What's your opinion on the influence that the Manchinedrum and Monomachine have had in Autechre's musical direction?

I can help being a little biased in this matter but I listen to the recent live sets a lot more than any album these days in fact they never come off my mp3 player.

Saying that I was never a big Autechre fan until a few years ago but I appreciate their past work a lot more now.


not read any of this thread but i can honestly say that Quaristice reaks of Machinedrum twiddling - a number of the timbres and tones that appear in passages throughout the album have that distinctive elektron sound. I own one - and definitely hear the same shit going on between machine and album, particularly the delay and bit reduction on parts.

I wish they said something about IO


man that scale fucks with me. asked a guitar playing friend if he could figure it out, he said he wanted to throw up

edit why is the right hand ass pixellated



It isn't really a scale. It starts be descending the Eb Locrian and then when it gets to Gb it rises in whole steps and is harmonized with a major third below it. Kind of hard to explain without notations. Plus, there is another harmony going on underneath it which is easier to hear in the live version.

Resurrecting an old thread because why not.

 

They mention Autechre sort of sparking some orders for the MD and MM, as well as a couple of other things, at just about 30 minutes in:

And because of this I'll post this explanation though it's not Elektron specific:

Shit I think they took the video down. It was from ADSR and some sort of gear highlight video on the Machinedrum with one of the guys from Elektron who helped develop it. Just posted the video like two days ago, so maybe they just took it down to edit it or something? Or maybe it was supposed to be a subscriber only sort of thing? I dunno, if I see it back up I'll post it.

maybe it was removed for good. maybe he said too much... something he shouldn't have said

 

do you remember what he said?

It was specifically about the MD. Two guys who work for ADSR who also used to work for Roland, talking with the one guy from Elektron. 

 

They mentioned AE for a few minutes...Elektron guy said the company was surprised to see a spike in sales suddenly, and didn't realize why until they found out someone had posted a photo online of AE with a MD on stage. The ADSR guy mentioned that he'd actually talked to Rob or Sean (or both?) about the Elektron machines or something, mentioned some of the other gear they'd worked with before that was similar (can't remember which) and it was just maybe five minutes mentioning Autechre (Aw-teck-ruh according to ADSR dude lol) as a whole.
