I, too, used to call nice music moments sick, ill, fucked up, mad, crazy, wikkid, recommended, weird, odd, strange, alien, spooky etc

 

But evil, mhmnmmhm, doesn't work

 

I guess Bine is evil in a way

That time in '97 when they murdered a hobo.


Just out of curiosity: does "that time...when" imply similar events might have happened in the past? I'm not sure. But the point might be, that it's still a possibility. It might be the case that all those other times were less evil. Maybe they also killed some mosquitoes, or something. That time in '93 when they killed hundred mosquitoes just for fun might be a close second most evil moment.

 

 

I've said too much already...

lol really? Unless I'm getting the key completely wrong, it sounds like one of the prettiest things they've released.

yeah what the heck, Yulquen is pure lush Bladerunner esque sci-fi vibes.
[/quote][/quote]
I always thought so too, but the way it evolves in the last half of the track started to creep me out a couple years ago. It's kind of hard to explain but it has to do with the implied sense of scale. It is definitely lush and pretty too.

It's the least cheesy and most forward thinking track on Amber by a long shot.

if we're also including Gescom, Minidisc has some evil-sounding moments.

Yeah there's some pretty demonic bits on there with the FFT experiments and the brutal drum retriggering and sickly ambience. Also lots of unresolved dead ends which often have evil vibes in context (like the aforementioned cat purring in Tewe).

Teartear is pretty menacing, surprised it hasn't had a mention yet.

Yeah, it is a pretty ominous track...

 

Has AE ever done a happy sounding, joyous track? I can't think of any at the moment...


Oh, and Chris Cunningham's video for Second Bad Vilbel is just nightmare fuel (to me) - imagine being trapped in a room with that thing and its master:

All of Confield is an obvious choice, but hmmmm

 

The entirety of vekoS sounds like malicious mind control. It opens with a whole spectrum of percussive sounds, meant to trick your brain and turn it inside out..then the sounds start flipping themselves forward and backward along with your sense of balance and control..then that gristly whisper begins commanding your subconscious..next thing you know, everything is lost..you are paralyzed as you sink into an abyss of submission..like a car crash, you can do nothing but fall further and further downwards, observing reality as it blurs and stretches around you..

 

Also Sim Gishel, just cause those truncated pads sound to me like a decaying corpse

 

This is a good thread

Aye. IIRC Sean confirmed in the AAA thread back in Nov 2013 that it was a sample of his old cat Winterbottom.

Lol wp. It doesn't stick in memory for me at all.  It's like they needed to pop to the toilet and let one of the lads from Plaid take over and he couldn't really come up with anything

None of them IMHO, but "Slip" from Amber suits the description.

If I had 3D animation skills (i.e. a thoroughly empty threat) I'm sure I could convince at least 1 person in this thread.
