A guide to Autechre by Deep Cuts

Recommended Posts

Very cool

 

Yeah, saw it, not yet listened. TBH, my first thought was "how does this boy even" - but erm well, uncool thought of an aging veteran maybe. ;-)

But if it's true - if he didn't mention Surripere when talking about Draft - well, that's a major #fail. Is it possible he is just a quote replication machine? Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, I am the only legit holder ov the fanboi crown you unworthy baby will not steal it from me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111111111111111111111111111111111

i struggle with the idea of a guide to music that doesn't include clips of the music, which surely should be possible copyright-wise due to it being critique of sorts - managing 50 minutes of it is bizarre, and probably only suitable to those who are already converted.

 

i would also struggle to describe autechre beyond 'tri repetae' as much more than something you'll have to listen to to get the sense of what's going on - it all (from then on) seems a reaction to the aspect of attempts to criminalise people dancing to repetitive beats which came about in the mid 90's. it's as though Ae will one day release software that will allow you to unjumble their output so it makes more direct sense.

... i've been listening to autechre since the release of 'amber'. i can understand why it's not usually as clearly structured as it once was, and i happen to think it's something of an inside joke on their part. i'm not upset or too challenged by that - just find it has a possibility to be very british humour that altered their direction so clearly and quickly, considering the fuss about repetitive beats that occurred around the same time.

Fair enough. My first was Draft so I'm firmly in new AE camp. I find Amber their most underwhelming album.

 

I just feel the statement about wanting their current output 'unjumbled' makes as much sense as wishing the crossword in the daily paper was printed with the answers already filled in. Sussing out what's going on in a track is half the fun.

i don't want it unjumbled, i am suggesting it might be abstracted in a manner which is processable, to make it a challenge that has taken it beyond what a human could achieve in doing so, or in reversing doing so. as a joke, a dry joke at that, to make a pointed comment towards this issue of legislating towards banning groups gathering and listening to repetitive beats.

 

see sections 63-67 : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criminal_Justice_and_Public_Order_Act_1994

 

also, ANTI : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti_EP which i had a vague idea is a protest against it all

Yeah. But nah.

 

But yeah. I mean flutter as an exercise may have opened something up for them, who knows? I think they just make the music they like, they said stuff about their love of wildstyle graf, like it's words but it's so super abstracted it's hard to make out. And they still did (and do) straight forward nodders like say, Arch Carrier after Anti EP.

 

Also it's interesting cos flutter is probably one of the prettiest, most accessible tunes in their discography imo. If you didn't know the beat doesn't repeat you wouldn't even think about it.

I am a fanboy since their appearance on Ai, and Incunabula changed everything. And I love them even more today. NTS seems remarkable. I'll talk about them even when I'm 90. And nobody cares.

It's virtually impossible to use even a snippet in many cases without getting a copyright strike, depends of course on the publisher. 3 strikes even for non-monetized content and you get your channel suspended. That's why guys like this and Fantano don't even bother risking it with snippets of artists who would probably clear it.

I'm very impressed by the good reception this video is getting on WATMM - def need to check it out now.

I may be in the minority on this one but their output from 1999 to 2005 is my least favorite even though there are some gems in there. From Lego Feet to LP5, and Quaristice to present is pretty dope though. I think it’s about rediscovering lushness from their earlier years.

Quaristice is like their Madlib Beat Konduckta album which is cool.

i think these new NTS sessions are most similar to Quaristice in spirit: sparse, jammy, remixing & further developing previous live material.
