having already taken the path of "narrative" composition, which changes and transforms continuously, probably what they want to do now is supposed to be a thing that takes place within a defined structure. It could be the necessary way to put out this kind of tracks.

It's a bit of return to the roots I think. The tracks on the Lego Feet album don't really have a narrative strcture but are more like static patterns in the way that classic techno tracks work also. The '90s IDM then was more structure oriented.

with Oversteps we have a Terminator that moves to Leipzig in the 1500s to hunt down Bach. 

🤣 amazing description of Oversteps! Love it

And despite earlier saying i preferred 1/2 of SIGN the 2nd half has really clicked with me today, sounded beautiful earlier driving in the rain.

Now got that feeling where I don't want to listen to anything else but worried about overplaying it, which is always a good SIGN that I'm falling in love hard for an album! ❤

driving in the rain.

was listening to si00 driving in the rain late last night and it was so lush at one point I forgot I was driving and hit a huge embankment, I was airborne for a good solid sec and while I was, I said to myself, PLS.

So yea, great in the rain album, would repeat!

Have done two full listens through the FLAC files, it's definitely different, more mellow, more positive, and warmer than their other recent releases.  I'm into it.

From Bleep:

 

"Instant download of the following tracks with all pre-orders:

'M4 Lema'

'F7'

'si00'

'esc desc'

'au14'

'Metaz form8'

'sch.mefd 2'

'gr4'

'th red a'

'psin AM'

'r cazt'

Full release delivered on release date: 10.16.20"

 

Instant download of the whole album now and "full release" delivered on release date? It could either be a mistake or additional material is coming on the 16th...

It has that exact same text and format on all pre-orders so it's just the script of the website, as they released them all after stream. Not sure why they don't just "release" it as usual though.

And we know there's 2xlp and 1xcd

(I would like to be wrong about this)

I suspect that too: Sean said "an album is ready for 2020 ... well, actually 2", which could refer to the two LPs (Sean's humor often plays on taking things literally, pointing them right to what they are), but the fact that only one sign by now appears (  ) encourages me a lot in predicting the missing sign.

Then, if Nostradamus predicted a second sign, and considering that the prophecy of colors has come true for now, I don't see why I shouldn't believe that the rest will also happen.

I did notice that my download was tagged as "Pre-Order" which kinda indicates that there may be some other version?

So you get all the tracks now if you buy on Bleep?

Seeing a lot of people talking about hearing the album, was that all PIR8 or can you get it legit right now?

Yeah, it's instant download for all pre-orders, including the digital "pre-order".

Perhaps if the bright orange of the SIGN cover depicts the oozing cheese within, then the green album promises some hearty, nourishing vegetables.

Maybe some nice crunchy beets

of course the analogy isn't one-to-one with AE+Max vs pianist+piano, but the original quote also is a touch of a reduction as well. but it gets the idea across and that's all that matters. ...so yeah, most of their stuff couldn't be transcribed simply to a piano, obviously. don't think that's the idea. the author of that interview/review writeup was making very clear, it's that all their music is based in electronica and specifically hip hop. so based on evocative textural recreations and creations and sampling of sounds. 

but the point i was trying to make, i guess i wasn't clear, was they're still separated from the sounds being created in a very similar way to the 'dumb piano' metaphor. unless they're fingerpicking a guitar or handdrumming on some tablas or dragging a bow across a cello string, they're also very separate from the sound. no matter how much work they've done in software/hardware to craft a sound or arrangement or sequence, they're very 'separate' from the sounds. this isn't bad, obv, just goes against their own point imo.

obviously what sean meant is he's hanging out with sound, they're relaxing together and just being in the moment together. 

with piano this is hard bc it's very uptight, just refuses to chill unless it's had some sustains on that particular evening.
