More abstract off-kilter rythyms from Autechre.
This is definitely music for the modern age. At first
listen this sounds like chaos and electro wanking.
But where there's chaos there's also order, &
continued listening reveals complex but precise beats,
sounds, organizational sequences. Patience, grasshopper.
I was listening to this at work one day when a guy
I work with came into my office and started talking
to me. He overheard Ipacial Section and said
is this a real song? I said yes and although he's
musically literate, he seemed amused by the fact that
the music was so abstract and unconvential that it
had been reduced to pure sound, sometimes resembling
the structure of a song. It's as if they sliced open
a drum machine and now there's rythym loops spilling
out all over the floor.
And that's the best way to describe Untilted.
Experimental, reaching, transitional, open-ended,
and out there. If youre the kind of person who
wants to listen to a song that has a verse-chorus-verse
style to it, this kind of music might drive you crazy
as you wait for some sort of conventional structure
to appear, because it wont.
If you like experimentation, sounds, abstract electronic
stuff, you'll love this. Its got bassy lows
and sharp highs, and is anything but ordinary. The
more you listen, the more you realize what's behind
the deconstruction. Its intent is to lift the lid
off of the music, lift out the messy beating heart
and hold it up before the musical masses.
