Favourite hidden details / layers in aphex tracks

Recommended Posts

I love the fact that with a lot of aphex's music, there are hidden layers and tiny details that you discover over time that you never heard originally, what are some of your favorite example of this?

 

I'll go first: the hihats at 3:00 in ziggomatic 17 that took me a while to realize were actually playing a melody as well as the rhythm.

And the scream at 0:35 in 54 cymru beats that always makes me laugh now.

If you listen hard enough you can hear the sound of the ocean when playing his music through a conch shell

I've always called it in my mind "the hi hat game"

Hi hat line that starts at 1.34 and culminates collapsing on itself at 1.59. Genius

Neat

 

Also I've just realized that the filtered white noise in The Waxen Pith actually has changing pitch, playing a melody that's adds a LOT more emotion to the track, neat
