Auteqatsi = Koyannisqatsi + Ae score


Guest Billov

Recommended Posts

Titter, we did one of our live sets with Koyaanisqatsi as a backing video and noone batted an eyelid as apparently the music fitted perfectly (It was a last minute decision as the VJ didn't turn up. We just bunged the DVD into a projector and we couldn't see it from our POV !). Proof that any music moderately slow will fit with that film !

I don't doubt this... but its still a nice selection of tracks to fit the visuals. Some of the video parts are blocked over my side, so I asked the dude who uploaded them and he gave me a download link of all the parts.

pretty low youtube quality, but if anyones getting mgm blocked messages this is worth a shot.

Actually, Godfrey [Director] did a very smart thing. He said, "I'm gonna show you the movie [Koyaanisqatsi], what I've done, I'm gonna show it to you twice. Once with an electronic score that I've gotten, and once with your music. And he showed it to me both times and he said, "Well, as you can see, your music works much better". So, what could I say? (laughs) Basically, I had said yes. So, I was interested and I said, "Oh, this is something I can do".

 

Is this the lost electronic score? After reading the topic title, I very excitedly clicked the thread and watched the first video. But I really wasn't that impressed. It was a good idea, but for a piece of music to really work with Koyaanisqatsi, it has to be composed especially. But that's just me.

God I loved that movie. I always thought BoC would work well as a substitute because the movie is a little old.

 

For this beginning part, I still prefer that mesmerizing, simple melody that Mr. Glass employs

 

In a whole, I feel like something from Draft 7.30 or Confield would work GREAT for the high energy part near the end of the film.

 

There's my two cents

      Hey WATMM heads!
      Remembering the AE-Warp25-Krakow bootleg recording from 2014? 


       Well, we went to Budapest this year capturing an all new proper bootleg from Autechre's recent OneSix tour. You can check it out and get the FLAC version here: https://archive.org/details/AutechreOneSixTour-BudapestHU-07-11-16   The recording was captured using the same zoom H2n that was used in 2014 to capture the now semi-legedary Warp25 krakow recording, which actually made quite a stir here on this forum, with all the different remixes, etc.  
      Alumni is still around here? haha   Normally, this recording was also treated afterwards in order to sound as authentic to the real experience as possible.   A fun fact is that the upload of this bootleg was approved by Rob Brown. We actually managed to catch up with him inside one of the largest thermal baths in Budapest, just a few hours before the gig and had a very interesting 30-min chitchat regarding stuff such as pirate radio, bootlegs sharing and all this old school background from where they are coming basically. ;)    The bootleg is also available to stream via/ YouTube
      SoundCloud Mixcloud
        Enjoy and spread the sounds around! After the mind-altering experience in Budapest's darkest depths of Akvarium Club we can certainly say that OneSix is Autechre at their most sonically complex iteration till date.   Cheers from Eastern EU, DSPH Sounds
