Artificial Intelligence I: Autechre's Contributions

Recommended Posts

I've been listening to the classic Artificial Intelligence I, more specifically Autechre's contributions, The Egg and Crystel, and I am amazed how well they hold up after all these years. Simply amazing tracks.

Yeah, I thought about that - at first I was going to talk about AI overall, but Autechre's tracks stand head and shoulders above the rest (even Polygon Window). I'll move this.

I don't think i've actually heard the other tracks on the compilations! Apart from polygon window of course. I'll have to give them a listen.

I still play these tracks all the time (and Chatter from volume 2), they still sound really cool to me and have aged perfectly.

I always liked Speedy J's "Fill 3" which for years I thought was The Orb's "Loving You" because the track titles were switched on the case, and I hadn't heard "A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Rules From The Center Of The Ultraworld" yet.

Yeah I really wish Autechre had made the same album 12 times over.

 

 

The tracks on AI 1, are Sunny Weather Autechre. When the warm sun is shining and have a cold glass of beer in your hand and fancy some Autechre, what do you play? Always these tracks.

It would be nice if the lads could make a sunny summer weather album. Thats sounds cheesy as fuck I know.

 

It won't happen. Forget I said anything lol.

In what way is Amber 'quasi-academic bullshit' ?! :huh:

(In fact, how on earth can a track be 'quasi-academic' )

"The Egg" is a tuuunne

 

Good tune. I prefer the "cleaner" sounding version of it in Eggshell from Incunabula though.

See, I'm quite the opposite - I never really cared too much for Eggshell, but The Egg just screams 'Autechre' for me - at least the Autechre I prefer.

The Egg is definetely more hip hop inspired, although those cut up voices that come in around 1:45 sound a bit too messy and out of place IMO. It gets wicked from around half way through where the meaty beats start coming in.

 

I think the "shiny" clean production on Eggshell does it better justice though. I find the hecticness in The Egg comes across as slightly disorganised, as bits plastered on here and there for effect.

I love the extra melodies in The Egg.. I've ripped them off quite often :whistling:
