Nice that they followed Richard's lead in that if you buy physical you get WAVs free. The 8 CD box set with the 24-bit WAV is only $15 more than the 24-bit WAV elseq 1-6 is.

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

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

I'm assuming they are naming the songs on the spot after they create them. Hey sean and rob, I'll take a page from the aaa thread and help you out. You have a new song called jules. Hope that helps.

ah cool. Not sure how I missed that! thanks!

that vinyl is tempting, I'm just not sure it would be the same so broken up. Probably going for the wavs myself. But damn that vinyl is tempting...

 

 

jules, i say go for the vinyl. i’ve seen you post about how you wish you had certain ae on teh wax (untilted and/or draft?)...don’t add this beast to that wishlist.

 

 

four of seven and 32a_reflected are the best ae tracks since 1 1 is, imo tbh

 

 

i think the pairing of those two tracks is pretty powerful, especially the long transition between them. top shit

I think you're right alco.

O shit, just now found out about all four sets being available on Bleep. Too bad I'm broke as fuck right now.

 

Guess they figured after the first one leaked they were like, "Fuck it, same thing will happen to the other three. Might as well release everything now."

 

Nah, they knew it would be easy to rip off the stream and it would leak. I guess they waited for the first NTS show to happen before the release so everyone is hyped and pre-orders all four. It's marketing that makes most sense

 

Oh, right. Pre-order. Forgot that bit.

 

But still...hyped

the transitions/transformations on this shit are so incredible to me. the way l3 morphs about 9-10 minutes in and gradually grows into something else is truly magical.

Good call. Also, their ending of the regular rhythms at 16:00 in a kind of "machine suddenly got broken" way (lots of examples for this, e.g. before the ending part of tac lacora). Good Ae tradition, and followed also by those fat tremolo reverb tails, it's just awesome and for sure pretty much hand crafted, cannot be the result of a jamming session.

"machine suddenly got broken" 

 

lol I was thinking about this today, like they accidentally took a parameter to some extreme that caused the patch to crash or break in some way, and the "oops" turned into "ah, whatever, leave it, the fans will love it"

yeah the ending from 16 on is really beautifully crafted.

lol. I was thinking something similar. Like just end it by mashing the dial of the radio up and down the stations. Then I couldn't not picture that sean simpsons gif. Then I imagined them laughing their ass off. But it sounds cool as shit anyway.

 So far the only track that I find a bit challenging and that I'm confused about is bqbqbq.

 

I hear it as a pretty straight triplet groove. To me it sounds like a weirdly filtered EP7 outtake.

 

 

Sounds to me like bnc castl (Outh9x mix)

My favorites are the last four tracks, particularly "north spiral" through "four of seven." The only track I don't like so far is "bqbqbq." It sounds oddly like touchtone phone notes and is kinda irritating. I haven't not liked an AE track in a long time, but otherwise I'm pleased.

"l3 ctrl" is pure sex. That ending, especially after 15:55, is multiple orgasms.

https://autechre.bleepstores.com/release/98673-autechre-nts-session-1

 

total epidermal orgasm

 

If it's the one that was 41 minutes in the 2-hour pre-release "uncut" file, then yes.

yeah that was the part i was referring to here:

 

the way the ping pong tune slowly but steadily transforms from menacing to magestic truely is one the most magnificent parts of this set and some of the best shit they ever done period. A+

 

surely an early highlight. it's so evenly laid out it makes this track seem the most "composed" of the bunch imo.

Maybe we should pace ourselves and only listen to part 1 for the next 6 months, then part 2 etc.

 

 

lol yeah right

haha yeah IN THEORY I'd like to leave at least one NTS for the CD/Vinyl arrival around August.

 

I think this release pattern should work better than elseq. Dropping all five of those in one go was like thumbing through an index that had just thumped on to your desk. One release per week more confidently gives the individual sessions their moment to shine around the water cooler.

 

 

Lol @ water cooler talk.

 

"Hey so did you hear the new Autechre release?"

 

"The what?"

 

"Autechre just released a new 2 hour album"

 

"Oh that weird shit you listen to?"

 

"Yeah it's incredible, there's another 6 hours coming in the next few weeks"

 

"Well yeah I mean it's just random noise, I can see how they could just shit that out"

 

"Ugh..."

I like the track but I can't help imagining them making some long long long distance call.

 

"Fuck, this is a long number!"

      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…
