Musical interlude: Autechre / Tri Repetae++

Advertisements

It was in Amsterdam at the beginning of my studies, where the foundation was laid for the discovery of this record. The obvious perks of the apartment i was living in were a gigantic living room, beautiful shower and a waterbed. In addition: it was for free, as I was babysitting the apartment for somebody who had left for several months. One of its hidden treasures was a beautiful record collection.

This record collection contained strange LP’s that hardly sounded like music at all. Initially, the ‘music’ seemed to be random bleeps and noise, but a second or third listen revealed beautiful patterns that instantly resonated with the left side of my brain. Whereas the music probably appears ‘cold’ or ‘alien’ at first, subsequent listens will eventually appeal to the left side of the brain and reveal its deep beauty. Or nothing at all. My personal definition of music is ‘sound produced by a feeling’. If you like music to sing along with, dance to, or as background entertainment, this record is probably not for you. Don’t dismiss it without listening though, you might miss one of the most beautiful records ever made.

Recommendation: if you think that Coldplay is ‘alternative music’

    Weird indeed 🙂 Will give it a few more times to be sure, but I probably prefer something more melodic.

    Melodies are overrated, emotions count 😉
