Sean and Rob, thank you for being with us all these days. It was great and unexpected!

And the last question:

Guys, do you consider yourself happy?

Sean, please give the name of my collection of CDs and vinyls Autechre :music:

Wish you all the best! :beer:

Sean, you do not like my avatar? Or am I asking too stupid questions? :wink:

ah yeah re Dael. i mean it could be said as dial, or dale or whatever, so i'm glad we came upon autechre, and like that start and end of = ae, it works well in my local ancient surroundings in many ways that are cool. so yeah. thanks for the details there norway cru

 

you're more than welcome Rob! yea, I think the ae abbreviation is quite catchy and fitting =)

 

 

okay so just a few more before bed,

 

I'm really curious about (sorry if this have been asked/answered earlier somewhere) :

 

- parhelic triangle, those eerie chimes, is that a sample from something, like some kind of bell instrument or something else?

- in krib, is that screws or marbles droppin on the table or something else?

 

 

just to give it another try, as it seems everyone is doing it: any chance of getting a name for my new kindle?

(sorry, not into making music so I don't have any music related gear to be named, but I'm an avid reader so would be nice to have my reading device named by u guys!)

 

 

oh and I just need to: ............................ rob sean pls, come back to Norway on your next tour! .............. there, I did it!

 

 

I think that was that, I mean I could go on ask you all kinds of stuff, like what's ur favourite tooth paste and stuff like that. but I think I'll just leave it with this. discussing Lost, SW, Huxley, Batman etc with Sean, and Yello and stuff with Rob I guess is more that I could ever ask for! cheers guys once again. I'll keep following your work as long as you keep on going, so just keep on going making sounds/tracks/albums for us!

 

need to prepare for bed. This have been out of this world super awesome, Thanks a million times guys! :)

-no, it's not marbles or screws

Really great to hear that you're fans of zoviet-france too -- I've been really into both Ae and z-f since about mid-1990s and was surprised when I heard later that you played a show together. (I saw the earlier answers about that)

 

Curious if you have any favorites of 'classic' z-f work (say, Shadow Thief of the Sun and before) or any recollections of how you first got into them ?

I really like your remix of Medium - Celsius for 7 Hills Clash Rebuilt (Forgemasters track is great too)

Anything you can tell us about that mix, or the artist?

 

 

 

dunno if i have any real details. they lived in sheffield same time as us, drew wasn't it sean? had to keep it pretty dubby and brittle cos they new bass up in sheffield and they're good at the sport, esp. the small labels like 10 denk, always pretty characteristic of the sheffield scene as i knew it.

What do you do for sinus problems?

steam mostly

i'm feeling fucked tonight tho i might have to bow out soon

 

Man steam is GREAT for congestion. Nothing better than standing in a hot shower and just letting it do its trick. Have you tried using a "nedipot" yet? Its pretty wild and makes you feel like you are drowning but will clear the nose and sinus out real quick.

squarepusher judging fan remixes, BoC throwing international breadcrumbs around the place for their new album release and now the 'chre chatting like its no big thang.

Hi Sean/Rob please visit mexico, here are many people that wants to enjoy your music live.

 

I think that your albums have different character, but for me Confield is special because is based on generative sequences, how did you avoid using random number generators?

 

UnderBOAC has one of my favorite complex beats, did you program a polyrhytm sequencer in max?

 

Are you still using the nord lead, yamaha fs1r, akai mpc 1000 on Exai/L-event?

 

What do you think about ipad/lemur as a controller?

 

Best regards

laloslalos

 

 

i dunno it's easy enough not to use random in max

not that i'm against it any more (at least in principle - as long as it's done carefully noise can be really useful), but on confield we weren't doing that

 

no that was all programmed in logic audio

 

i think there's a bit of mpc on a couple of tracks but none of the rest

 

never used lemur

iPads are great but tbh i prefer something tactile for using with max, for now anyway

we did 3 shows together iirc

one of them was a joint bill where we overlapped our sets but the others were collab gigs

(i might have that wrong, maybe 2 of them were overlapping, my brain is gone)

i can def rem 3 gigs tho, one in newcastle, one in amsterdam, one in nottingham (i think)

 

got into them in 94 cos of chantal, she played me collusion and what is not true and look into me, and i backtracked

Some people consider Second Peng the first Dubstep track, predating all others which are like early 2000

 

Do you agree or disagree with this assessment?

haha yeah ok. but half has been around forever
