I'd say start with Amber if you are used to Aphex.

Okay, listening to UNTILTED for the first time in years.

Okay, yeah. My favorite electronic album of all time.

Random? How so?

I think the songs flow so well... like... the programming is unbelievable, the intricacies and depth of it all, it's just mind expanding..

For me, it's all about AUGMATIC DISPORT. It gets to a certain point in that song, probably 6 minutes in or so, and .. wow.

They're all great anyway. What I like on this album is that, while the tracks remain (for me ...) kinda groovy (seriously, those rhythms compell my knees to shake), there's an important focus on "microprogression". Kinda like minimal techno in a sense, the musical sentences slowly evolve, bit by bit, with each repetition, transforming into something totally new - then introducing melodies and so on coming out of nowhere.

Yeah, definitely, and it's interesting to go back to their early works because most of those tracks were quite minimal as well, and it's cool how far they've taken this sound and in what direction they've went in. I like that they don't just pile on the chaos (see Venetian Snares or some shit, which I like sometimes but often just find boring and ridiculous), the chaos is actually beautifully controlled... to actually pay attention to all the little progressions is just mindboggling. The intricacy of the programming is ridiculous.... too amazing for words. Indescribable.

I really think I like every album they've done better than the one before with, the exception being Quaristice, which I LOVE... but it's nowhere near as good as Untilted. I don't think anything they do ever will be. I mean, where else can they honestly take this sound?!


Basically, for those reading this who've never heard it, Untilted is the definition of an album you can listen to 1000 times and still hear something new every time.

I agree with most of what you've said
Wouldn't call Untilted the best Autechre album though ; but it's all about opinion of course! My favorite would be Confield. Which also quite fits the definition of an album you can listen to 1000 times while still finding something new ...
It took me around 10 listens to only begin to understand it completely. And I must admit now I can't understand why I thought there was almost no melody in that record ; I see them anywhere now. Another thing I like about Confield is the fact that it kinda sounds like totally abstract, yet some little elements appear to keep it emotional, and in that they are kind of reinforced. Like for instance on the first track, there's this constant rolling sound which is kind of disturbing at the first, then the gorgeous synth comes on with this beautiful melody, which sounds even more beautiful after this two minutes of abstract.
Same with Pen Expers: an intense rhythmic crushing, in which slowly appears this growing, distorded synth, like rays of sunlight or something. Which makes it both groovy and beautiful. Uviol is another pure masterpiece ... Lentic Catachresis also ... oh wait basically every track on that record is a masterpiece

(about Untilted: another fantastic track is Pro Radii. Listening to it now, that melodic / ambient part that comes around 6:30 is just splendid bliss)

for me untilted is probably their most impressive on a technical level

but fuck...draft 7.30
nothing ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD sounds even remotely close to that album. it blows me mind every single time i listen to it. every single second of it is like some incredibly detailed part of a painting, the songs are constantly evolving and warping, every sound used in those songs is totally unrecognisable but still strangely familiar

i cannot speak highly enough of that album, really.

Put MAX/MSP into Autechre's hands and they are untouchable.
There are many patches out there for the taking!

I'm slowly coming to grips with Jitter.

I am not good with song titles, but the 11 minute song and the very last song on draft 7.30 are absolutely mind blowing.

Con Field rules so much too.. fuck, I'm going to have to just pull out all my autechre albums today..

Truely brilliant. I love how in some tracks, there'll be things going on in the background that will suddenly appear in the foreground; little sequences you don't really notice or think about suddenly and dramatically become the basis for the rest of the track. It really makes you stop and think about the possibilities of sound itself. How nanoseconds of a beat's manipulation can change everything. Working on a super, super micro level.. but expanding it to these epic tracks (I think that's why I'm not as into Quaristice, the songs are too short; and yeah I've heard the Quadrange EP's and they're pretty cool..).

I've never tried jitter, but autechre inspired me to use max. I've got a while to go, but I've made a 303 emulator and a few generative sequencers for drums that don't use the random objects. One makes beats that sound very similar to cfern and another gets kind close to the bouncing, creaking style sounds on draft.

It takes a lot of time and dedication to perfect, but it's well worth it.
Happy tweaking.

that's not actually an autechre one though. it's hosted on the same page as some autechre patches, but this one was made by these dudes who were trying to make autechre style patches, but it's not actually by autechre.
