that was the start of my funny storaey.

 

i like maynards "WTF" comment when the other dude finished talking about AE's vid!

 

danny carey, and yeah he waffled on quite a bit, and too bad he said the clip was made by chris cunningham, oh well...

I was in class yesterday and the professor was telling us about these assignments we have to do where we review experimental design/graphic kinda work and he's going through a list of things we should check out and I thought I was hallucinating (it's a 4 hour class) when I saw the GANTZ GRAF video on the REQUIRED VIEWING list!!?? He spelled it wrong (ganz graf :facepalm:), but still.. awesome! I was going crazy on the inside! Also says we're going to view it in class... can't wait for that.

holy fuck where do you go to school?

Probably not funny to anyone but me, but anyway;

I was playing Arch Carrier (Atolyth Remix) and my sister was like "O.o....are you making those weird noises?" I responded yes (it's easier than trying to explain that it was music to my sister - a paramore fan). A bit later she realised it wasn't me and proceeded to tell me, In a very matter-of-fact way (the way only 13 year old girls can) that "the ting doesn't fit, and is out of time. And it isn't really music. Someone obviously got a machine and bashed some keys. It doesn't even have guitar or piano or singing"

 

 

Olol.

i showed a couple of my mates some autechre a couple of nights ago, we were having joints in my room and watching youtube shit, then finally when no one could think of anything i was like..

 

how about we start off with windowlicker, that'll make them laugh, then i can move on to autechre, but i wont dive straight into gantz graf, i'll put on the dropp video that's on youtube, that's pretty cool..

 

and sure enough one of them was like, that was pretty sick, and the other was like "cusi cusi", and so then i was like, now you gotta watch this video, and bam, busted on gantz graf and they watched the whole thing, and again, that was pretty cool, cusi cusi...

 

there's no funny story, i was just pumped to be able to share.

i was driving to work on thursday and saw one of my coworkers about a half mile away from work. i decided to see if she wanted a ride and she said yeah. we talked a little on the way to work with the plc ccc playing in the background. she stopped mid sentence and was like "this sounds really familiar?" i was like "really? where do you think you heard this from?" then she asked what it was, i answered her and she was like "AUTECHRE... THAT'S WHAT IT IS! my boyfriend listens to them!" then i was like... "well your BF has good taste!"... she seemed to talk to me more since that day... i probably went up a few notches in her "cool-o-meter" or something.

My most recent funny autechre story:

I looked in music library and just scrolled through, reading the track titles. Then I just started cracking up laughing for like 2 minutes. I mean wtf autechre.

If you think that's funny, you should try listening to those tracks. I mean, like, wtf?

 

(I mean that seriously, without meaning to disparage the music. I love autechre. But sometimes you gotta laugh at it)

Relatively sarcastic obnoxious friend was at my house the other week.

When he walked in I was playing IO.

(him) "Jasper... Jasper this is actually terrible. Like... Actually... This is just bad."

(me) "Man listen to the subtleties, what a fucking atmosphere, eh?"

(him) "They obviously had no idea what they were doing. I can tell. They're horrible musicians."

(same friend who won't listen to My Bloody Valentine because "they don't sing, they just go meeeehhhehehhh")

 

(lame story i know - thats pretty much the extent of my Autechre experiences with others)

funny how it's only three years ago but still, this doesn't happened anymore, does it?

Now you only get "This is shit, is it dubstep?" vs "Hey, if you stuff like this, you're gonna LOVE that dubstep cd I just bought, here, I'll send you his discography!" - kinda longing for the good ol' days of mere ignorance.

I have two anecdotes of oral discussion of Autechre.

 

Years ago I've been discussing music with my co-worker after finding out that he's familiar with Aphex twins and stuff. I would go like, do you know Autechre, and he's got no clue, i go, you must check Autechre, it's wikkid, A-U-T-E-C-H-R-E, man. I'll start describing it, he jots it down, and then asks me if i knew about that video he saw, with industrial shit object moving and morphing, and i'm like, Gantz Graf? Where shit moves and morphs like that (pantomiming video)? He's like yeah totally dude, and i go like, this is Autechre, man! He jots it down. Next day he tells me how he asked his girlfriend about Autechre and she replied "have you forgotten that we've already listened to Autechre together, they're the pioneers of IDM, you stupid".

 

Then there was this guy who was selling off his entire vinyl collection because of existential porblems. I'm not interested. He appeals to me by PM, telling his life story and how he owes me shits in music listening. He wanted to give me his Oversteps copy in honour, which was the latest release back then. I go like, nah man, i don't like this record all that much and have no record player.

My grandad borrowed my car and I had draft playing pretty loud. He didn't know how to turn it off so he listened to most of the album before parking up again.

 

I asked him what he thought and he said he thought maybe the CD was broken but he could tell it was music.

one time I was introduced to this friend-of-a-friend, a total milf with raven-black hair, curvaceous hips and ample bosom, who had good taste in electronic musics. we were hitting it off talking about music and stuff, and I said I was into the 'chre and she was like "oh I love him!". so like any self-respecting watmmer I turned stone-faced and said "there's two of them, you fucking casual" and I didn't get laid that night.

I turned up all the lower frequencies on my equalizer and listened to bladelores then my headphones made snap crackle and pop sounds and went silent until I turned it off. It sounded so Autechre I had to do it a couple more times.

Nice! I'm mildly embarrassed about this thread, but glad it's still producing quality posts.

Can you record the output and post it?

On my recent trip to Santa Cruz, Bolivia. Me and my girlfriend decided to get tattoos done. Browsing through their catalogues of usual motives of skulls etc. I wondered. And then remembered wouldn't it be cool to have the ae logo. Decided. Whilst getting it done I got the tattooist (who also dug electronic music) to hook my mp3 up to his laptop so I could listen to Autechre whilst gettin my tattoo done!

Halfwat through someone changed it to Pixies, but thats all good. He liked Autechre and I ended up transferring all me muzak to his laptop. I truly felt like a missionart spreading the word, and was happy in the knowledge that one day soon he would be getting his Autechre breakthrough, and all because of me hehe

Welcome to the Autechre tattoo club

 

Thank you six. Let's see yours then
