draft 7.30

Confield and Draft especially seemed to have more traditional synthesised/source sounds totally morphed/melted until tracks were more musical 'bio-mechanical' organisms. What alien sound design! Apart from V-Pro (with its very recognisable beat sounds), even the percussion kicks and squelches from another living world. From Untilted onwards the sound design seemed far less non-referential and more overtly 'synthy', with Quaristice and then Oversteps being the clearest expression of this. I love those three, but I also miss the days of inhabiting alternate wooden universes as supplied on Draft.

 

well-said!

True, it's not all woody - much is super metallic and/or harsh and very non-woody. But some has definite wood. Words fail in all of this. But there is a definite difference in approach between the sonic worlds of Confield/Draft 7.30 and then Untilted, Quaristice and Oversteps - because of these totally non-hidden reverbs, very synthy synth sounds, recognisable Elektron/classic drum machine sounds, even very recognisable real samples/field recordings, etc. :-) This appears to be the case more and more from Untilted to Oversteps.

 

Where all of those elements are usually massaged into something totally 'other' on releases like Draft 7.30 or Confield, on the last three even I can hear those elements more as they are, more distinctly, closer to the source.

I see Miley twerking to V-Proc

 

No, seriously, V-Proc is one of Autechre's rawest and best songs, for me. In fact, I have the start of the song as a phone calling tone.

Heh, me too. Edited so the beat kicks in about 5 secs before it goes to the ansafone.

Draft has never given me woody textures, I don't get why people say that

 

Yeah, I never got a wood feeling from Draft... I always pictured metallic alloys bending and snapping themselves into various architectures, much like the artwork on the cover.

I love the start of v-proc, but the 2nd half is crying out for a bit more of an interesting progression - an ae melody to tie it together would have been nice. The 'beat falling apart' effect they use doesn't work at all for me, they could have at least gone for an epic 'non-existant' style beat deconstruction.

Hey can you point out a track of theirs with this? (Epic non-existant) Not quite sure what you mean???
