In the last two decades there seems to be a recurring trend in the use of certain trax that have a pronounced use of bass synths in lower octave C#. Pretty much starting from EP7 all the way up to NTS.

Here are the trax in particular that come to mind:

ccec
squeller (?)
outpt
vi scose poise
1 1 is (?)
[halfway point in all AE_LIVE sets]
acid mwan idle

Okay, so there's a 12-year gap in between in that list. But maybe I missed one or two.

Anyway, as anyone else noticed this? And if I missed any trax that fit the description above, I encourage you to add them.

I have no absolute pitch... never noticed anithying like it.

But... there are only twelve notes. It's just a case of probability perhaps...

I thought this topic was about someone making Autechre tracks using the C/C++ programming variant

As beautiful as the meme is alas the programming language is pronounced 'C-sharp' too:


The name "C sharp" was inspired by the musical notation where a sharp indicates that the written note should be made a semitone higher in pitch.[35] This is similar to the language name of C++, where "++" indicates that a variable should be incremented by 1 after being evaluated. The sharp symbol also resembles a ligature of four "+" symbols (in a two-by-two grid), further implying that the language is an increment of C++

i think that image depicts an alliance between musicians and programmers in calling it 'C Sharp'.

You're right, saw it as an arm wrestle rather than a 80s action hero bro handshake !

serious response: It's a tribute to early Deftones, Isis and other bands who tune down. Sean told me while we were listening to Mudvayne the other day.

 

 

joke response: I figure they don't really "select" a key to work in, especially these days, I'd say they're more likely to just mess around with / generate notes until they find something good to work with. If anything, only 7 tracks in C# is rare, especially compared to nu-metal bands.

The boys covering Terry Riley would be something.
