Personally, I would have paid $40 for an hour long album of VI Scose Poise,

 

Ah, that would be wonderful. That track is a strangely intense listen. I love the contrast between the glitchy metallic chaos and the beautiful slow melody. Great stuff. :-)

Like some other people in the main thread for this, I too mostly listen to very repetitious 'minimal' 'ambient' music, whathaveyou, and I find this great. There are definitely subtle changes in frequency and such that make it sound like more of an attended piece. I mean yesterday I was listening to SND's Tenderlove album for like the 30th time, and still noticed some really tiny changes with small reverbs and stuff that I never heard before. Subrange has that right up front on the first listen, and I feel like I'll have much more to listen for in future sittings.

 

Personally, I would have paid $40 for an hour long album of VI Scose Poise, so I know I'm probably in the minority in my love for this piece. I really find it to be quite dynamic. About just as much as Eno's Thursday Afternoon. I mean for longform ambient pieces, this really shows quite a lot of variation. 1000x too much for the silly idea that they're fucking with anybody to hold remotely true.

 

eno's "thursday afternoon" was the first thing i thought of when i started this track.

yeah, at first i was like "that staticky sound seems out of place, hmm, maybe there's a problem with my flac file," but then i listened on the bleep site, and there it is. an interesting placement of sound, for some reason i seems like it should come at the end of the "loop" segment, or whatever it is.

Yeah, but "Thursday Afternoon" has far more of an engaging atmosphere than this track, imho. I find the new Ae one neither relaxing nor involving; just vaguely 'there' and slightly annoying.

I thoroughly enjoy how there is like a perlence scale going on.

 

you have

 

 

Perlence Range 7 - The most expansive perlence

|

\/

Perlence Range 3 - The most comprehensive overview of perlence

|

\/

Perlence

|

\/

Perlence Subrange 3 - A more ambient sounding perlence, focusing on the bass.

|

\/

Perlence losid 2 - A nice beaty ambient piece with a very perlencey feel

|

\/

Perlence subrange 6-36 - A slower, much larger sounding and physically longer perlence.

 

Perlence suns is a sidestep

man, i remember when i bought the video tape of "thursday afternoon" and i actually followed the instructions on the tape and turned my tv on its side to watch it.

I guess you just have to have a really high tolerance for this stuff to begin with. I mean, it's not exactly Eliane Radigue's Trilogie de La Mort, but I understand that to people with a very low threshold, there's no difference between Subrange and other pieces that have vastly fewer and more subtle changes. I'd venture to say there's not much here at all that's completely static. There are variations in pitch, timbre, frequency, voices, volume and background rhythms all throughout it. So for some people it's simply that any and all levels of repetition up to a certain point just doesn't work for them.

if someone wants to pm me this, that'd be cool.

 

I like it quite a bit.

why do people keep saying this? are you really that poor that you can't afford a couple of dollars for a track?

the real challenge will be to listen to the whole ep from start to finish in one sitting. i don't think i could do it to be honest, without losing the tenuous grip i have on my sanity. urgh, disappointment. i can only hope that i'll learn to love this monster without forcing myself to.

this song is excellent. it's unstirring, and walks the line of awkward. you can't be rushed to enjoy it, thats for sure. it reminds me of a drop of water hitting a river and the waves rippling outward. the static is the reverb on a rock... yes indeed

yes, somehow that static rock stops the track from being truly "ambient." can't read while listening to it (just throws off my concentration), but i can write to it, so i'll get some mileage out of the deal.

i'm listening to this track while at work doing variable data between 2 computers... it's actually setting the mood quite nicely... i'm down with this track!
