I thought it was real interesting to discover in the New York Times interview that M4 Lema took around 3 months to make (tried to quote it here but can’t read the article anymore without subscribing) - and that it begun quite differently to how it ended up. No wonder that piece feels like an endless tapestry of details and sonic hints to discover. It’s amazing!

NY Times interview with Ae abut SIGN. There are some pearls in it...

Hey, wait, what?? What is Sean doing here in Norway? Hiking in the mountains? Fishing? Rock climbing? Scouting after new venues for holding gigs in? Guess we'll never find out 🤔

Isn't that where Squarepusher broke his wrist?

Stay safe Sean!

Maybe he goes there as its dark in winter like their live shows.

Oh, I didn't know about this story. What happened to Tom? 

Well, the winter and the dark polar nights isn't over us quite yet 😄 Autumn is in full gear here though, cold, grey and rainy, so not so unlike Manchester in that regard, I guess! lol

Pretty solid review that one, I think we’ll be quoting it for years. Excerpts/summarises the collaborative/artistic process, a bit on SIGN, and responding to ‘the critics’. I like how Pareles gently refers to the obligatory generative question as ‘some electronic musicians’ and Sean immediately confronts it. The answer info all complements well.

SEAN BOOTH It’s strangely jarring. It’s sort of too real. All this Covid stuff has put me in a really different place from where I was when we were just compiling it. Back then we were saying, “This is totally right.” But now I’m wondering if it’s too right. And I’m really feeling a bit self-conscious if I’m being totally honest. It’s difficult to listen to because it’s too emotionally resonant. I was going for making something pure and new and sort of surprising, and now I’ve ended up with something that’s almost predictable. So I’m reluctant to play it too much because I feel like that place it puts me in is perhaps a little bit too cathartic.

@SEAN BOOTH

I agree, listened to it several times on digital. I'll put the vinyl into my shelf and open it 2022.

 

I weirdly have the same feeling for the noise stuff i did during covid.

Thank you anyways.
