Funny Autechre Stories

Recommended Posts

My mum said "I wouldn't listen to it, but it's alright as background music" when I was listening to Draft as she visited.

 

edit: she said that before about the Glasgow 2005 liveset, "alright as background music"

A good friend of mine is into the popular stuff so I messed with her a little bit and put gantz graf after some miley. Ironically she twerked harder than she did to begin with.

My sister took me to see Autechre in 2001.

 

*head explodes*

 

 

Hey! You should know that I had to work hard to get to the front rail @ Autechre @ WARP25, and once I actually got to the front I eagerly awaited my chance to slip in when someone lost their nerve to either pee, drink, or whatever. I was intent!! Well, in front of me was a woman who was dangerously enjoying the music. I mean it. I had to take 1.5 steps back so she wouldn't nail me in the jaw with her ecstasy. ++ the waiting line outside was like 50% women, so... perhaps women are less visible because of the general state of sexism in society?

 

PS: Damn her. She did like my æ tat tho. :sleep:

I was at frat party in 1996 and all the "artsy" kids were hanging in the kitchen with a radio playing tunes. I popped in disc 2 from Tri Repetae and some sorority girl walked in and said "this is really good" and started dancing to Second Scepe. Two of her friends joined her and they hung out with us until the end of the disc. Good times.

Re: girls and Autechre

I've know 4 girls I'm my life who are avidly into Ae, and one of the two people who introduced me to Autechre was female.

Essentially hanging out on 2-CT7 while two of my friends who didn't know each other were talking about music. Girl flips through guy's CD collection commenting "I see you like autechre"... Que 15 minute conversation. Some part of my mind held on to this and within a few months I had gone out and acquired all things Ae

It's pretty amazing to discover ae for the first time (if you actually like it). I remember hearing AI etcetera but I have no recollection of hearing Untilted for the first time or so.

 

lol cool dad

I bet you've all heard the "omg your soundcard/record player/youtube is broken" thing? Happened to me once or twice lol.

It's stupid tho when people want to sound cool and just say "is this music??" fuck that.

Some of the comments I've gotten:

 

"Do you still listen to that TV static stuff?"

 

"This is weird, it has no beat" (to xylin room)

 

"You just like listening to the same beat over and over don't you?"

 

"Why don't you just listen to skrillex, that's better than this"

 

"I don't like it, it sounds like Gangsta Paradise" (to Arch Carrier)

 

 

Not sure if any of that is funny though.

It does not, but there is a Gescom track that sounds exactly like Gangsta's Paradise. I'm pretty sure it was called C1.

I'm convinced all of you either have very lame friends or are making up some false reality in which girls don't like good electronic music

Almost every female I knew I'm my 20's listened to apex and boc, and while not everyone I know these days had the same taste it can't be I met all the worlds population of female warp fans

not an Ae story but I once played Hard Normal Daddy in my mum's car because I wanted to hear it turnt up on the car's system. I knew my mum was struggling with it, so I turned to her - just after Rustic Raver ended iirc - and asked her what she thought. she was like "this guy is making chutney out of music" and after my initial lol I realised that's actually pretty fucking accurate! the way Tom built some of his classic tracks, especially on Go Plastic, is totally like making chutney out of music.

I was playing LCC when my dad was in the same room and he gave one of the generic "sounds like the disc is skipping" comments. Oh well...

Always wanted to try 2-CT7. 2C-I is mind-bending. It was like pressing tilde and getting access to the control panel.
