  1. smooth, peaceful, subtle, lovely music. mixing is actually pretty effective but i think emphasizing certain elements using EQ or panning or whatever could be to your benefit. really neat and interesting samples used throughout the record. drums take the position of an excessively passionate heartbeat of a forest. good stuff.
  2. The promotion for the EP is more intriguing than the music itself.

    "at the end of which you're uncertain whether music has changed or you have" he put it in good words, that's what this whole release is about.
  4. Not a fan of tracks 5, 7, and 8, those tracks are really disappointing and are so lackluster they almost feel like they're playing a joke on us. Otherwise pretty good material. Favorite tracks are 1, 6, and 10, really effective minimalism and it's fun to space out to those.
  5. Sounds good, that's all I really feel so far. I'll need to give it a few more listens, but I'm so far feeling it might be their worst record to date.

    elseq --> eleven + sequor "I follow" --> I follow eleven = 12

    I agree with curvcaten being the worst track, i think the lead synth is my least favorite of all sounds on the whole release, sounds like a cheap Massive synth.

    "spaces how V" might be my favorite track of theirs to date.

    curvcaten sounds like it uses Massive, like at that section at 5:00 or so.
  10. this is an extended version of a section from their 2014-2015 live stuff. go to like 38:00 in grafenhainichen.

    Nagano is really good. Has the most consistent mood of all the sets and progresses brilliantly. Not as mindblowing as some of the others, but it's a wonderful, effortless listen each time.

    the part at 10:40-14:20 on Grafenhainichen is the only set where they do it right. Proper balance between being accessible and mangled/experimental.
  13. 2013 I was first getting into good electronic music. I digged "Eutow" but thought Tri Repetae was unlistenable garbage haha. 2014 I really got into Incunabula, didn't think Autechre could get any better than that. Then, early this year, everything they made totally clicked; the next album from them I had listened to was Chiastic Slide (recommended by Scaruffi) and I loved it instantly. There are very few days this year where I haven't listened to Autechre. I still find Tri Repetae one of their less enjoyable releases, but still like it a lot nonetheless. Undoubtedly my favorite artist.

    I'm a huge sucker for the section that starts at 12:42 in Graf (and whatever it is in the other sets). I think it's a bit cleaner and more realized in the 2015 sets. Beautiful stuff.
