So, after you all have partially digested NTS 1-4: Do you have favourite moments, overshadowind... anything?

Mine is:

tt1pd @ 15:20 till end. Shit totally went down, that harsh, metallic sounds leave the stage and we get a clear impression of that awesome, warbling, pulsating chaos beats... thing ... heartbeats of the Leviathan. And that beautiful sawtooth drone/pad appears. I love the vibes here. Destruction of the earth theme.

yes, tt1pd, in that moment, is a catastrophic shipwreck: the Kraken collides with Moby Dick, my ears play the part of Achab.

 
I find also immense 13ctrl, at 19:29 ... the crescendo is about to reach its climax, the long notes seem about to collapse, sometimes they come out of tone, like a train that derails, and the percussion, exactly that moment , change: the timbre, for a few bars, seems to change into a synth. Then the percussion stops, second crescendo is coming, this time supported by an irregular structure: here I definitely have the impression of falling into the belly of Autechre.
 
I'm slowly getting interested in the less conspicuous pieces: Sinistral AB ... after a couple of minutes' preparation, at 02:26 there's that sequence of accents: it's like opening a bright window, a sort of sonic gnosis . Too bad that the song did not develop those notes, but even so, the passage is very suggestive.

"g 1 e 1" for me. The way it opens like a melancholy lonely string and that meandering sound from some of the live sets burrows its way in and clears the air. I've used it so many times after a long hike up a hill overlooking the city I live in, and it perfectly compliments that experience. 

 

There are so many extraordinary moments on the set, though. I can't wait to get my physical media and play those (complete with surface noise) for my friends.

I have a similar yearning for the sinistrailAB air excursion to expand far beyond the 12 second blessing we were granted. The way it rapidly dissipates into wetgelis is absolutely fine, but if there's a quadrange-esque outtake from whatever module was driving those final fizzes, I would dearly love to hear it. Sob/Rean pls

Yeah, as previously discussed the clown horns from 7:31 of gonk steady one keep me coming back.

 

Still love 00:48 in Dummy Casual, when everything drops out, then this camp idiotic waffling takes it up. Clown ska funk.

 

Those snarly warbling tesla flares from tt1pd descend with such dynamism.

 

The sequencing is a highlight throughout (on digital anyway). Violvoic into sinistrail and shimripl casual into all end are some of the best examples.

I've totally 'slept' on this track. Beautiful timbre and melody.

Fuck yeah! Somehow missed on including this one, proper acid splutter and that hiss heals

Couldn't decide on which part of the track to highlight, perhaps prefer 01:20 when claps unite

Yeah, proper Ae sanity. But I don't like that clown laughing at me all the time.

 

Have not yet found my love for 7:31 gonk steady one, many people seem to like that garbagemx super reverb thing...
