Autechre-Quaristice

Autechre and TLC come together (okay it's just me having a larf) to present you The Tlc - No Scrubs (Quaristice Mix). Track length? 3:33.333

Just a fun mashup of an R&B classic with bits of Altibzz, The Plc, and PlyPhon. Very loosely done. Just for fun. Please don't take this too seriously.

Be nice if they put Quadrange up on Spotify, save me digging around for it. I think it’s time to fire up the old Sony HD Walkman as I know it lurks about on there, (as does my Soundcloud dump compilation) and various other CD treats like Bochum Welt. Hail The Wolfman! hail The Walkman! (hoof to the roof, claw to the floor)

I think this album finally clicked with me just now

Blyz Castl kicks so much ass also

 

I definitely want to listen to the rest of the era today (including that replicated live set). I think this will be pretty fun!

13 years to click with Quaristice? This gives me hope that Chiastic Slide might click with me one day ...perhaps in another decade or so.

I had that fairly recently with Quaristice (I say that, it was before the first lockdown so probably like 3 years ago...time goes fast with kids). Always liked it but one day out walking and listening it was like I'd never heard it before. The autechre effect.

Fol4 is my favorite thing they have ever done and it's completely unmatched by anything else. No such a track exist that would be even remotely close to it. Also Perlence Suns ❤️

 

fuck yeah Fol4

i always thought there's a heavy Throbbing Gristle influence in that one, wouldn't sound out of place on some of the late period TG albums

The rhythmic rustling around eight minutes into The PlcCpC is so fucking masterful. Having a relisten to Quaristice (versions) to christen my new last.fm account/new computer. The springy bell sound starting around 4:13 in Perlence range 3. Fuuuuuuuuuck. This shit gets better and better and it's already 14 years old and remains leaps and bounds ahead of a lot of other things. I am grateful Tankakern gets the "triple feature" treatment appearing on the main LP, the dubs (Tankraken), and Quadrange (Tkakanren).

How physical some of these sounds are for something so digitally produced is in itself a mindfuck like no other. This applies to a lot more than just fol4, but really, who among us is not grateful for every second of the almost 12 minutes of fol4? Sweet Jesus, that's a gourmet feast for the ears if there ever was one.

At least three small missed opportunities, though, which only an Ae obsessive could possibly have. The first of which is that both Phlyopn and plyPhon are around 2:40 it could have been nice to expand somewhat more. Secondly, I would have loved an alternate take or expansion of Simmm. Many of these sounds are found elsewhere so those are both kinda moot. Lastly, I wish SonDEre-ix was at least twice as long, it feels like a real underdog. Besides that my only gripe is Altichyre was unneeded, even if it was rather pretty.

[Damn, I wish I had a hard copy. Can I buy FLAC/WAV of it from Sean and Rob the way I can the main album on the Ae Store somehow? I would absolutely pay twice the price of Quaristice or more if it came with lossless files of these extended versions]

Quaristice et al is partly/mostly/all hardware, right? i know it logically doesn't exactly make sense but often i find more 'raw' sounding hardware-created music can feel more physical. this doesn't seem to track when the recordings are hella tweaked in post-production (see: Untilted) but i always chalked up the more visceral feelings of Quaristice to the mostly-raw mostly-hardware recordings (rightly or wrongly)

yeah, plenty of interviews state that quaristice was at first an attempt to record their hardware live jams from the untilted tour. Those turned into their own thing.  Oddly, Untilted has a much more 'hardware' vibe to me. It feels like a lot of the sounds are more static, vs fluid/fluctuating sounds on Quaristice.

imo the physicalness of the quari family is probably mostly related to monomachine. i always like that about mnonomachine! ...still miss mine sometimes

World needs more physical modeling/granular synthesis hardware imo

I think a lot of Quari is *triggered* hardware, hence all the MPC program files, Nord sysex, etc. we got from this era

Yes, this is what I mean by physical; many sounds seem like recordings, possibly, in many cases, tweaked sample/samples of nonsynthesized origin/origins and/or some absolutely next level physical modeling

there's a lot of this on here, possibly more than we've ever realized. almost certainly contributes to that 'physical' sound, having those contrasting textures all existing together in the same space (and in the case of the samples/recordings, each one can represent a collection of textures)

I love these tracks so much. All hail the tan kraken
