Let's talk about Cichlisuite


Recommended Posts

Was listening to this at work today and thought "Fuck me this is brilliant", there isn't a weak track on this release. Pencha is amazing especially.

 

Also, the case says 'Mechanically Reclaimed by Autechre', I'm curious, does this mean the tracks are remixes of earlier stuff? Specifically Tilapia which has that Cichli sounding synth.

 

Also, talk about how wicked this EP is.

the album is a quasi remix album based on the track Chichli from Chiastic Slide.

although to my ears it sounds like totally new work just like most of Ae's remix work.

nah. mechanically reclaimed is only for the cd version, i think. it means the two eps (.1 and .2) are combined.

 

i'm sure you're confusing EP7 here?

Such is the brilliance of AE.

Ah I see. Actually I wondered where those other covers were from. Nice one.

Sadly, I am without this release. Can never find it. But Tilapia from the Vancouver download is amazing. How different is the album version? Cause all I recognize from Cichli is the synth sound. Thats some remixing job if its just Cichli remixed. But i once read in an interview that Autechre's early remixes were so cut up that the original song was unrecognizalbe. Rob or maybe Sean said "and thats when we decided just to make our own music, because we just stopped using the other songs". Or something to that fashion.

yes, i think they're all quasi-remixes of cichli... something about being from the same basic ideas or whatever (and somethings like the ending of 'tilapia' being obviously more cichli-like).

 

i was reading a book a while ago on fish and noticed that all of the track names on this are fish-related too... which was nice.

its says "mechanically reclaimed" on the 12" pair of records, not just the cd, so yes, i think it is saying that they are remixes, or at least sourced from other stuff.

tilapia is a brilliant track.

plus the artwork is really beautiful i think.

Yeah, Cichlid is a type of family of fish, hence the theme

I think when they said that they meant early stuff as in pre-Autechre stuff. I could be wrong, but if you listen to Lego Feet it kinda indicates that sort of sound in places.

Fucking awesome this EP is. On the whole I think Ae did (does?) some of their best work in short form - Garbage, Anvil Vapre, the 1st Peel Session & Envane are personal favorites too. It's also interesting how well these EPs "connect the dots" between their full-length albums.

very true... autechre used to do a release year with an album, and a double 12" ep, and the 2 formats always related to each other. like say, tri repetae/anvil vapre, chiastic slide/envane, lp5/cichli suite.....

they dont seem to do this style of release anymore which is a shame.

i love these tracks.. i went to outback for a company dinner and had tilapia (which was positively delicious, i'd thought it would be bland) and then drove home listening to cichlisuite.. the climax in tilapia gets me every time.

      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"

      Bandcamp Friday, here we go. First artist to get remixed by Ae twice. The last one was brilliant.
