Yeah Quadrange is such a beast. I prefer it to the main Quaristice album.

Quadrange is completely doing it for me. I used to hold them in equal regard but the I'm feelin a little somethin exra from the 'range. It's like the 'tice unleased. (yeah ok it's 901 ones :braindance: )

Just uploaded a slightly reEQ'd file of my Vancouver recording:

https://forum.watmm....april-8th-2008/

 

"Stood in the center of Richard's On Richard's (R.I.P.) with my old Zoom H2 for the whole set. During the quiet breakdown I managed to, inadvertently, attract the attention of Autechre's sound engineer who attempts to sabotage my recording around 23:25, but ends up making it way better imo."

Took a long break from ae and came back in a Quaristice mood hard. Never one of my favorites but it's really doing it for me today, always nice when something just clicks. Bringing me back to a nostalgic time since it's been 10 years now!

I played Altibzz the other day and I got that chilly glow one receives when they are listening to something very special. Pure magic.

 

I think that tune would have to be very high in my favourite all time Autechre tracks, problem is the album (imo) struggles to keep up with that opening monolithic masterstroke.

i did quadrange the other day. masterpiece. that was so insane when quaristice came out. it was such a flood of material. watmm was on fire trying to keep up with it all, especially the short bursts of quadrange eps which have grown to be my fav of the era.

That happened to me with Quadrange last week

I like its more 'serious' tone (thinking Plc ccc) and sense of space

Yeah I was counting the whole package, made my own little best of playlist and there's some really great stuff in here that has aged well for me.

 

I wish a few of my favorite tracks had longer versions, like rale, Simmm, and WNSN . Simmm is so good, it's totally the proto-Oversteps track of the bunch, would easily fit in on that album. That ending is so gorgeous.

There are 'better' Autechre albums but I listen to Quaristice the most.

^ funnily enough I said something very very similar in chat not two days when someone asked me about Beefheart.

 

I was saying Trout Mask Replica is a fucking genius album but it's work, it's challenging every time you listen to it. Then I compared my fave Beefheart, Ice Cream For Crow, to Quaristice.

ha guess i'm gonna do a playlist as well

I have never thought of Simmm as proto-Oversteps, what I normally associate is the beginning of Perlence suns (compare to the beginning of O=0 for instance). For me it gives birth to a lot of Oversteps' ambience that happens behind the algorithmic melodies

 

Also, Quaristice tour set in itself sounds like a transition between untilted to oversteps

Been listening to the whole Quaristice collection today - trying to take a break from the NTS material... 

Perlence Subrange 6-36 totally snagged me. I can't believe I've never fell into it before now, but I was taking a walk and it was cloudy and lightly sprinkling, and it was just... the perfect fit for the reality around me at that time. 

 

The main album hit me hard today too... it went from being the sort of... outlier album that I didn't know when to listen to - to being the perfect fit for cloudy/rainy spring days (in my mind, anyway). 

 

Great stuff... 

=D

Perlence Subrange 6-36 totally snagged me.


The thing with 6-36 is that its waaayyyyyy longer than anything they had ever released before.
Alongside the short 3-4 minute cuts of the main album, it requires a totally different headspace to absorb and sits uncomfortably within
the context of the rest of the album.

BUT since the arrival of elseq / live / NTS we are growing accustomed to longer autechre tracks and it could be that it seems more
accessible.

Quaristice was the first Autechre album I bought. Before that I was very much obsessed with Venetian Snares and only occasionally listened to some AE track on YouTube. I have listened to Quaristice countless times by now, I just love how it flows. Interesting bump
