Why? How?

How? By sean's own consideration according to a conversation that was posted some time ago iirc.

Why? I don't know by what criteria they decide wether it's an ae or a com... time for a new AAA?

Also that channel icon still reminds me of the gescom logo:

So there.

I can see that. The snippets also do sound a bit like Minidisc (or something that could have appeared there), but that was quite the outlier for Gescom, musically. Quite the outlier in general, really.

Autechre are probably the one and only band that I have full faith in always coming up with something that I will (eventually) warm to.

Was listening to some Exai earlier today at the beach (jatavee is such an awesome beach track!) and nodeszh always gets me into this weirdly sexual dance routine (hip thrusting to those recurring twin beats) and these tracks still sound so dam fresh (and short!) after listening to NTS. 

I wonder if they'll continue in the elseq NTS vein or perhaps begin a new "cycle" of sorts? 

Whatever kind of crazy maze they drop us into next, I know I'll eventually be cavorting around in it like a merry loon.

XHK - XH HX / KXH is not even remotely Gescom.. unless it's labelled as such or suggested to be considered part of the Gescom project. XHK purely seems to be its own thing that doesn't fit neatly into pre-existing releases. this is how conspiracy theories come about. people trying to force order and explanation into things which don't necessarily have order or don't make sense. 

flep is good.

"the vids are just a gescom thing, there's no home for them as such so they just ended up on YT, seeing as that's where teh sources came from"

thx for clarifying. gescom it is.

To my ears gescom = autechre, anyway.

= Like, autechre but different autechre, non warp autechre. Maybe they had collaborators in the past but i can’t  hear them in skull snap ep. I mean, the last 3 gescom releases are pure ae imo.

Additional logic is if anyone else would make such a great music I’d know about it by now.

Nope, they're not failing. They are digging deep into musical ground, mining, what's under the basics. There is no return to the surface, because they are exploring the basics of the basics, and have demolished what they already exploited. 

through the use of gen~ they've shed their cocoon of the culture in which they found themselves which was tethered to the abstractions introduced by mass market synth design.  will it be too much freedom to tame, or will it be the cathartic artistic endpoint the music world has always wanted? find out next week on autechre release Z

I agree that skull snap EP is one of the most AE gescom releases to my ears, it was very apparent after a few listens.  if im wrong I want to know who actually made it

what I hope most though is that they dont let what anyone else wants influence what they do because nobody else is on their level to know what's best to go for next anyway

Do you think they'll play live by the end of the year ? We know they have a live set ready, will they choose to release it because of the impossibility to play live in 2020/2021 ? Sean pls, Rob pls...

I'd love some livesets but can't see them releasing anything until after the circuit is done, like usual. 

Yes , maybe they're still working on it and modifying it ? Guess we'll know more by the end of the year !

I also imagine them revisit the new set, with claustrophobic obsession, to the point to transform it into a physical phenomenon capable of permanently influenced the coordinates of time and space.
Beautiful and fatal.
More probably, now free from any contractual urgency, they are spending days playing sonic

honestly I really hope they didn't scrap the set because of how long it's been since the albums dropped. guess we'll see at Primavera?

In the past they carried out sets for at least a couple of years, transforming them, and many ideas, than,  have arrived in albums published further after (Exai, 2013, have inherited a lot from the 2010 tour, and ideas from ae_live fueled elseq and NTS): I think this long break may have really pushed the evolution of the new Live (just think of how the latest dates of Onesix have become enriched with details from the first) and so, from the various segments, new track are born for the next album. Nothing will be lost :catbed:

Still no news anywhere (that I can find) about any plans to play live (understandably)... Really wish we could hear those sets!   ^Especially knowing how the set evolves over time from show to show, I wonder if there's any chance they've been recording live sessions as it transforms. Or if in the end we'll only hear the end result when the shows do happen, and whatever tweaks occurring over this past couple of years will remain a mystery forever. I fantasize about a new NTS style release filled with what would have been the live content...🤤 Ae pls
