elyc6 0nset off elseq 2, on headphones at night. it's just
under half an hour so strap in, will probably tell you if yr
into the newer stuff. nts sessions is brilliant and maybe
more accessible despite its length, gonk steady one off
volume 1 might be my fave ae track since iera

Goes to show how differently we all react to their stuff, I
wouldn’t have recommended what belb did, but I love
everything they do anyway! Easiest stuff is definitely Sign
and Plus imo. Elseq can be harsh but has some of the most
beautiful tracks they’ve done. NTS sessions are fantastic.

The Gonk tracks are fan faves. Dunno why but they’re not
my standouts from NTS.

So what was the last stuff you checked out, Exai?

Elseq 4 is insanely good and freefold casual is bafflingly
beautiful. Latentcall is good old ae and rocks.

Gosh I’m not helping at all.

belb knows whats up

gonk steady one

If you're at all inclined towards pure ambient music
all end is my favorite track that they've ever done.
(well from, Sean's twitch Q&As, I can tell you that is track
is actually pure Rob Brown). But it's a headphones track and
best on LSD.

elyc6 0nset off elseq 2

that i have to read this three times to parse out whether or
not this is a single track name or, like, onset off album
querky

these freaking track names. these album names.
autechre's reign of terror has gone on for too long. we were
all with them on names like "cichli suite" but at this point
their track names are worse than the smile sessions

the only cure is for autechre to be forced -- under threat
of mites -- to compose an album around twelve (12) track
titles i create; album title to be some debated fusion
results

i'll probably be a bit bummed out like when the blamstrain
guy asked if he could remix one of my tracks and... yes? and
then... oh this sounds nothing like my track?

so we might need another album to fix their music too

Conformal Attire


 

offline EpicMegatrax from Greatest Hits on 2023-02-15 02:15 [#02625268]
Points: 22902 Status: Regular



do i offer notes on how i picture the title resolving? take
the title and run with it however; good enough really, but

conformal symmetry, patterns repeating at different levels
of scale. conformal itself, similar implications itself, but
more generally mathematical. in particular, elbow patches
seem somewhat conformal, yes? but then also, most people
will just go the word "conform" but yes, conformal attire,
have a think on that

but then in my head i'm thinking of the first track of
this fine album, "wearing old armani"


 

offline EpicMegatrax from Greatest Hits on 2023-02-15 03:30 [#02625272]
Points: 22902 Status: Regular



so... that one's not bad, right? i relish making up names
and titles; can i make the other eleven even better? but
that first one just arrived with the mail, so to speak. i
went off and did something else and put no particular
conscious thought into it, and... "Conformal Attire" my
brain says, sort of with the same autonomic response you'd
experience when your phone boops a message. so as much as
i'd like to say i can just go extra. science. and make the
rest even better -- well, they probably will be, but i'm
simply not in charge of that. i just answer the phone calls

notes: do your worst to orbital plz


 

offline EpicMegatrax from Greatest Hits on 2023-02-15 04:46 [#02625274]
Points: 22902 Status: Regular



insane as it is, i'd like to clarify the vibe on first
track, Conformal Attire: "wearing old armani," another
clothes reference, right, didn't mean it. arm, oh, didn't
mean that either. the track more popped into my head
because... now that i think about it, i think this was kind
of a reunion album these guys did after ten years? and just
some good old-skool, not basic but easy to digest, make you
move, acid from back when, wear those conformal patches with
pride; make people jealous even

then after a straightforward banger, throw orbital into a
blender based on an esoteric physics concept.

i'm not sure if this is how they normally structure their
albums

> Oscillon & Off & Pwn

i said it to myself in my hed as "pawn" for years and i know
that's wrong. oscillon and off and wrong. it pulls you
toward it. but if pwn is too un-autechre i could concede to
Oscillon and Off and Ot

12 -- random idea -- they adopt the personas of MCs Rob
Booth and Sean Brown, respectively, and then once the beat
is set, go off into separate rooms and write verses about
the other guy, in the voice of the other guy, and we get
Rob's best Sean impression rapping about Sean and vice
versa. but it's probably better to just write one together
about autechre

yes, this fits

fits with AE's whole predilection to... generative patches,
generative synthesis

except, instead of max/msp, they've programmed a fan on the
internet to generate an autechre album tracklisting. kudos
