Funny Autechre Stories

Recommended Posts

Guest fucktechre

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...

 

Heh. I know this is an AphexTwin story, but the first time I listened to Selected Ambient works the cd was skipping the whole time and playing in fast-forward. I only realized that on the 2nd listen. Haha.

Lol at making his 2 years old son listen to autechre: the little gut is gonna have some hell of a musical education.

 

I think I'll be making the same, but I have to procreate first. Btw, do you guys listen to ae while making love? Even for a fan that must be disturbing.

 

 

I bought a pair of studio headphones after WARP25 and was listening to the remastered recording of the set with my eyes closed on my lover's couch when she decided it would be a good idea to... yow. I was sober but I'll tell ya it was better than music + MDMA.

I introduced my girlfriend to Autechre this year, and since she's studying abroad in Europe, she is going to see them live at Simple Things festival in Glasgow tomorrow. Its been my dream to see them live for close to a decade, but they never come to america.

:cattears:

wait thats not a funny story...

Seeing as they abbreviate their name to ae, does that mean that one day they'll be a state of the US.

Sean probably knew that every unit sale would be followed by an urgent request to give it a name. Edited by baph

also, ae's approach to music and music production is diametrically opposed to afx' so naturally sean said no

Yea this is what I thought too, but would've been cool to see what sort of schizophrenic unit they'd have come up with.

Or ae could've agreed to do everything by majority vote and then veto afxs shitty ideas.

Good morning lol!

 

I just got a new Android phone and of course I set every ringtone possible to an Autechre track and well, something funny and awesome just happened. :-)

 

My iShitPhone started it's morning alarm, just making a deep rhythmic vibration on my wooden desk, and then a few moments later my Android phone started playing Treale, from Oversteps. Turns out it sounds fucking amazing even with the vibrate rhythm "off". Ha! At first I was "D'oh!", morning gotta wake up, and a moment later I'm dancing to a smartphone remake of the 'chre. Oh the joy! Damn I love Awe-tech-re. Also added 'Autechre' to my dictionary. A phone auto-completing Autechre, now that's smart.

yeah, give it a few weeks and you're gonna hate Treale

 

I had Inhake2 as a ringtone for about a year and now I can't listen to the intro without thinking my phone is ringing

Hmm... now I've got an idea... hahaha <maniacal laughter> haaHAHA!! I'll set my wakeup alarm to Ventolin! Ahem... I just played 2.5 seconds of it on Youtube and pressed ctrl+w almost immediately. Maybe not Ventolin. Anyways, hmm now I'm curious about the repercussions. I don't imagine I could have a crappier day because I started with a jolt. Maybe it'd put a spring in my step, make me extra cheery. I'm confused. :cry:

Solution: wake with a standard alarm and listen to Ae with breakfast/shower/morning ritual :emotawesomepm9:
