  1. According to the excellent BOCPages: According to Sean Booth, there exists a cover that Boards of Canada made of the Autechre track "Cichli", it still remains unreleased.
  2. First off, the former is perhaps easy to write off as filler (though at times it calls to mind parts of VI Scose Poise with a bit of imagination), a nothing of an interlude, as it lies between fan favourites Perlence and Simmm. You could call it a little segue onto the second side of the first LP (if you have the 2xLP version). Not too too much going on, really. Feels more of a reprise of its' counterpart than the corresponding cut does an extension of it, if you ask me. However, the latter, expanded version found on the limited Quaristice (versions), is a tasty treat which is nice to see the presence of among its cohort although I always find myself wishing it were longer still, or at least if this fleshed out rendition had made it to the album proper. Like some of my other Quari-faves like The Plc and IO (mons), this has some really fun vocal fuckery. And it also has some great oddball sense of of melodic content, too, which call to mind the Glasgow Art School set and other 2005 performances which were said to be instrumental to the nascent Quaristice. Aaaaaaand, the title gives us another reference to this being the ninth album (in Roman numerals).

  4. I brought up this thought in the dedicAtEd thread for Untilted but I think it is an interesting enough idea generally speaking. Here's the alternate order I came up with for their 2005 offering, Fermium is not removed because I dislike the song but because it feels like the odd one out. This is just my first attempt at this and I don't think I have a better sequence than S and R (fucking love this album the way it is as it is), but it is fun to try rejigger things a bit and see if there are some nice ways of changing the sequencing, just for fun 1. LCC 2. The Trees 3. Augmatic Disport 4. Ipacial Section 5. Iera 6. Pro Radii 7. Sublimit Here's what auxien said about this new order/removing Fermium: "hm, not sure about Fermium on its own, feels naked like that. but it is a little bit of an odd one out on the album perhaps, so i see the case there. random thoughts listening to this tracklisting: LCC as opener and Sublimit as closer is necessary, good work on not trying to fuck with that not sure about The Trees as track 2, feels a little too close in shape to LCC Ipacial into Iera is fucking great Iera into Pro Radii works pretty well Pro Radii into Sublimit works pretty well too overall not as offensive as i'd expected trying to tweak what's pretty close to a perfect album. may see about doing an alternate tracklist of my own"

    We've been blessed with not one but TWO great AE releases in a short span of time, with 20 great tracks to consume, analyze, and absorb - but overall, which one is the better of the two?

  10. Generally, we know, many tracks take time to reveal themselves: sometimes they can appear anonymous until one day, when we think we already know everything well, listening distractedly we realize that those are extraordinary ideas (yes, this happens to me when I lower my guard and I don't listen analytically), and we are surprised at how we couldn't understand it from the first moment. Even on exceptionally minimal pieces such as TBM2, all of a sudden the combination of an elementary tempo and a few laconic sounds can turn into suggestions of barely hinted melodies, which are built on subtle relationships that, precisely in their not being manifest, put in motion of interpretative processes. Yet it happens that this does not happen. It is rare, but possible. I am not referring to pieces that leave us indifferent, but to cases in which listening is really tiring. Precisely because it's a rare thing, it's interesting to be analyze. For example, I've never been able to like pce freeze 2.8i or bnc Castl (yes, I know, it's a tribute to a track by Kraftewerk, but it's not enough). Yet, as much as these songs make me hives, are the product of the same minds that combined Sublimit, vekoS, parhelic ririangle, surripere, os veix3 and all the rest. What would you remove from Sum & Rumbla's discography? PS: I suspect I have already opened a similar post time ago, but my memory has long since left me...
  11. There is nothing more amusing than reading negative comments on autechre. A shining example of relativity: the same qualities considered exemplary by those who love them are used as deplorable facts by those who cannot tolerate them. So, here is a thread that collects the common sense of repulsion towards the subject of this forum. I start with this gem just found on the net: It was the worst concert of more than hundred I have been to. The duo started out anonymously half an hours later they were supposed to. Rob Hall had to come out and play twice, I guess, because Autechre were late. While Autechre were performing, it was completely dark in the hall. At first, I thought it was sort of a sound-check or an intro. However, I realized soon that this is the way it should be. What they played was just a bunch of random sounds, with no rhythm and no melodies whatsoever. It felt as if there was a baby sitting somewhere playing with a newly discovered musical gear by pushing buttons and turning knobs without any understanding of what s(he) is doing. It went like that for nearly 45 minutes (even less that each of the 'guest' musicians played). Autechre didn't even bother to say 'hi' or 'bye', let alone 'thank you' to the audience. I feel I was laughed by the duo, the concert agency and the venue, who did not indicate that the performance is going to be done in complete darkness and very short. Very disappointed. I wish I stayed at home. by Tochkinade
  12. I forgot to post this months ago, but I still have two unused download codes which includes sessions 1-4. Give me a shout here or PM me if interested!
  13. Inspired by @NewSchoolScience post in the thread, I got to thinking - what is everyone's favourite Autechre track that's unreleased?

  16. I believe there is already a topic dedicated to graphics: now I haven't found it, so I write this: eventually deleted and incorporated it into the already existing one. Among other things, In this interview Ian Anderson talks about his relationship with S&R and the philosophical stimulus specifically related to ae, and the love for oversteps: https://warp.net/editorial/reasonable-person-an-interview-with-ian-anderson?fbclid=IwAR1sKpJx1eULMucWR_HwklBLSi0yCtnMei2-iRFuYoX9fUfd6hYMnxY0QvQ
  17. Scene 1: we start out in some kind of next-dimensional waiting room with a jumble of objects existing in a state of flux. It’s kind of a paradoxical thing, like chaotic equilibrium. there are platonic solids bouncing into globs on non-newtonian fluids, arcs of plasma jetting about, old People magazines, etc. it is here that the the first ones, the ineffable, antediluvian Great Dyad of rob and sean call their home, their unspoken machinations manifesting as great ripples and rumbles through the medium, lush pads and sick beats, the 2 elements from which all other things spring forth. the aloof, stoned gaze of rob and the piercing chav stare of sean settle on a single planet orbiting rogue paralel suns, somewhere in the intergalactic medium. this is planet known as Planet Gonk. Scene 2: on exoplanet gonk 3a5 129308 there is a club 500 kilometers under the sea. we descend through the hazy atmosphere and the greenish world-ocean is revealed, we descend further, under the waves, to Club Splesh. shit is poppin off here. Mature Audiences Only. Agent Cooper is on the scene “Diane, I’ve just arrived at an establishment of ill-repute— there is a robot with a big like jangly metal dick on stage just getting slapped all over the place. like some giant mech with a big fuckin weird silicon robot dick just floppin it around. like slapping it in a concrete hall, like some crazy flep the dolphin shit happening in the club. in the underwater club.” the scene is mental. Wiley is DJing, Flowdan is MCing. just absolute mayhem people are doing poppers and touching jellyfishes and stuff. a squid makes out with a Dyson space heater. Flep the dolphin does tricks (like flips and shit but also sexual?) for the robot man. a calculator finishes suckin him off. the robot man cums. BLISS Scene 3: okay so now we're listening to the soundtrack to "GANG FIGHT 2999", setting: ‘Techre City it’s like a gigantic icosahedron of a city, all floating above the ocean and shit all black pipes and dirty streets branching out everywhere like fucking crazy the Casual's are encroaching on the Gonk Boy's turf Gonk Boys pullin up using pirated cyberweapons the casuals outnumber gonks, but the gonks are bigger The Gonks have protective fur coats with +2 charm boost the Casuals employ fierce hi frequency sonic weapon emitters the Gonk Boys have powerful backpack woofer blasters the Casuals, in their numbers and ferocity are overwhelming the Gonks but the Gonks won't go down without a fight so the gang war has been raging on OH shit! RIP gonks, you think. but the Gonk Boys are still hanging in actually you thought they died but in one insane sub bass attack they fuckin WIPED out the casuals they unleashed their secret weapon: GATED REVERB GUN cut: we are now 33 years in the future The Gonks and the Casuals unified into one cartel and took over 'Techre city not long ago this planet was ruled by dolphins and mechs Now there is a filthy cabal of genocidal gangsters in control of the polyhedron watch them float over the global ocean, sending down plasma arcs to terrorize the unsuspecting denizens Unleashing vaporized high potency psychedelics and dissociative drugs into the atmosphere the populace is at their will Chairman Elyc9 is a miser. He rose through machiavellian tactics. He now punishes the world that spurned him as a child Uniting the violent underground through mutually beneficial heists and takedowns he quickly was able move up in 'Techre's parliament Spread the message: the dolphins and mechs are not our friends We must cleanse the global ocean of their idiocy Scene 4: Deep down in the ocean Corporal Flep is dreaming up a strategy The resistance has been hit hard But Flep wishes for the days of dancing and having casual sex with robots on the ocean floor to return In an old half dome ruin on the ocean floor, covered in coral and kelp, the bladelores project is being conceived the dolphins on one side, the mechs on the other. they are sharing ideas through bubble ring glyphs how can they restore peace to this shattered world? schematics made of seaweed and stabilized bubbles are created to unify their thoughts they move to the inner sanctum and begin a ritual of blowing bubbles and subtly sending electrical currents through the water slowly an old god starts to rise from the sand at the oceans floor it is a god made of shimmering, rippling mercury at times random pillars seem to form as appendages and then collapse back into the rising columnal giant the monks of the eastre order hit their bells the dolphins and mechs vibrate in ecstasy as the VeKos, the avatar of eastre, arises. … Scene 5: in the laboratory of Turbile Robotics manufacturing ramps up with new speed Everything must be stress tested no piece of squishyware can go un poked every bioluminescent tendril must writhe all cubes must be stomped upon that's what makes a Turbile a Turbile™ The workers dine on shimripls (a type of very gay shrimp) Turbile robotics employees can expect a minimum of 17 shimripls a day they are paid in shimripls, which is a privilege in a world where if you don't gonk hard enough you'll basically just get killed Oh lord what is this? someone just introduced a trojan into Turbile manufacturing's mainframe the technician inspects the terminal "Spl9.ramshooter.b" ? machinery is being repurposed something is being built the plant is creating strange, incomprehensible objects it used to make cubes now the virus has taken control and the organic synthesis machines are making unsound hybrids of silicon and flesh and all of these creations fall down into the the unfathomably deep cistern of rejects, the glos ceramic a cylindrical hole bored deep into the planet, so large it has developed its own ecosystem in the darkness and filth the heaps of AI chips form autonomously organizing beings made of trash and rotting flesh and wires these new beings know nothing other than that the great shute in the sky gives them garbage, their lifeblood so they raise up their appendages in praise revel in the garbage, make love in the garbage, do their taxes in the garbage Scene 6: back in 'techre city Bill Evans plays the piano at a slimey gonk establishment Thom Yorke gets on stage by now he has become a kind of hairy skeleton he makes high pitched wails into a canister, on all fours he has learned the art of bone origami and he is folding himself up into an ever smaller thing eventually he is so small he is not visible, which is part of the art of it, you see yet he still is able to wail Bill Evans dies of many years of cocaine use Scene 7: The aftermath of a mass culling of technicians suspected as double agents for the Dolphin-Mech Alliance Chairman Elyc6 has dealt with the turbile problem, or at least he thinks he did so we looked at the data The truth is, Chairman Elyc9 doesn't really care about purging the planet of dolphins and mechs. the war was a ruse he baited the enemy into summoning eastre, the primeval power at the center of the planet, he wishes to harness its powere planet gonk was once at peace long ago, the dolphins were sucking robot penis and all was well but desperate times call for desperate measures the garbage hybrids congeal into a chain tall enough to reach the ceiling of the great cystern as the liquid god of eastre penetrates the corroded, leaking bottom of the cystern an unholy union is formed The Gonk Casuals must be stopped. Scene 8: we now shift deep under the garbage, into the dark saline sea that lines the deepest trenches under the global ocean this is the primordial soup from whence it all came in a place darker than vantablack, conscious ions flicker with intent before the gonks, before the dolphins, before the casuals and mechs, there was only this place a place of stillness punctuated by rippling chains of actions that had no beginning and no end the creatures of planet gonk arose from this place and it is this place that will bring the planet back to equilibrium Scene 9: the Great Dyad regards the goings on with detached amusement. Sean: M8 this shit is mental. Did you see Thom Yorke do that? fuck me that’s brilliant. Rob: Check out that Dolphin down there, he’s got a laser gun. Sean: (tokes spliff) fookin incredible aye Rob: aye there’s like some kinda war or battle going on innit Sean: lush, hey check out this new patch i’ve been working on ... in a twist of events, the Dolphin-Mechs lose control of the Avatar of Eastre, VeKos, and it takes control of the garbageFleshKin, unifying them into a writhing tentacle of wires and organs emerging from the core of Planet Gonk to strike ‘Techre city from the sky. the icosahedron shatters into a trillion shimmering shards and the city falls into the churning world-ocean. the casualties of the great conflict are immense calculators go instinct. Corporal Flep is valiantly killed in the line of duty when he impales Chairman Elyc6 with his snout (he duct-taped a knife to it). RIP. the Gonk Boys and the Casuals are forgotten. the ocean swallows up all things. there is only wreckage, and the mindless, waving tentacles of eastre protruding from the sea like living monoliths. Who knows what lies in the future for this ruined planet? but for now, all end. And thus concludes the story of Planet Gonk… OR DOES IT?
  18. T ess xi starts off with a chord progression, 16 bars long, shown in the attached image. In bar 1 we have four notes (music harmony people: Eb major seventh chord). For our purpose here, think of those four notes as two intervals played simultaneously, the lower interval (coloured dark grey), and the upper (light grey) interval. From this initial position in bar 1, the movement of those intervals for bars [1..8] is as follows: move the upper interval down 1 row move the lower interval down 1 row move the lower interval down 1 row move the upper interval down 1 row Going from bar 8 to bar 9, the intervals change: their low notes are shifted up two rows (so whereas the intervals were perfect fifths in bars [1..8], they've now become perfect fourths for bars [9..16]). Following that, for bars [9..16] the "intervallic movement" stays the same as in bars [1..8], so again: move the upper interval down 1 row move the lower interval down 1 row move the lower interval down 1 row [!] move the upper interval down 1 row Notice what happens in bar 15 (indicated with [!]): as the lower interval is moved down 1 row, two notes now overlap (in F#) and are fused together. This progression is heard twice (so bars [17..32] are identical to [1..16]). After that, the entire process is repeated but lowered by a semitone etc.
  19. It's time to end this and move on with life. I'm listening to Autechre for the last time this week. I'm open to suggestions on how to handle this. No 'all end' jokes please
  20. (photos via https://www.waste.org/~alone/autechre.html) So I've rediscovered this set and gotten heavy into this weekend. I need all good iterations of it and generally just want to gush over how good it is. As of right now I've got three good copies of this: Toronto (soundboard), Oakland, and Cologne. Links: TORONTO https://forum.watmm.com/files/file/1587-autechre-2001-05-09-canada-torontomp3/ or https://archive.org/details/Autechre2001-05-09 COLOGNE https://forum.watmm.com/files/file/1557-autechre-2001-04-01-germany-cologne-1mp3/ https://forum.watmm.com/files/file/1555-autechre-2001-04-01-germany-cologne-2mp3/ https://forum.watmm.com/files/file/1678-autechre-2001-04-01-germany-cologne-3mp3/ or https://archive.org/details/Autechre2001-04-01 OAKLAND (track 1 on archive isn't AE, just seems to be recorded from before they started, some sort of sludge metal or something, I assume the watmm downloads is the same thing so i didn't link the first part) https://forum.watmm.com/files/file/1687-autechre-2001-05-18-usa-california-oakland-2flac/ https://forum.watmm.com/files/file/1695-autechre-2001-05-18-usa-california-oakland-3flac/ https://forum.watmm.com/files/file/1601-autechre-2001-05-18-usa-california-oakland-4flac/ or https://archive.org/details/Autechre2001-05-18 So basically, this is great stuff. Essentially an album's worth of material...I'm generally terrible at this sort of thing, but I don't recognize anything that got used elsewhere...would be curious if anyone's better ears for that makes some connections to released tunes. The 'tracks' remind me now of NTS in its general structure, flow, attitude, and even sounds...even though obviously we're talking about ~17 years apart, different equipment, etc., AE just gonna be AE it seems. There was this thread (https://forum.watmm.com/topic/85140-autechre-live-in-toronto-9-may-2001-redux) that had some remaster of it, but I wasn't particularly curious in hunting down a copy as the links I tried didn't work. But otherwise, except some praise in a few other threads, this stuff hasn't been fully discussed or appreciated as far as I can tell. I think it deserves some time in the sun. Beyond just chatting about it, what I'm curious about is this: what other good recordings are there of this set? I see a fair amount from very near these dates, but I haven't begun digging through the rest. Obviously we have a soundboard, but there does seem to be a bit of variation between dates, I'm wondering if there's even more music they were doing as part of it that I haven't found yet...anyone else familiar with these already, or want to start digging through? tl;dr good Confield era tour set is good and needs to be heard
