Autechre - SIGN 16.10.20


Recommended Posts

Do you guys remember Sean mentioning importing the Max/msp system in M4L for remixing purpose ? If I understand correctly the new material is also produced in M4L/Ableton right ?

there was definitely discussion of them using M4L from Max to Live for audio mixing, iirc. i assume it was from the Twitch chat?

play this loud. new listens show the quieter details buttressing the chords/pads. very much like their middle era stuff, like others have said. i think some of the simplicity in the harmonies is deceptive for a first listen

I'd be interested to know how those who didn't care for oversteps feel about this one. 
I'm not saying Oversteps and Sign are cut from the same cloth, and I definitely see them very differently. 

Bullseye! I didn't care for Oversteps much and it really feels like Oversteps 2.0 with variables -- not by sound/composition but as a stylistic move, even this "jams to songs" transition.

MoT was certainly a more raw & welcomed collection to me, tho sorta mishmashed together very inconsistently (feels like the most ragged Ae release ever), and i hope for something similarly drastic to happen with the green one.

I remember, and i got a word from an unknown source that Ae agreed to remix Sophie. Probably other remixes are in queue.

Don't believe that they would use M4L for their own stuff, i mean what's the practical reason to switch from Max? I think it works worse in M4L and gives them nothing new tool-wise

^the way i understood (assumptions based on what was actually said, somebody dredge that up pls) it at the time (been months now and my memory is shit so grain of salt here) was that they were 99% in Max still of course, but piping the audio channel/s via M4L into Ableton and using Live as a 'mixing desk' essentially. which Live is very good at being, and possibly more user friendly than Max (have very little experience in Max tho so dunno)

Imagine the package art using some kind of gloss/matte dynamic as design feature like Chiastic Slide. Like there's more to it that we haven't seen from a tiny image on a computer screen. But I also fantasized about this for Exai art which was embossed, similar thing anyway.

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

Can you all imagine if the next release is called 'OFF' would that mark the end of their max exploration? 'SIGN—OFF' 

OR maybe signing off the way they've been going about things in max - and so ready to introduce something new? 

I say this because Sean mentioned that they 'revamped' their system but how do we know that's what we're hearing on SIGN? and what we're going to hear on the next 'green' release?

Again I say this because - isn't that something they're known for - like with Exai... Which was worked on years before release... Right? 

I also thought of this because though I really enjoy listening to SIGN - it doesn't really sound like a 'revamped system' to me tbh... Because elseq, AE_LIVE and NTS sound quite similar to SIGN (in many ways)

... Maybe the 'revamp' is yet to come? Or might just be wishful thinking. What do you all think?

Maybe they’re signing off for good? Or maybe it’s the first part of a prince covers trilogy “sign” “o” “the times” and we haven’t noticed these tunes are all prince song reworks. I can’t wait to hear U Got Tha Look
