Autechre Tracks with Vocal Samples

Recommended Posts

I don't believe there's already a thread like this. Well, I hope not at least. I've already done a preliminary forum scan.

To my knowledge, at least one track on every release Autechre have produced contains vocal samples in one form or another. Care to name a few?

My only request is that when you mention the track title, also mention the title of the LP, EP, or single it's from.

There are dozens of tracks that have vocals in them. It's a really great touch too. Seems to attach the totally alien and the impossible to something very directly human, even if it's obscured to the point that it's hardly recognizable.


There are several tracks on Amber/Garbage that have snippets. I haven't heard any on Tri Rep, Cichlisuite, or Move of Ten. There are some whispering-sounding effects in Stud and in that sorta counter-bass rhythm in Dael, but I think everything on Tri Rep is synthesized.

And I don't recall any from Chiastic Slide but I'll listen for it next time I decide to put it on.


Listening to VL AL 5 and there are some stutters every now and then, really ghostly.

Dial - Gantz Graf

Cap.IV - Gantz Graf


I wanted to make a list, but it'll take a while, so I'll do that later.

There are some on Oversteps, Move of Ten, Quaristice, Peel Session 2 and others, so...

hmm... does Calbruc has a man shouting "AAAH." in every bar,

Like "dum dum AAAH (syyyynth) dum dum AAAH (syyyynth)" or it only seems to me?

Yes, it seems a man's voice. It sounds like two punches and a scream tu tump aaah! but maybe that scream is a synth...


btw I find that voices in autechre's tracks often add an alien and grotesque touch, not a human/familiar feel (and i like that). The most scariest use of voice is the EP7 tracks, the first time that i noticed the voice at the end of Zeiss Conterex it scared the shit out of me!

I'd mention Lentic Catachresis from Confield, but it's hard to tell if there are actual vocal samples in it. It sounds heavily granulized if that's the case.

Haha Pro Radii is the only one i have ever noticed this on before

I will listen to the others to see if i can hear!


Cool :)

It's kind of like an Easter Egg hunt. I'm certain that every release from Cavity Job to Exai has at least one track with "vocals".


Also, IV VV IV VV VIII from Draft 7.30 has a very brief vocal snippet at the end.

      I brought up this thought in the dedicAtEd thread for Untilted but I think it is an interesting enough idea generally speaking. Here's the alternate order I came up with for their 2005 offering, Fermium is not removed because I dislike the song but because it feels like the odd one out. This is just my first attempt at this and I don't think I have a better sequence than S and R (fucking love this album the way it is as it is), but it is fun to try rejigger things a bit and see if there are some nice ways of changing the sequencing, just for fun

      1. LCC
      2. The Trees
      3. Augmatic Disport
      4. Ipacial Section
      5. Iera
      6. Pro Radii
      7. Sublimit

      Here's what auxien said about this new order/removing Fermium:

      "hm, not sure about Fermium on its own, feels naked like that. but it is a little bit of an odd one out on the album perhaps, so i see the case there. 
      random thoughts listening to this tracklisting:
      LCC as opener and Sublimit as closer is necessary, good work on not trying to fuck with that not sure about The Trees as track 2, feels a little too close in shape to LCC Ipacial into Iera is fucking great Iera into Pro Radii works pretty well Pro Radii into Sublimit works pretty well too  overall not as offensive as i'd expected trying to tweak what's pretty close to a perfect album. may see about doing an alternate tracklist of my own"

      Bandcamp Friday, here we go. First artist to get remixed by Ae twice. The last one was brilliant.
