Obviously the Ae boys make very subtle music, and (as they themselves have noted) tend to attract a lot of detail-oriented listeners. So I'm curious if anyone else has kept mental note of any subtle / borderline subliminal shit going on in Ae tracks that you think might be worth sharing.
This isn't (intentionally) about really pedantic, boring stuff--but about surprising musical / sonic details that you maybe thought you had to be imagining until you listened to the track in question again. (The basic assumption is just that it's fun to find out about interesting things that we might've missed--especially in music as ingenious as Ae's.)
I'm mainly thinking of how a lot of Autechre tracks will include really short, quiet, one-off voice-like sounds, creating a sort of haunted / "ghost in the machine" vibe. A few examples I had in mind: around 2:00 in recks on, 3:19 in YJY UX, 1:15 in Ipacial Section, the snare in Calbruc that sounds like someone saying "YAH!", etc.
(Sorry if this sort of thing is already covered by another thread, but I'm interested bc I don't think I've seen this explicitly discussed anywhere else.)
