I feel like end is this terrifying mutation of 4 more limbs coming out of whatever bizarre organic geometric rock I had been watching rolling around on the horizons of mars.

Confield was the first Ae release I purchased in 2005 after being a casual listener for a while. I remember pulling over on the way home to take that track in as I was so distracted by it it wasn't safe to drive

first time I heard parhelic I thought it sounded like two guys slugging it out with those squelchy punches. Then there's that fly buzzing noise, so it became two weary farmers boxing beside a large silver silo. The bells were Hell's Bells dhaturas, twisting and growing, working their wretched magic on the farmers' minds, slowly being devoured by the quicksands of that purple misted fetid, perpetually rotting and living, confield swamp.

it's funny, I don't hear parhelic triangle as very menacing anymore, especially in anticipation of that lovely melody that pokes out near the very end of the track. man, it's been way too long since I last listened to confield, gotta change that

I adore c16 deep tread, still my favourite elseq track, but the kitchen sink percussion enhances this sterile sense of metal and blood interacting, like a Disney character icon by day who medical examines, undertakes or torture lairs by night for kicks. I find the track euphoric and playful, but I'd be apprehensive about gushing over it, less you got the 'bonkers' look. It just sounds up to no good, it sounds like something is helpless or prostrate, like Donald Duck got a little disturbed after some time in the forces, and like a lot of their 2nd tracks it feels vaguely ominous and/or insectoid.

d-sho qub : love this one, it runs through a wide spectrum of emotions: the first part represents perhaps the only and isolated "joyous" side of Ae (maybe with "stop look listen" starting). I don't say serene, ecstatic or anything else, I mean just to a carefree sense of joy. Interestingly, then, as the change of a few notes, it pollutes the state of things without, however, guiding us immediately into pitch dark (I am referring to the supporting melody, not to the underlying structure, which has obvious tensions since the beginning). At 2:44 there is the first change of mood, the last two notes make the melody partially foreign. At 3:22 the tone drive in to dramatic aspects, and so on until the melody itself is dismantled. As for the choruses of the finale: if heard with the earphones, they seem to consist of a thick net of flakes, not single voices, but this may be due to swollen psychotrops more than a real fact, so sorry if i'm wrong.
In any case: the use of human choruses is not frequent in Autechre, it would be interesting to make a dedicated post. Onesix has an interesting abundance of choirs, in the first part, that remind me of the maximistic compositions of Giacinto Scelsi, like Uaxuctum.
Even in the liveset of 2010 (not by chance the oversteps tour) there is apocalyptic use of choirs.
On the Turin date,, I remember one of the darkest passages in Rob und Sean's story, which could earn the absolute primacy of "the most evil moment"

Scelsi was one of the greatest Italian composers, here in Italy, however, was completely forgotten.
The incredible coincidence is that, recently, I found out that it was born 12 kilometers from my home (Pitelli, La Spezia). I found it by chance, on the Internet, here in La Spezia, in fact, we did not even dedicate to him the name of a sidewalk or a vespasian.

 

Anyway, I wrote about "maximistic composition", just to distinguish songs like uaxutum from his minimalistic partiture: it's a term I used with some forcing ...

I love how all their releases have been different from the last, I'm not sure if elseq tops everything since say lp5, but it will definitely stand the test of time coz it's well out there hey. Basically I'm confident they will continue to come up with things that exceed my expectations. And yeah feed1 is a great opener to elseq.
Also over the weekend I played tac Lacora to my partners 16 yo sister, coz she was all like - so, like, what do you listen to, like? I said hang on, crancked it up - and the way she jumped off her seat (sitting fairly close to the speakers) was the single most satisfying thing I have experienced in a while. She was so lost for words, you know coz shes 16 and all about the radio top 40 or whatever... tac Lacora sooo

Wouldn't he prefer it that way tho, there was his quote of something to the effect of "burn all scores of my music", it was in the now deleted video of Konx-Om-Pax titled Scelsi: In His Own Words on the New Music channel.

 

Not sure if all the quotes used were authentic, since very little is verifiable about him. In fact, it was like five sentences stretched for 10 mins (old limit on YT), "my music is not minimalist, not pointellistic etc.", some bad ass koan about a crawling flea? and a story of repeatedly playing one C note on an old piano in the mental hospital.

 

He made an impression of a real maverick.
