  1. I was at the Bristol and RFH gigs in 2016, standing and seated respectively. Preferred the former gig slightly, though I was just leaning on the railing by the desk staring into darkness, so might as well have been seated. Should certainly be better than Dublin 2014 where it was impossible to get away from talkers
  2. I flew over from Dublin for the Bristol gig and this. I was right in the middle in front of the desk for Bristol, and in the Festival Hall was seated at the right end of the 4th row of the rear stalls. So I got a better immersive stereo experience in Bristol, but it was that bit louder in the Festival Hall, and impossible not to be forcibly drawn into it. Might have been down to the location or my mood but the earlier part of the London gig felt very (musically) dark to me in a way Bristol didn't. Glad to have gotten a double dose of it though, both gigs were incredible. Haswell was great - sloppy and fun, loud and confrontational but I hereby deem anyone who couldn't take it to be wimps and posers! He and Maddocks contextually framed AE in an interesting way I thought. Expected it to be (visually) darker somehow. Was occasionally a bit distracted by the people leaving and wondering what the deal was with them.

    Vinyl Represses!!

    I got a dispatch confirmation 3 days ago but got a mail just now saying they're waiting on stock and shipping will be slightly delayed
  4. The first time I listened to this I was on the edge of sleep throughout but it was playing loud enough to keep me at that level of consciousness for the whole track. Very intense experience... like a combination of the stargate sequence in 2001 and the pic of Bender above

    There's a sample or element of an older track in spaces how V - what is it? Driving me mad
  8. "Record" is often used casually to refer to *a piece of recorded music* i.e. a track. This is like the "vinyls is not a word" nonsense. Does nobody know their Derrida? Anyway is the assumption that the DJ's use of the word "record" indicates that he knows what the format will be but is keeping it secret? "Record" is often used casually to refer to *a piece of recorded music* i.e. a track.

    AE_LIVE

    The plot thickens. It all underlines what a great little visual metaphor the artwork is for the variety of the sets.

    AE_LIVE

    Dunno if this has been mentioned already but I came across this piece by François Morellet which really reminds me of the AE_LIVE artwork... Répartition aléatoire de triangles suivant les chiffres pairs et impairs d'un annuaire de téléphone, 1958 (which seems to translate as "Randomized triangles next to odd and even numbers of a phone directory"). http://a403.idata.over-blog.com/5/05/81/04/13-14/art-et-maths/morellet-_-repartition-aleatoire-des-chiffres-pa-copie-1.jpg And this! "For Morellet, a work of art refers only to itself. His titles are generally sophisticated, show some word play, and describe the "constraints" or "rules" that he used to create them. Like other contemporary artists who use constraints and chance (or the aleatory) in their works (John Cage in music, the Oulipo group in literature), Morellet uses rules and constraints established in advance to guide the creation of his works, and he also allows chance to play a role in some of his compositions" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fran%C3%A7ois_Morellet
