i go to the venue at 5:45am even though the concert doesn't start until 9pm. i've never heard of "the autechre brothers" but if i'm going to a concert i want good seats. inside the venue it turns out

There is nothing more amusing than reading negative comments on autechre. A shining example of relativity: the same qualities considered exemplary by those who love them are used as deplorable facts b

this sort of writing is so weird to me, it demonstrates such a lack of imagination. it's repeated constantly for practically any genre of music that a critic doesn't like or have the patience to try t

The term is beyond stupid but on the other hand we can’t deny strong correlation between iq, creativity and taste in music.

citing abstracts isn't really helping. either way neither the abstracts nor the full article by bonetti and costa make any mention of control for socioeconomic status, which correlates with both IQ and level of education. therefore it's very likely to also be predictive of your cultural capital and thus also your taste in music. am not saying this is the case, but that most of the above research and reasoning is flawed. the last article mentions a similar thought

Instead, what we see is that classical music may just be a proxy for social class and education. Highly educated people may be more likely to listen to classical music, but obviously listening to different types of music is not a shortcut to a college education.

I always got the feeling that Autechre hated music.

When Oversteps came out and I was listening to it my father walked into the room while known(1) was playing and quipped, "your room sounds like a fucking opium den." He then shut the door and walked out.

"Although Artificial Intelligence's sleevenotes had insisted that the new electronica 'cannot be described as soulless or machine made', what's most interesting about Autechre's work is the absence of heart and humanity, the way that the listener's impulse to forge an emotional connection simply ricochets off the impenetrable, gnomic surfaces of their sound. At times you can't help wonder if the 'aut' in their name stands for autism: listening, the mind's eye conjures up a vision of two small boys surrounded by tekno toys, lost in their own little pre-verbal world of chromatics and texture and contour."
