Just took it upon myself to start another L-Event track thread. I find this to be the best track on the EP, and you might either agree or disagree.

Discuss details, criticisms, etc.

too many detail packed into too tight space.. hyper-change envelope/pan action too much savoring. brain overwhelmed, how do i enter? snare in second half is water-logged, track needs more air in general. imagine it as compact fire, imagine it spread out and take bigger form. or maybe it is perfect little package, teeming w/info

It's been said before but this is the best Ae track in a long time imo. Not that their recent stuff hasn't been awesome - it has - but tac Lacora is fucking phenomenal gantz graf style fuckery.

I'm not really sure that bit of silence is intentional

 

Sounds heavily intentional for me, almost an equivalent of this technique

I've heard prior examples of this in Liccflii on EP7 and Xylin Room on Draft 7.30. I'd have to agree as well that it's no accident.

elements of this track remind me of EP7 - notably netlon sentinel and liccflii

 

This. And not Gantz Graf, but maybe Cap IV. And I have to listen a lot more to it (I'm on listen #2!). Definitely interesting.

It has a soul.

well, if you cut it out in a wave editor it loops seamlessly. just sayin'

It's only one beat long though. If you cut it out in a wave editor it's like an unnecessary time signature change.

lol @ repairing ae tracks which lost some audio during production.

a little bit of silence here and there, it happens right? maybe a bunch of bits flipped on sean's floppy disk?

 

no problemo, audacity to the rescue!

Hmm, that bit of silence. Well it has to be there, that passage and melody transition starves for silence - but the start of silence is kind of badly done (the ending is perfect), that's why it sounds broken. IMO.

Of course the silence is international and I think it works really well. Think this is my favourite track on the EP at the moment but that seems to be changing all the time which is always a good thing!

What about neighborhood silence? What about local silence? What about nationalist silence? Are you saying those don't work? What if international cat lacora sleeps, will the audio files be silent?

I not explicitly ask you, but the whole internationets.

Haha amazing typo! Sorry about that

 

But yeah International Silence is the only 1 that really works. Actualy International Silence would be a pretty cool band name

I need to correct myself. THIS SILENCE IS PERFECT AND MAKES PERFECTLY SENSE. Nothing is badly done. The track clearly gets into disorder say from 3:07 onwards, you can hear it better in the context, if you start at 2:30 e.g. - and you hear the stronger distortion at like 3:15, then in 3:25 unstable pitch as the last chapter before the break - and then kind of lush (in Ae terms that is :-) ending.

 

TIS PERFECT

THOU SHALL TRUST IN THE MASTERS OV TRANSITION

 

Time for some Surripere, the perfectetstest example of transitions. Another one is Shostakovich Sym. 5 mvmt 1 ending, where he makes a transition to the main theme.

      When I heard Dummy Casual, it drove me insane because I just knew I had heard that "melody" before. It took a few weeks of random listening both to NTS and the back catalogue but I finally figured it out: 
       
      Dummy Casual has the same "melody" as tac Lacora! Forgive me if this is obvious to everyone else, but: 
       
      Listen to Dummy Casual, 0:00 - 0:50 or so. 
      Listen to tac Lacora from 0:49 - 1:58 or so. 
       
      I have to say, I prefer Dummy Casual to tac Lacora, even though they are brothers (and even though L-event is way high on my list of EPs)...Dummy Casual has this sinister shuffling, feels like you're in a strange land feeling going on. 
       
      There's a few spots in the NTS sessions where I've discovered wormholes not just to other material from the el seq era on but also going further back. If I think of any more wormholes I will update. 
       
       
      I just love when artists have recurring melodies or themes across their catalogues, it makes the whole listening experience that much more intense and rewarding. There's not a ton of artists who do it. I suppose Neil Young comes to mind, as does Mount Eerie, in the rock sphere. Electronic-wise, AFX has certain pads and sounds he's very fond of but not necessarily melodies.
       
      Of course, in AE's case, the fact that portions of certain patches are probably re-used modularly also can explain why these pieces of songs appear in other songs as well. With AE, it's not always (or often) melody, but can be any portion of a patch that can be brought in, so the sonic wormhole possibilities are endless. 
       
      God bless these boys, each and every one.

      So I spent the majority of last night (12am-5am) messing around with this thing. It's a programme based off of that deepdream thing google had awhile back. anyways it's free, you just sign up and upload an image and select a filter you want to use. I got some pretty cool ones, some not as interesting. in the time it took between uploads I was on here reading thru different threads, so I figured i'd share a bunch of them. As you all know by now, my favourite æ album is of course their best album, and that album, as we all know and can agree upon,   is Quaristice. So naturally I spent the most time with that one. I would have done more but I musste sleepen. If anyone feels like doing some of their other album covers, or even other cool covers, please post 'em up!
      Note that I always chose to keep the original colours when filtering.
