My attempt to perfectly recreate Aphex Twin's "Xtal" and "Ageispolis"


Recommended Posts

This is super impressive stuff! Really interesting process behind recreating these classic tracks too.

Impressive work! 

It'd be interesting to try the same approach with some of his more abrasive stuff from around the same era, like classics, AB3 etc.

A little project I've been working on in between writing my own stuff.

I've always been fascinated with SAW 85-92 and how it was created, as there's not a whole lot of info about it on the internet.

I thought it would be a fun challenge to try to recreate some of the tracks to maybe find out myself, through trial an error, how some of it was made.

 

 

I'm confused they sound exactly like the originals lol. How on earth is this possible??? Impressive but confused. 😮

lol there are definitely small differences.

i couldn't quite match the pads in either track, and the kick is too quiet in Xtal. 

His versions are glued together much better imo, and also have much dirtier sound from being "mastered" to cassette tape.
