Great inventive IDM or geeky mindless crap?

I say the former, but i'm a Warp-head...

dog latin, Monday, 23 April 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

I got one of their CD's because they were critically acclaimed, but only listened to it once. I guess I just don't like their style.

Bleep bloop, blip blip, bloop bloop. I borrowed an Autechre CD and I too found that the hype didn't live up to the bleeps. On the other hand, I heard Autechre being used as background music for a film at an art installation, and it seemed to work there. By itself, though? Can't see it. Maybe I'll grow into it.

Sean Carruthers, Monday, 23 April 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Er, rather, bleeps didn't live up to the hype. Time for me to go home, I think.

Sean Carruthers, Monday, 23 April 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

mindless crap is what my dad said after listening to a bit of LP5 but for me it's great background music and also when your fucked up...

Actually, I really like the idea of hype not living up to bleeps.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 23 April 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

personally, subjectively, they were brilliant on _tri repetae_. almost a perfect piece of work, i think, with all of the more traditionalist melodic bits of their first two albums clashing with the beginnings of the DSP shitstorm that was to come on later releases. everything since has been hit and miss, with even the better releases (lp5, ep7, envane) having tracks that just sound like 'generic autechre.'

as for "inventive," well, the IDM list be damned, they pretty much defined how IDM has sounded for the past 4 years or so by dint of every semi-talented derivative jacking their style (phoenicia, entire schematics roster, everything i've heard on musik aus strom, especially the horribly derivative but not even close to the mark flagship duo funkstorung, etc, etc). their fault or their misfortune, you be the judge.

your null fame, Monday, 23 April 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

I quite like Autechre. Chiastic Slide and Tri Repetae are great. And the earlier more ambient stuff from Amber and Incunabula is quite nice too. I haven't been that into the shift toward more digital, more abstract, less beat oriented music in their last few releases. I like that they're evolving, I'm just not too keen on the result.

bnw, Monday, 23 April 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

I've always found them strangely dissapointing. I do like most of Tri Repeate, but I find Amber dull (hard for me to imagine how so many consider that classic) and the post-Tri stuff I've heard generally just slides by me. I ADMIRE what they're doing with the thick sounds on EP7 -- it sounds very complicated and new -- but it's just not enjoyable listening for me. I keep it around, though, because I figure some day it just might click. But for now I'm calling Ae a dude.

Mark, Monday, 23 April 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

I would say Classic based on Tri Repetae and Chiastic Slide, but I think they make more of a Search and Destroy kind of band than a Classic Or Dud. They have some fantastic material and a chunk of not so fantastic. To my mind, the problem with them is that when you first hear their sound, it blows your ass to the back wall, but a monrh later it doesn't sound nearly as good, especially after you hear all the shameless imitators mentioned above? But then, is it their fault that it's easy to do a third rate imitation of their sound? And does that irrevocably alter how we hear the songs themselves?

Dave M., Tuesday, 24 April 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Classic for the first four albums. 'Amber' is my favorite (not dull at all, it's perfect twilight music). Again a band who release too much stuff and you start to lose interest (and I won't start on all the 2nd rate copycats). But the first four are just perfect and all have a different atmosphere. Also have become victim to what someone on the Hips,head,heart-thread called the Kraftwerk-don't-have-a-soul fallacy. Autechre always struck me as one of the great soul bands, they always try to home in on a very peculiar sense of melancholy (fading of a beautiful day, the sadness of machines) or nostalgia (a lot of times the music shimmers with the feeling of being a child again). Any band that does that is Classic in my book.

Listening to the last strains of Cichli on Chiastic Slide as the sun comes up is awesome...

If you look up Autechre in the dictionary you'll find the answer

K-reg, Tuesday, 24 April 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

always admired what autechre were doing (the sheer bloody-mindedness reminded me of the fall) but could never love it. just too dry.

but in the last 6 months i've begun to change my mind, and i'm beginning to really love some of what they do (most of LP5, a lot of Chiastic Slide, and Clichi Suite are beautiful records i think).

it seems strange that it too such a long time for me to really like them, but then i did that with piano magic, happy mondays and tom waits too, and i love 90% of all their stuff too.

got tri repetae recently, but having difficulty getting into that one so far.

saw them at Brixton Fridge the other week, and they were excellent. every track seems to start off so uninviting, but gradually becomes wonderful

so, i think i'd head towards classic really

gareth, Tuesday, 24 April 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

nah, i don't like tri repetae too much.

I'd like to amend my previous comment. Based on the other comments here, I went out and picked up Tri-Repetae and I have to admit that I'm liking it quite a bit. I don't know what the other album I heard was, now. I'll probably check out the new one too. Thanks for changing my mind on this one.

Clasik They laid down their basic schematic a decade ago, which was duely appropriated by a whole generation of Electronica outfits as a viable escape route from the ambient ghettos of the early nineties. But somehow, they both manage to avoid sounding anything like their legion of imitators, and remain undeniably Autechre. Geniuses in their own petri dish - remote, but perfect

K-reg, Thursday, 10 May 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

So anyone heard the new one? I was going to skip on this one, but it's getting really good reviews. Is it a departure or can it be compared with an oldie? Oh and most important: does it have some humanity (I always dread a full Autechre move into pure abstraction).

Omar, Monday, 14 May 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

i think the new one is the business. it is kind of a departure. its unmistakably them but less electro-ish. in a strange taxidermy way it reminds me of piano magic. very decayed sounding. busted cd type feel as well.

difficult to compare to other releases. perhaps the closest is chiastic slide (particularly hub)

i'd definitely recommend it. is rivalling Discovery for favourite album of moment.

Someone explain the appeal please? Much as I love the Warp-label, Autechre's brand of IDM just leaves me cold. Too ornate, too wrapped up in its own 'cleverness', too much fidgeting about playing around with FX. This music has no flow. Listening to Confield gives me a headache, as has every other release of theirs I've heard. Occasionally they hit on a groove, a sound, a pattern and everything momentarily clicks, but 5 seconds later and it abruptly changes direction. Is it like Geometry, or computer programming? I'm bemused, confused, and fail to connect with this music.

Stevo, Sunday, 10 June 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

I still haven't listened to the new album much - I haven't found myself in the right mood - but it might be fair to say the music indeed "has no flow", the way you're probably thinking. Unless this sort of willful difficulty is your thing, I think it would help to start with their earlier CDs and work your way forward. (That might make the current stuff more palatable, but then it might not for you.) Incunabula and probably Tri Repetae (and "Garbage", dammit I wish my Trie Repetae disc 2 hadn't snapped in half) have lots of songs that unfold more nicely, without so much focus on subverting rhythmic expectations (and sonic ones too).

Josh, Thursday, 14 June 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

i come from the opposite perspective on this one josh. i only picked yp incunabula recently and found it rather uneventful, and i find tri repetae is too harsh. chiastic slide is like tri repetae but somehow more personable. i think the ideal starting point is probably LP5. this seems very accessible (although again, on initial hearing it just gave me a headache!), it eventually seeped in and i love that album now.

the new one is simultaneously a continuity of LP5 in terms of denseness and a complete break in that there seems to be no flow or groove whatsoever. the flow may have been convoluted before, now it just sounds broken and rusted. its a wonderful record (particularly the middle section) but probably not the best place to start. LP5 i think remains their highlight.

gareth, Friday, 15 June 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Sean of Autechre in recent De:Bug declare: "we make the ultimate folk music". I like that idea a lot. No flow/broken sounds like another chinese puzzle, going to get it anyway. Another thing: I skipped on LP5, since i was suffering from autechritis at the time (I mean really, a record every year is too much), still worth checking out?

Omar, Friday, 15 June 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

yeh, lp5 is the best one!

as for autechre writing folk music, i wrote a confused piece on this, which you can find here

gareth, Friday, 15 June 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Dude! Confused? Not all. It's true isn't it? It such a nice framework for this sort of music.

So there you have it: we're the new folkies! :) Let's all grow beards.

Omar, Friday, 15 June 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

'Incunabula' is impressing me Josh, making more immediate sense than 'Confield'. 'Tri-Repetae' has moments of fractured beauty that long to be dwelt on, but frequently aren't. I find Autechre cold, abstract, and introverted, but I can't quite dismiss them. There is a dark clinical beauty that does attract. Like being drawn to an alluring, handsome stranger only to discover she/he is suffering from schizophrenia.

Stevo, Friday, 15 June 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

1 listen into Confield and all i can say: it's doing my head in! Very, very good. 1st track esp. is amazing (sort of gamelan-on-ice planet stuff, beautiful melody harking back to 1st album...nice, nice). Bit of a surprise because it sounds more direct in a way than mid-period Autechre. And they came up with some new cool sounds too.

I am (with some regret) going to be honest with myself and pass on this entirely, even though $33 for roughly 28 hours of music is an excellent price. For one thing, I am way too busy to ever get around to listening to all or even a significant percentage of it, and for another, I just don't like music that comes in one-hour slabs. I like discrete tracks, preferably anywhere from three to ten minutes. So...nope.

Listening back to the Denver recording (we were there) - Ae's sets have definitely progressed somewhat from the European dates (Dublin + Utrecht are favorites), timbre-wise, and re: transitions in between 'parts'-- the general flow of things feels different ... seeing them live, it was was one of the most psychedelic sound experiences I've ever had.. quite a treat to be able to hear direct / desk recordings of that show. For $1.50

For what it's worth, I kinda consider most of the post-Confield Ae albums (save for Quaristice \ 'versions') as whole "slabs" of almost continuous material. These live sets contain some of the rawest and most wholesome 'Autechre-speak', to my ears. It seems like they really honed the AE_LIVE material on these later USA dates... the textures are gorgeous.
