i was calling my mom to come down and bring me a baja blast mountain dew and she couldn't hear me bc autechre "beats(MCX quartent)" was playing too loud. but look, i'm not going to turn DOWN the ae. s

That is a great story.       I had sex to quaristice when it came out. I remember the girl lolled when Perlence came on, and she said "What the fuck is this music?"

I think I've told this one in CHATMM before but not in this thread...

Years ago, I was driving around with a friend. We were pretty fucking stoned and we went to pick up his gf at the time. She was like the definition of basic bitch, sheltered, rich girl. After driving around a while she's being kinda obnoxious to the point where even my buddy is getting a little annoyed with her. I had played Gantz Graf for him earlier that night, and he while not into IDM at all appreciated the chaos of the track, he knew however that basic bitch wouldn't though...

 

After getting annoyed enough with her he turns to me and says "ghOsty, put that one song on again", I put it on and he cranks the car stereo WAY the fuck up. She's instantly freaked out and overwhelmed by the sounds... and starts shouting things like "What the hell guys? What is this?!" "I don't like this, James (my buddy) turn it off!" "You guys, this is scaring me"... She's in fucking TEARS by the end of the track crying and shouting "You guys, this isn't funny staaaaaahhhp" meanwhile we're geeking out in the front and laughing our asses off at her reaction... lol, fuck you Lauren.

now I understand he of autechre, do the beats, make it sound fuck. Rob want to do nice pads, lush, feels good. Sean too angry, say mean thing, make the beats too fuck. Warp releases anyway, they no care. Have opn now, very culture and high of class. Sean even more mad so make too long, no one enjoy. No melody at all. Too chaos. I find, it bc of me. Bc I show up. I say Sean it me you son, blood son. He startle! Afraid. Ask me how to max and msp. I show him. He believe me. Now next I try him to do lush, make beats relax and feel good, melody of emotion. Rob very please, now play with kid more. Sean not know. Drink too much coffee, feel nervous and scare. But he come around soon. Next autechre like old style, no more fuck.

 

Aphex thread is doing my head in a little so thought I'd wander over here and these made me genuinely laugh and smile

This reminds me of my ex gf who I took to an Elseq tour concert. At one point she sat on the ground covering her ears saying "This music is a personal attack on me"

I laughed with the AFX grin, but deep inside a stark realization crept inside me: she's not the one.

I work at a Museum as a Technician and we regularly undertake pest trapping as part of what is known as 'preventative conservation', i.e. keeping tabs on what sort of insects are coming into our stores and liable to 'eat' the collections...e.g., clothes moths, silverfish, furniture/carpet beetles, etc., etc.

We were checking traps back in January and I picked up quite a spicy one, with several large woodlice on it, in numbers above normal.

As is the way, I always have the mp3 player and Popmaster speaker on the trolley...do like to whistle as I work, and all that....Corc was playing.

Knowing this particular Autechre track as well as I do, a tiny bit of inspiration then occurred...which I documented for reasons.

(Trigger warning: possibly urgh / dead insects / not sure if funny)

In about 2001 i came across a bunch of pirated music and got a bunch of the Warp stuff. The files were corrupt and during some tracks it'd randomly cut to a section of a complete other song. LP5 was affected by this quite badly and i remember thinking it was just really avant because i'd heard how experimental they were. I kept listening waiting to get it but thought it was beyond me. It was a few months later when someone played their copy of LP5 that i realised what had been happening. I'd inadvertently given LP5 the mini disc treatment

A coworker and I have been swapping albums. He first gave me Hans-Peter Lindstrom's "Smalhans" (great album), so I gave him EP7. He told me it gave him anxiety, but in a good way.

I'll condense these into one because the LoLs are minute...if at all.

Oncechre:

Back in 2010 I downloaded an Oversteps zip file, prior to (i.e. intending to) spunking £XX.XX on the vinyl version...hadn't been into the 'chre that much since LP5, to be honest, so this new one sounded like a return to form (for me)...proper beats, some tune structure recognisable to my pathetic brain etc., oh my stars. A few months later I then got a copy of the boxset in MVE Notting Hill for £20.

Rushed home and stuck the needle on track 13, thinking "aye, let's start with 'krylon', no fucking about"...gutted. WTF was this? Not what I had listened to previously, obviously. After some searching I discerned it was an Altered Carbon LP...and krylon was actually called 'Sleav'.  Subsequently downloaded The Real Oversteps and um, nah.

The OG AC is still a damn fine release and I don't ever listen to Oversteps much. :boc:

Dostechre:

So I got the chance to see them play in Leeds in 1997, at some University thing called Planet Alice. Was down from Scotland visiting pals, it seemed like a belter of an idea. Beer + Weed x Autechre = ? Never having experienced them live before, I naively expected a greatest hits thus far kind of set with Second Bad Vilbel played around ten times in a row (of course), plus Basscadet and Crystel for encores. Didn't happen haha.

Trestechre:

Cut to 2000 and it's the Lighthouse party in Docklands...I'd bought tickets because of Boards, whilst still in Scotchland, but then moved to Norwich in the intervening months. My lass didnae fancy a night of electronica (who would?) and so a mate from Fife came down for the pairty. T'was a pain in the arse queue to get in (gotta get them minidisc recorders banned lol) and then we're in and BoC's spacebar stuck, heh. They were grand after the Great Unsticking though, worth the admission fee alone (as expected). We then try for some Ae action and it's nul on the banger front again.  WTF guyz. No Windowlicker, no Brace Yourself Jason, no Bad Vilbelz...fuck. Left before the end. Then we catch a bit of the Skam Records DJ set and there's good ol' Eutow blasting out, shaking those aged Trinity Buoy Wharf windows from their petrified putty foundations. Yeah, this was what I wanted, sorry cheers mate. Then me and my pal couldn't be arsed to hang around for Aphex (cos the "let's not advertise timings" thing reaaaallly worked out well) and so we walked for a few hours back to Highbury, which was as awful as it sounds at 3/4/5am in the morning. Happy days.

I listened to Rpeg once before class in high school while still very tired, and somehow I thought I was seeing the song instead of hearing it.

A similar thing happened with Infant Dressing Table by Animal Collective and I thought I was having a conversation with the distorted voice in the beginning and didn't realize that I couldn't understand what it was saying.

      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"
