I'm not sure how, but end all is a sickeningly depressing track. It's like the sound of the world ending or something.

 

to me the only depressing thing about it is that it's probably the least inspired thing they ever released. ever.

 

(sorry, luv u ae :( )

 

 

Melve tho?

 

i fucking adore melve and the whole of lp5. it is one if not the fav of mine. the very least you can say about melve, even if you don't dig it, is that it was fresh (as in: not sampled from another track) and it has more than 1 notes (yeah a chord is technically more than one note, bite me).

 

 

While I wouldn't say that all end has any particular musical variety, there's certainly more than just the one chord. All throughout the track you have a slow, deep, rumbling bassline and higher treble melodies that fizzle in and out of existence right at the fringe of the track. It's certainly more than just one chord, although granted it's not much more than that.

 

yeah there sure are some intricacies to it and i do get the idea behind minimalism. actually i enjoyed pretty much all their tracks with a rather minimalistic approach so far like perlence subrange, eastre, TBM... fuck pendulu casual is maybe my fav track off elseq. this one... yeah it's not even a bad ambient track in itself. nothing particularly special but it sure does have impact and well... it's a nice chord lol. obviously it features some interesting emotional ambiguity. but: it's still literally just the ending of an older track stretched out period. i have a hard time getting over that fact i don't feel very good about it myself but yeah, that's just how it is atm. the hv moda reprise on 1 at least had a new twist to it and it wasn't a freaking hour long. it's just disappointing as an "end all" to me. if this was academia i guess there could be points made about them deconstructing themselves as bladelores was some kinda emo hit off exia etc. ... but yeah whatevs.

 

hearing 4 from beginning with cans. frane is pretty fucking cool.

 

 

But now imagine yourself hearing these whole 8 hrs as one chunk. And now imagine it's only 7 hrs, only that the last chord of the last bit of the last hour is stretched over another hour. I think that's pretty cool

 

yeah will definitely give the whole thing a spin in one go next opportunity (weekend). there might be interesting dynamics hidden there fo sho.

mirrage into column just now was very nice... VERY fucking nice.

six of eight really clicking for me now...I've liked it for a while but now its all I want..when I don't have headphones or my wearable speaker (Sony) I crave it. I just want to hear this fucking trac

We'll I disagree. I think it has revolutionised music. Music itself has been handed a new set of parameters.

Basically if I was still theoretically young and still theoretically traveling to the moon every now and then (alas, those days are behind me), I'd start t1a1 when peaking, making all end the perfect comedown music.

 

I dunno. I didn't know what to think at first, but so far I like it. I doubt I'd listen to it all as active music, but in the background when working on stuff, this is lush. I really like subtle minimalism--in technojargon--the chord changes and the granular synthesis/timestretching bringing out little harmonic subcomponents that come and go--in poetic jargon, it's hypnagogic and dreamy.

 

But I'm the kind of person who will listen to japanese minimalist releases of like two beating sine waves, so by that kind of minimalist standard, this is busy af.

"although granted it's not much more than that." that's just not true. There is that drone-chord sitting on top of everything, but there is much more happening than just that. the track has few a distinct phases with different melodies playing slightly beneath the drone, accompanied by that tim hecker'ish bassy thing.

 

i'm totally in love with this track. it sounds so incredibly rich and saturated with beauty and all the good stuff. it actually sounds like a giant black marble ball that is poured with an everflowing stream of honey. not really sure, why i'm so emotional right now lol

Oh dear. How could I have got this so badly wrong?

 

Wait, I know... I should never have listened to the live stream on low quality speakers in the first place. I didn’t listen live to 1 and 2.

 

The truth is, all end is magnificent! A majestic behemoth of a thing with sub-bass to die for, a subtle, rolling melody and far more nuance than could ever be apparent on that stream. I’ll be falling asleep (or into a trance) to this many many times in the future.

 

Oh, and column thirteen is one of the single most beautiful Ae tracks I’ve ever heard.

I'm really glad they ended it like they did.

Translation work is not the topic to be discussed here. Follow the rules. I demand a little more discipline.

Was expecting an elseq5-esque comedown and we got it. Probably not as essential to me as 1-3, but I do especially love Shimripl casual. Just ducking off to grab a coffee before proceeding into all end for the first time.

 

Also expect insta bans to anyone who compared this to 2001 (or similar), made multiple references to gonk or ambient whinging or believed "all end" meant retirement. Shit posting criteria right there.

 

All in all, definitely a landmark ae release. For now, I'm happy calling NTS3 and e0 my have Session and track respectively, but looking forward to exploring this in total now.

 

Thanks Autechre! I doubt I've listened to a single artist more in a month than I did in Aepril. Thank you thank you thank you! And aussie tour to come!

did anyone heard the cat in all end?

 

lol

 

... yeah it's opening up quite nicely on headphones right now, at least there are permanent subtle shifts in intensity and the drones / bass vary quite a little. it's actually hard not to improvise yourself some phantom melodies to your inner hear while listening, to the point it becomes hard to tell which is which. 13 min in...

 

edit: the shrimp is a monster. might end up liking 4 more overall than 3.

@Hk47

I will spank your little male manga loving arse until it is all pink and raw to retain discipline (if necessary)

 

Oh, don't tease me... I'll never shut up about it. 

=P

 

Fuck I love what they've turned spTh into with debris_funk. It's so incredibly menacing.

And placing it after the beautiful bqbqbq... 

The placement and flow of all of these songs across all of the sessions is magnificent. It's mind-blowing that they were able to do such a thing across all 8 hours of music...

It wasn't weird when pegging was brought up?

(not that there's anything wrong with pegging... personally, I'd rather be DP'd by Rice and Sugar)

But spanking is where you draw the line?

=P

 

l3 ctrl... each time I listen to it, it seems to open up more and more... it's crazy how dense some of these tracks are.

Fuck, alright, yeah... I bought up double penetration... I need to close the internet...

14mins into all end, I think this suits them handsomely. Courageous way to end the release, glad they took the opportunity. Lots going on behind the wall of feed.

35 min, somehow starting to hear cantus in memoriam benjamin britten in there... i am glad i am high right now.


Is it too early to make the best track poll for this session? I feel like this one is much more easily digestible.

 

sure go ahead, easy one :)

      So this might not be the right place to type this out so if the mods feel like this should be deleted, no prolem.
      I have a question about Bleep.
      If a product ships, do you get an e-mail saying that it's on the way to you? 
      I pre-ordered something and on the day it said it was going to ship I didn't get any dispatch e-mails or nothing. Is that normal? 
      This is was my first time ordering something physical on Bleep after avoiding it for years. Should I order more stuff on their site in the future or should I stay away from them since the general opinion on Bleep here is pretty negative.
      Thanks for answering and if this isn't the appropriate place to post this feel free to delete this.

      Scene 1:
       
      we start out in some kind of next-dimensional waiting room with a jumble of objects existing in a state of flux. It’s kind of a paradoxical thing, like chaotic equilibrium. there are platonic solids bouncing into globs on non-newtonian fluids, arcs of plasma jetting about, old People magazines, etc. it is here that the the first ones, the ineffable, antediluvian Great Dyad of rob and sean call their home, their unspoken machinations manifesting as great ripples and rumbles through the medium, lush pads and sick beats, the 2 elements from which all other things spring forth. the aloof, stoned gaze of rob and the piercing chav stare of sean settle on a single planet orbiting rogue paralel suns, somewhere in the intergalactic medium. this is planet known as Planet Gonk.
       
      Scene 2:
       
      on exoplanet gonk 3a5 129308 there is a club 500 kilometers under the sea.
      we descend through the hazy atmosphere and the greenish world-ocean is revealed, we descend further, under the waves, to Club Splesh.
      shit is poppin off here.
      Mature Audiences Only.
      Agent Cooper is on the scene
      “Diane, I’ve just arrived at an establishment of ill-repute—
      there is a robot with a big like jangly metal dick on stage just getting slapped all over the place.
      like some giant mech with a big fuckin weird silicon robot dick just floppin it around.
      like slapping it in a concrete hall, like some crazy flep the dolphin shit happening in the club.
      in the underwater club.”
      the scene is mental. Wiley is DJing, Flowdan is MCing. just absolute mayhem
      people are doing poppers and touching jellyfishes and stuff.
      a squid makes out with a Dyson space heater.
      Flep the dolphin does tricks (like flips and shit but also sexual?) for the robot man.
      a calculator finishes suckin him off.
      the robot man cums.
      BLISS
       
      Scene 3:
       
      okay so now we're listening to the soundtrack to "GANG FIGHT 2999", setting: ‘Techre City
      it’s like a gigantic icosahedron of a city, all floating above the ocean and shit
      all black pipes and dirty streets branching out everywhere like fucking crazy
       
      the Casual's are encroaching on the Gonk Boy's turf
      Gonk Boys pullin up
      using pirated cyberweapons
       
      the casuals outnumber gonks, but the gonks are bigger
      The Gonks have protective fur coats with +2 charm boost
       
      the Casuals employ fierce hi frequency sonic weapon emitters
      the Gonk Boys have powerful backpack woofer blasters
      the Casuals, in their numbers and ferocity are overwhelming the Gonks
      but the Gonks won't go down without a fight
       
      so the gang war has been raging on
      OH shit! RIP gonks, you think.
      but the Gonk Boys are still hanging in actually
       
      you thought they died
       
      but in one insane sub bass attack they fuckin WIPED out the casuals
      they unleashed their secret weapon:
      GATED REVERB GUN
       
      cut: we are now 33 years in the future
      The Gonks and the Casuals unified into one cartel and took over 'Techre city
      not long ago this planet was ruled by dolphins and mechs
      Now there is a filthy cabal of genocidal gangsters in control of the polyhedron
      watch them float over the global ocean, sending down plasma arcs to terrorize the unsuspecting denizens
      Unleashing vaporized high potency psychedelics and dissociative drugs into the atmosphere
      the populace is at their will
       
      Chairman Elyc9 is a miser. He rose through machiavellian tactics.
      He now punishes the world that spurned him as a child
       
      Uniting the violent underground through mutually beneficial heists and takedowns he quickly was able move up in 'Techre's parliament
      Spread the message: the dolphins and mechs are not our friends
      We must cleanse the global ocean of their idiocy
       
      Scene 4:
       
      Deep down in the ocean
      Corporal Flep is dreaming up a strategy
      The resistance has been hit hard
      But Flep wishes for the days of dancing and having casual sex with robots on the ocean floor to return
      In an old half dome ruin on the ocean floor, covered in coral and kelp, the bladelores project is being conceived
      the dolphins on one side, the mechs on the other.
      they are sharing ideas through bubble ring glyphs
      how can they restore peace to this shattered world?
      schematics made of seaweed and stabilized bubbles are created
      to unify their thoughts they move to the inner sanctum
      and begin a ritual of blowing bubbles and subtly sending electrical currents through the water
      slowly an old god
      starts to rise from the sand at the oceans floor
      it is a god made of shimmering, rippling mercury
      at times random pillars seem to form as appendages and then collapse back into the rising columnal giant
      the monks of the eastre order hit their bells
      the dolphins and mechs vibrate in ecstasy as the VeKos, the avatar of eastre, arises.

       
      Scene 5:
       
      in the laboratory of Turbile Robotics manufacturing ramps up with new speed
      Everything must be stress tested
      no piece of squishyware can go un poked
      every bioluminescent tendril must writhe
      all cubes must be stomped upon
      that's what makes a Turbile a Turbile™
      The workers dine on shimripls (a type of very gay shrimp)
      Turbile robotics employees can expect a minimum of 17 shimripls a day
      they are paid in shimripls, which is a privilege in a world where if you don't gonk hard enough you'll basically just get killed
      Oh lord what is this? someone just introduced a trojan into Turbile manufacturing's mainframe
      the technician inspects the terminal
      "Spl9.ramshooter.b" ?
       
      machinery is being repurposed
      something is being built
      the plant is creating strange, incomprehensible objects
      it used to make cubes
       
      now the virus has taken control and the organic synthesis machines are making unsound hybrids of silicon and flesh
      and all of these creations fall down into the the unfathomably deep cistern of rejects, the glos ceramic
      a cylindrical hole bored deep into the planet, so large it has developed its own ecosystem in the darkness and filth
      the heaps of AI chips form autonomously organizing beings made of trash and rotting flesh and wires
      these new beings know nothing other than that the great shute in the sky gives them garbage, their lifeblood
      so they raise up their appendages in praise
      revel in the garbage, make love in the garbage, do their taxes in the garbage
       
      Scene 6:
       
      back in 'techre city Bill Evans plays the piano
      at a slimey gonk establishment
       
      Thom Yorke gets on stage
      by now he has become a kind of hairy skeleton
      he makes high pitched wails into a canister, on all fours
      he has learned the art of bone origami
      and he is folding himself up into an ever smaller thing
      eventually he is so small he is not visible, which is part of the art of it, you see
      yet he still is able to wail
      Bill Evans dies of many years of cocaine use
       
      Scene 7:
       
      The aftermath of a mass culling of technicians suspected as double agents for the Dolphin-Mech Alliance
      Chairman Elyc6 has dealt with the turbile problem, or at least he thinks he did
      so we looked at the data
      The truth is, Chairman Elyc9 doesn't really care about purging the planet of dolphins and mechs.
      the war was a ruse
      he baited the enemy into summoning eastre,
      the primeval power at the center of the planet, he wishes to harness its powere
       
      planet gonk was once at peace
       
      long ago, the dolphins were sucking robot penis and all was well
      but desperate times call for desperate measures
      the garbage hybrids congeal into a chain tall enough to reach the ceiling of the great cystern
      as the liquid god of eastre penetrates the corroded, leaking bottom of the cystern
       
      an unholy union is formed
       
      The Gonk Casuals must be stopped.
       
      Scene 8:
       
      we now shift deep under the garbage, into the dark saline sea that lines the deepest trenches under the global ocean
      this is the primordial soup from whence it all came
      in a place darker than vantablack, conscious ions flicker with intent
       
      before the gonks, before the dolphins, before the casuals and mechs, there was only this place
      a place of stillness punctuated by rippling chains of actions that had no beginning and no end
      the creatures of planet gonk arose from this place
       
      and it is this place that will bring the planet back to equilibrium
       
      Scene 9:
       
      the Great Dyad regards the goings on with detached amusement.
       
      Sean: M8 this shit is mental. Did you see Thom Yorke do that? fuck me that’s brilliant.
      Rob: Check out that Dolphin down there, he’s got a laser gun.
      Sean: (tokes spliff) fookin incredible aye
      Rob: aye there’s like some kinda war or battle going on innit
      Sean: lush, hey check out this new patch i’ve been working on
       
      ...
      in a twist of events, the Dolphin-Mechs lose control of the Avatar of Eastre, VeKos, and it takes control of the garbageFleshKin, unifying them into a writhing tentacle of wires and organs emerging from the core of Planet Gonk to strike ‘Techre city from the sky. the icosahedron shatters into a trillion shimmering shards and the city falls into the churning world-ocean.
      the casualties of the great conflict are immense
      calculators go instinct. Corporal Flep is valiantly killed in the line of duty when he impales Chairman Elyc6 with his snout (he duct-taped a knife to it). RIP.
      the Gonk Boys and the Casuals are forgotten. the ocean swallows up all things. there is only wreckage, and the mindless, waving tentacles of eastre protruding from the sea like living monoliths. Who knows what lies in the future for this ruined planet? but for now, all end.
       
      And thus concludes the story of Planet Gonk…
