AAA - Ask Autechre Anything - Sean and Rob on WATMM!

Does knowing the size and shape of the venue where you perform influence the choice of sounds you will play?


Describe in words what it will sound like if you were allowed to give a concert in the Large Hadron Collider

(probably shit acoustics, but hey it's the thought that counts right?)

your studio workspace:

 

a.) neatly wired, racked, organized

b.) whatever gear is currently in use wired up, stacked up, half is on the floor

c.) a laptop computer

It's called the Large Helical Device in Japan. It spins 100 million degree hydrogen plasma around. Here is a video:

have you ever figured out exactly how inverse envelopes work? or the non-adsr envs on juno 1/2 etc?

 

for whatever reason i never take the time to look this up. i think i would be a better person if i did. for years i've just moved the sliders and hoped it did what i wanted.

Hey Autechre, I posted a pretty long one earlier, wouldn’t blame you if you skipped the whole thing so I’ll make it more succinct (feel a bit cheeky doing this as a new member) :

 

Would you guys consider coming back to Belfast and/or Dublin? (I know it’s not Russia or the southern states but the closer the better!). I saw you here (Belfast) back on the Untilted tour, can’t remember much of it tho but saw you again in London for the Oversteps tour, won’t be forgetting that one, was incredible.

 

Missed you down in Dublin last time and was going to ask how the sound was cos I had been to a show at the same venue a couple of months previous and it was really bad but I’ve just watched a youtube audience recording of it, and from what I can tell, it sounds pretty good, also I can hear tuinorizn towards the end of that set. Was that track something you had developed from the live set for the album or had you been working on it after the ‘main’ tour had finished?

 

Favourite Kool Keith-related record?

 

It's also great to see that my fav musicians are showing no signs of slowing down :) Cheers for the music

yeah it helps sometimes, but u never really know till u get there. like we got to holland once we played in a circular huge metal roofed gas tank, and the delay was epic, it forced us to change the tempo so we could actually hear any of it

Hello ae,

 

dayum, halfway through a fortnight off work and all I've done is keep up with this thread. I was in chatmm when Sean wandered in on Saturday and have been chained to watmm ever since.

 

Just to say, thank you for the sounds. Draft 7.30 was my first ae LP and still holds a very special place in your discography (I have it all).

 

I've made some good notes for stuff to check out from you guys so here are my recommendations to you:

 

Cake & Polka Parade

 

http://wfmu.org/playlists/FJ

 

Hooting Yard

 

http://podcasts.resonancefm.com/archives/category/shows/hooting

 

Very thanks for this!

thanks ,

 

yeah we really liked playing dublin, don't think its ever been shit not once. we'll be there, got a small gang of friends there too. very hospitable, always ending up at ppls houses all w/e after the sets.

 

i think the sound was top. and it wasn't the tour - was a one off later so we got invited to a more fortunate timing like big w/e show at good venue

 

ah u spot - bits of it yeah

 

really fond of first U-magnetics. "Ultra's M'cs"

Not sure if my earlier question got missed or lost since I had to edit it. I was wondering if either of you are into the current state of house and its varying genre's? The deep house boom that seems to be going on right now? Keep up with any techno at all? and I know I am start to be a begger lol, I'll admit I get star struck haha, but can I get a name of my Oxygen 49? :w00t:

some final comments - this is almost over so please know i'm not just trying to kiss your asses - autechre tracks are true art. (i deleted a bunch of true but needlessly mean thoughts about other artists that are supposedly ae's peers).

 

i remember clearly when i decided that draft 7.30 was the best electronic LP ever. Was driving around all day helping some one move to a new apartment. was sitting at a stop light and ... it just hit me. no LP compares to this.

 

most of the percussion on 7.30 sounds like it has a short delay/chorus to it. thick but in a novel way.
