FLeure as a whole starts out sounding like stock AE (morphing crunchy beats, weird bleepy melody and noises, etc.)

 

Fleure as a whole starts out sounding like stock music (sounds, rhythms, etc.)

 

(My point is that your parenthetical description doesn't explain to me what you mean by "stock AE", which I don't understand. Maybe you can pick another track from this "stock" and outline the similarities in more detail?)

yep. there is still the element of "playing" and I think that's important.

 

yeah, I'm thinking more that they'd "play" it once, record all of the parameter tweaks in, and then the patch evolves the recorded tweaks each time. so there's still a live, ae-controlled element in there, it just gets more and more distorted over time..

 

 

That's exactly the kinda thing I would want. Not just textures but compositions with some algorithmic variation.

 

Also I agree w you that Fleure is underwhelming, though I like the 3rd act fadeout

After reading your comment about fleure i hated you but i've listened to Banks for free and it made my day so you're forgiven

the first part of Fleure is great, i wish there was more material on the album that sounded like it. it doesn't remind me of other ae tracks, it doesn't sound standard or "stock"--what the problem is?

Does anyone else get a strong acroyear2 vibe from FLeure?

Bought a FleurEast album by accident thinking it was an EP spinoff from the track ...

Eutow, Acroyear2, Lentic Catachresis, Dial., Fermium, Second Scepe, Flutter, Yeesland, Pencha, Tilapia, Liccflii. I could go on...

 

Similar details include higher frequency rhythms/hats/percussive hits often frequently changing patterns. Hip hop influenced grooves often at relatively higher BPMs (no, we're not talking Jungle territory, obviously), often featuring bleepy/percussive melodies that can seem random or abnormal, and often more 'normal' sounding pads or bass carrying more 'normal' melodies.

 

"Stock" doesn't mean that's all they do, or that it's boring, but that is sort of what they're known for.

And hell yes to this. Such a great track.

this is a long topic, can anyone point me to the interesting pages?

I quite enjoyed the part where people were threatening to burn the Koran because Warp hadn't released the album yet despite it being less than two months until the album's actual release date (page 152).

Been a while since I read but I imagine the thread goes:

 

Announcement -> Speculation -> Rumours -> Initial hints and snippets -> Release/Pre-order -> Waiting -> Leaked -> Arrival -> Initial thoughts and pictures -> Post-album reviews -> Pointing to other reviews online -> In depth discussion -> Thoughts a little later -> Thoughts a lot later -> Today.
