  1. lies! no really, I actually met her. It was at a hootenanny. I was sipping on some moonshine when she perched and gave me the eye. I confidently replied, 'hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot hoot!' Her eyes were still fixed but now enamored. It was then I knew my lonely days were over.
  2. I met the Owl of Minerva once (the actual owl, not the watmm user). It was a real hoot!

  4. Wow thanks man!! Respect. Anyone else feeling this? :D anyone who has enough balls to use vibraslap in a song is a champ. I like this song, especially that bit from 2:41 - 2:45, quality transition. I like the bassline and melodies in the beginning a lot, and felt like the song stays interesting with the variations in the drum programming. Wasn't feeling the dubsteppy bass at the end: it sounds fine mix-wise just not my thing sonically.
  5. remember in the movie Four Lions when they are trying to decide on a target to blow up and Faisal suggests targeting Boots: 'They sell condoms that make you want to bang white girls' lol

  7. Thanks for posting this! I had a little trouble understanding your diagram, but it seems like with the chord voicing, that the notes from one chord to the next move up or down either in semi-tones or whole steps. This seems to abide by the rules of classical harmony. I tried learning more about harmony once by reading Schoenberg's Theory of Harmony. Understood very little of it and did not do any of the exercises, but (if I understood your diagram) this seems to be textbook classical harmony - taking the shortest possible route (voicing-wise) when moving from one chord to the next. Schoenberg also mentions the idea of building chords with fourths and fifths (instead of thirds) as a means of building up to his more radical innovations, which seems to link up with your analysis. I could never get into his music (in spite of several honest attempts) and I also never heard Autechre reference him or any other classical musician pre-Stockhausen, but there are some interesting ideas there. The idea that harmony evolved based on humans discovering the natural harmonic series on their own and gradually making dissonances conventional (adding them into the harmonic vocabulary) is also interesting. Apparently in ancient Greece, there was a time when the only harmony was everyone singing in unison - Dionysian yes, but not all that interesting and definitely not up to par with the splendors of a piece like 'Vose In'.
  8. At the end of the syrobonkus interview, he says that he has never once become depressed because he has these priorities: to love, care, learn, and create (pretty sure those were the four). Such a hero! Both parts of that interview are gold, especially for aspiring synth nerds but also generally.
  9. the music you posted reminded me of the first few Modest Mouse LPs, used to like them a lot when I was younger. As far as post-rock goes, I've often felt like stuff like this was the source: Math-rock-wise you might like this:
  10. I remember seeing a quantitative analysis of which MC had the largest vocabulary, most varied sound in internal and end-line rhymes, and GZA was at the top, right above MF Doom, the super villain.
  11. Nice! I've started with her newest stuff, gonna work my way back. Really digging 'Rare High' on her newest EP, and the title track to her 2018 EP Mood. Her drums slam hard, and she has incredible finesse with synthesis skills.
  12. Damn. I really underestimated how deep your love runs for Autechre's music. Very interesting, a most humane kind of music appreciation. I remember interacting with you about the relation between Autechre and film before, wanted to see if I could pick your brain about some film stuff, kind of unrelated to this thread however, but nevertheless: I have been jonesing to binge a director's filmography (or as much of it as I can procure) and have settled upon David Cronenberg. Was curious of your assessment of his works. Bonus points if you can somehow respond in a way that relates to this thread's topic. I watched A Dangerous Method recently, and liked it even more than my initial viewing a few years ago. Kiera Knightley's performance stands out to me, especially since I thought of her as a fashion model more than an actress. She definitely goes beyond herself in this film, not sure if she let's go of the reins entirely (one thinks of Nicholson in The Shining) or retains some sense of control. Really inspired performance in my eyes. Cronenberg always captivated me for his prescience on cultural issues (especially related to technology and the individual's perception of his/her own body). Really looking forward to checking out The Dead Zone and Cosmopolis again, not to mention A History of Violence. I don't think I will rewatch Videodrome, however, as I have already seen it probably a dozen times. Gotta save it for a few years to try and retain some kind of freshness.
