Clipper is a triumph

Recommended Posts

Threw this on the headphones - hadn't heard it in a while. wow 95!! sounds inhumanly clean and precise. The filter sweeps on that fat synth line get me every time. Much appreciate the slight little moments when the perfect percussion machine slips up and a click or cut breaks from the pattern. Shows what incredible care these two take and the 808(ish) cowbells at the end always crack me up.

 

This is ae at the top of their game for me - we all love the digi-insanity but this one seems to be the end of the early era but it's still powerful and complex.

Clipper is one of my favorite tracks from the album. The glitchy drums contrasted with the lush pads are :music:

Clipper is my nickname on another forum. I'm glad I didn't pick it for this place because I'm hardly an Autechre 'fan' compared to many WATMMers, but what a track.

Yeah! One of my favourite Ae tracks. Every time I listen to it I think, "damn, someone knows how to rock a ribbon controller".

TRI REPETAAAAEEEEE

 

 

One of the few moments of IDM history I was present for. :cool:

 

Re: Clipper, I always think it's a great example of how music can be awesome and cheesy at the same time.

 

Edit: If anyone's interested in the story behind TRI REPETAEEEEE, the original story w/ sound clips is here.

 

The old photoshop someone did of the spatan dude's head screaming "THIS IS AUTECHRE!!!" is missing though. Does anyone still have it?

wtf happened to CATS?

CATS was the FLACiest FLACer to ever FLAC around here. He is still active on Discogs as 'Nostradamus7'.

Amazing track until those keyboard stabs, then it's time to skip.

That Tri Repetae guy makes for a hilarious sample; he's so passionate!!!

 

I recorded the set in Vancouver for the Quaristice tour and during that same breakdown around 23 minutes in where 'TRI REPETAEEEEEEE' happened in Toronto, Autechre's Sound Engineer came over to me and attempted to sabotage my recording. What he ended up doing was making it 10 X better! I've uploaded it here for you all to listen to :)

Sorry guys, but you have this great beat/scratching, and then the big wooden drum which is awesome, then it gets even more amazing with dat bass, wauw.

It's amazing for a few minutes then these horrible keyboard stabs that don't fit and sound old and horrible come in and kill the mood

Must be nice having that opinion all to yourself which is of course quite, quite wrong sir.

Amazing track first 10 seconds, then a bit suspicious for another 15, and then those shitty FX driven rhythmic layers come and outdated crap happens. Neat composition for a dubstep tune or something. Early ae is so by numbers i can only sympathise

I think those stabs are a pretty crucial part of the track, really. The way they interact with the delay is amazing.
