Autechre is the only thing I care about listening too lately. Exai, Draft 7.30, Confield, Oversteps, I feel like I have become a nonstop continuous orgasm while listening to these albums. What other electronic music besides the obvious afx, boc, ect sound like autechre? I mean really glitchy, fuckd, texturally complex, reality melting, technologically insane electronic music?
Have you ever listened to autechre? This shit is more intricate and layered than pretty much any other electronic music I've heard, you must have untrained plebber ears if you can't hear this
I got an Exai-like vibe from this album, maybe you will enjoy it.
Tarantel- Ghetto Beats on the Surface of the Sun
It was in a sharethread recently, you can probably find it in the archive.
This is me. I'm completely grabbed by the balls. I can't do anything but listen to them, their music gives me something I've never experienced in music, and I listen to a fucking lot of electronic music.
Yeah, you are right.
Venetian Snares? I've listened to two of his albums and he is really good, but it's all Industrial Jungle or something. Is there any album that sounds like autechre?
Only while making anything past Making Orange Things.
Grischa lichtenberger or what was it
Mouse on Mars is great too, though i don't really like their latest stuff
come to mind..
My favourites are Exai, Draft and oversteps
posting as a reminder that the bass drop in cloudline is the heaviest thing that exists on the planet atm
You're ready for the next level.
Nope, wrong thread.
I'd say glitch is much more compositionally complex and varied than IDM, and less about the textures straightforward rhythms. The latter is the fundamental difference between autechre and clicks and cuts
The good thing about autechre are their complex compositions and their sounds, so I guess Ryoji Ikeda fits pretty well for the first reason.
Listen to Test Pattern
>Listen to Test Pattern
I did. Chance are I've know Ikeda for much before you yourself discovered him. That track is an ideal example of audio minimalism and only supports my original statements.
I would recommend you stick to your prog generals but that would be insulting to prog generals.
Not really. It's hard work to make something as rhythmic and enjoyable out of such sterile sound sources and short samples.
I mean composition specifically, yes most of that is still fairly repetitive and relies on grains but it doesn't need a massive distorted bassline and heavy drumkicks to make the music feel 'full'.
Idk that's just how i see it. I get a more pure feeling out of it. I could almost say that Autechre likes to mask and hide their weak sides in all this glitchy business,but then again, it's a completely different kind of approach to music and atmosphere.
Certainly. It really is hard to find anything that enjoyable and well thought out music on all accounts as Autechre.
As for OP, the closest you can get really is Richard devine and the likes.
And.IV is much more closer to Autechre than anything from an or ikeda, for sure
In Autechre's case, copy's aren't as good as the original. That song could have came out ten years ago's and it would still be mediocre. Nothing about that song was "next level". Richard Devine on the other hand...
What about abstract minimalism?
It came out in 03 so that's why the quality isn't up to par but it still showcase what he can do. All those intricate sounds going at once while sustaining headroom is a hard feat even among the best.
That's songs not necessarily the best example of that album, it's probaly the most accessible track on it. The thing that makes Ikeda great is how he creates complex compositions with minimal sounds.
>The thing that makes Ikeda great is how he creates complex compositions with minimal sounds.
Also, how well the album flows, especially on Dataplex.
>it's probaly the most accessible track on it
Hmm send me the least accessible track on the ablum because the bleeps were too generic for me.
>complex compositions with minimal sounds
Venetian Snares did that back in 04 except sped up the bpm and added a touch of odd time signatures.
Ikeda can be called aesthetically complex.
You're a straight-up retard for applying western, traditional norms to the kind of music Ikeda, Sachiko-M and others of that ilk make, by the way.
>it's probaly the most accessible track on it
That track is the culmination of the album.
The whole album needs to be listened as a cohesive whole. Judging from this thread you, Avant-Math and most anons on this board "get" the album only on a surface level.
At least you could develop an idea instead of just throwing insults like the other guys.
I agree with you though, but he asked for what I think complexity means and answered what I thought was correct. There are a lot of other types of complexity than the ones I mentioned too.
That's what I said here >>52643847
Don't be so quick to judge.
I know. Entain has also been recommended to me, but like I said, haven't found the right time to listen to it.
Do you like Pan Sonic? Kesto's first disc is pretty cool.
prefer A by them tbh
you should check it out since you liked the first disc of Kesto and are into microsound stuff like Ikeda
I think Pan Sonic make texturally the most colourful and heavy noise music ever. Too bad they tend to be a bit loopy, but i heard their music is just real-time improvisations with their gear edited down.
Kuvaputki dvd is very cool
Sure, I always want to listen to more Pan Sonic, but usually get disappointed because it's not Kesto :/
>I'd rather listen to something a bit more abrasive.
Test Pattern and Cyclo's Id
Listen to those ASAP, you will love them.
What I really like about Pan Sonic's Kesto is how well the "noise bursts" are used. Also, the rhythms are hypnotic and one of the few artists that makes me feel using only rhythm.
Never really cared for their "color" though, tbh.
are you into EAI? you might be interested in pic related, it's a collaboration between Mika Vainio from Pan Sonic, Sean Booth from Autechre and Kouhei Matsunaga aka NHKyx.
chill, i like all of those artists already
someone just recently linked this
and i could only find 2 albums from this dude
will look into slsk later
That guy is a bit confusing with the aliases. He has a ton of material released otherwise; personally recommending Merzbow/Kouhei (a collaboration w/Merzbow), Sensational Meets Kouhei (the 2006 collab album with Sensational who himself is Death grips years before Death Grips, and Self VA.
Here are my recommendations for you, OP.
Team Doyobi - Choose Your Own Adventure
Team Doyobi is sort of like Autechre if they made music on old computers like Amigas.
Oberman Knocks - Beatcroff Slabs
This album is very dark and enveloping, a bit like Draft 7.30 only spoopier.
SND - MakeSND Cassette
This one is the most different from Autechre. Imagine if Ae made minimalist music and were obsessed with house instead of electro and old hip-hop.
yellow magic orchestra. very lush and layered sequenced melodies in folk song arrangements. rightly titled the "godfathers of techno(pop)" below kraftwerk. it's just so much fun to listen to each line of sequences in their songs.
yellow magic orchestra (1978)
solid state survivor (1979)
probably more in the vein of autechre, particularly their middle works like tri repetae because of timbre
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xB0cwq-C77g (amazing everything about this)
naughty boys (1983)
after service (1984)
track 3 on oversteps is my favorite Autechre piece, sounds like something you could play in a church and is really sad while a bit joyful because of the high pitched sounds, and the best part of it is that you kind of hear the melody inbetween the sounds, if you know what I mean. Like, it's not directly introduced, sometimes it's only hinted
