imagine them revisit the new set, with claustrophobic obsession, to the point to transform it into a physical phenomenon capable of permanently influenced the coordinates of time and space. Beautiful and fatal. More probably, now free from any contractual urgency, they are spending days playing sonic
  21. mhh, yes, but Cathorino is Catherino and limes is limits. Surfing on dyslexia
  22. Today I discover Dolores Cathorino. The microtonal work of her manage to maintain harmonic consistency, with the addition of a sense of proximal imbalance In music theory I have huge limits, it is however true that when I listen to things like Ivan Wyschnadsky's preludes I notice also the limes of the conventional scale
  23. sign plus is evolving into the "getting it" phase. Now that my attention is no longer captured by prominent things, truly subtle details take on a decisive role, and consequently change the perception of what I was used to. By letting things flow without intending to focus, while doing other things, I find myself actually doing nothing and being much more focused than when I was purposefully focused. And, as usual, I wonder how I hadn't noticed the whole mass from the beginning. Yes, I wonder, but it is also true that, this time, they have been seriously careful to hide some things. Submerged suggestions. And so, you have done it again.
