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

Recommended Posts

 

ok so
i'm gonna have to split
i just want to say cheers for asking so many mental questions
i hope some of our answers were illuminating or at least amusing
i really enjoyed it cos you asked us a lot of stuff that journos don't usually, i was hoping that would happen, watmm delivers

thanks for joining us in here Sean and Rob, was a lot of fun. And what I've just bolded may seem obvious, but I don't think many musicians have taken the opportunity that you guys have to do a fun Q&A like this, so major props. Often I'm pretty surprised by the boring nature of the interview questions you guys are usually asked by real 'journos', glad this was a good experience for you.

:beer:

Kcinsu, mcbpete and a few others I think you were interested in their response to the physical modeling question. apparently they answered it but i never saw it and the answer is brilliant (but still oblique)

 

 

lot of loaded questions here tbh but i'll say this
we've been blagging sounds for years, way way before we heard anyone using the term physical modelling
even just using a 202 you can make really mad 'bonk' sounds by tuning the resonance and using the res env a certain way (think of voodoo ray by gerald)

not implying we were the first at all obviously, wendy carlos and tomita were running rings round anything we did before we even knew what music was
but like, there are literally tons of ways you can make fake things out of other things. this idea that physmod is only a few techniques is a bit of a new thing really. but i guess describing those things an non-linear processes is a bit much for some people

you can make a wide array of vowel sounds using a combination of pwm and fm, but it's only considered formant synthesis is you're using a collection of bpf's

the actual list of techniques that you're supposed to learn is weirdly limited and doesn't really cover what's possible. in a lot of ways things were more interesting before it all got formalised
that's why wendy carlos and tomita are so good, cos they didn't have that list of techniques getting in the way, they found most of it thru trial and error

i like that response a lot

not being an Indian pro, I fucked myself up for a few weeks after using netipot. I felt like there was some water trapped in my ear or something, really not a good feeling
