So what are the chances of any more reissues or Elseq coming to vinyl? When they dropped they said never but if anything this group is full of surprises.

Given the nature of Elseq itself I guess it's a 100% digital release. The only "repackaging" of Elseq I can imagine would be the release of volumes 2 - 5 on streaming services but even something like that seems unlikely to happen.

 

 

Other vinyl reissues would be great but I guess it's Warp's problem anyway !

take the already minimal chance of it coming out on CD and multiply by 0.01

I've been thinking of recording elseq 1-5 onto some hi quality metal tape cassettes with Dolby C or S, just for my own fun personal listening experience. I'm also curious as to what recording them to cassette would do to the sound… sure it wouldn't be as good as the originals, but you know how tape can sometimes give it this pleasurable sound…

I peronally doubt they would put this out on vinyl or cd, and honestly it would be kinda lame if they did, seeing as that would be going back on their word. I dig the fully digital release. It's what made me commit to investing in a hi quality DAP.

 

Repressings of the older stuff would be very welcome tho! While the pressing of Incunabula wasn't amazing, still nice to have it on vinyl, and Amber and Tri Repetae sounded incredible. I think listening to Amber on vinyl was what really made me get into that album much more than I ever had before.

I'm happy with Elseq on good quality digital formats. I can walk around with my HD Sony Walkman flacs and Bose QCThirtyfives's pumping Autechre right into the centre of my brain.

 

Simple but devastatingly effective.

I'd honestly like elseq to come out on CD, but given they haven't even released elseq 2-5 on other streaming platforms like mentioned above, I highly doubt it. Maybe 10 years later or something they'll get them to physical, other than that I'm not holding my breath.

Busting the longer tracks up into vinyl sides would be a travesty

I fit elseq 1- 5 on to 4 CDs, and re-named then A-D.  Tracklisting is all over the place.

 

elseq-C is my favourite.

the irony of recording something to some low-fi format, like tape, but in the most optimal way possible (high quality metal!? dolby s..whatevs). wouldn't it be better to actually use the worst quality tape/technologies available?

 

if you're going for low-fi, don't aim for medium-fi by optimising all these low-fi technologies ;-p
