I can't get enough of the first disc, damn.

Psh, I make 4h of idm/glitch/acid techno every day before breakfast.

Autechre's music isn't free of emotions, it's free of emotional instructions.

I wonder if they support Brexit? Of course they do... who am I kidding. Minds so erudite and mobile are always, politically, on the right.

@HeadShoter, Goomba4001: Thank you guys. I wanna try to make something for other elseq tracks too. I love the fact that Autechre play in total darkness to let the listeners immerse their senses into their imagination, but at the same time I think they should also use some visual design like that. Their music is hugely synesthetic and each sound can bring to mind different images and concepts.

@Mork_Laerer That is a great video, I hope that enters the canon of Autechre fanvids (up there with the plyPhon one). It's kind of weird realizing Autechre hasn't had an official video since 2002(?). @Los_Bybys No. But it's interesting discussing the impact and resulting listening experience of the decision to release a 4+ hour album, not your run-of-the-mill album format, even for Autechre.

@Mork_Laerer - Dude, that video is awesome!
3 Jun 10:12pm
Man, I'm getting to love that first disc.
3 Jun 12:21pm
People are actually whining about getting tons of new music?
3 Jun 1:21am
I've created this video for the track "foldree casual", I tried to make it synchronized with the sounds somehow. I think it fits directly with the stylistic glitch design which characterizes their art. The circles are intentional references to the elseq cover obviously. I hope you enjoy it guys: https://vimeo.com/168830450

u can say what ya want, they will never listen to you, they cant hear, isnt this obvious?
2 Jun 8:13pm
Personally, I love that elseq 1–5 seems so unedited, unfiltered. And I appreciate that they released it the way they did, ignoring standards to fit a format/medium. It kind of frees me from the ways that I listen to music usually, because I very often play an album and almost pressure myself having to play it in its entirety, so I don't miss that "album feel". For elseq it doesn't seem "sacrilegious" to play only Part 4, or Part 3 after 2, or to make a playlist, at all (it works though, playing 1-5). It was similar with Quaristice/Versions/Quadrange, but here is seems to be by design. So, elseq 1–5 is not too long, the idea of an album/EP/single or even a timelimit, shouldn't be made into a straightjaket, for you or the music.
2 Jun 9:13am
@epoetin - You don't have to listen to it in its entirety. At least I don't listen to it like that. I just put on whichever of the five parts I feel like listening to at the given moment.
1 Jun 2:23pm
Elseq 1-5 - great idea and cool that they're productive, but personally it's just too long
31 May 11:06am
@Xhi - I'd say Oversteps was that album, and it might be a while til we get another one like it...

Pitchfork gave it 7.0/6.6/6.9/7.1/6.8/10...7.0-6.6-6.9-7.1-6.8/10? 6̅.̅9̅/10!
29 May 7:56am
elseq series is great, but an album like incunabula or amber would be nice once in a while.
27 May 10:54pm
I like "c16 deep tread" almost hip-hop-esque beat and intense atmosphere.
27 May 8:01pm
@I0000days You say that like it's a bad thing
27 May 8:00pm
Part of me wishes Autechre could've released an consistently solid 1.5 hour, hell, 2.5 hour album that could've easily been one of their easiest to throw around to new fans (and uninitiated friends) and released the rest on an EP or something. Howeeever I kinda like the explorable labyrinthian feeling that comes with a giant-ass album like this. I'm torn.
27 May 4:38pm
Disc 5 is already massively overrated. It sounds like something Vladislav Delay would do if he did pot instead of quality Finnish alcohol.
27 May 2:43pm
Im one of those who interested in Radiohead`s experimental stuff, love albums In Rainbows, TKOL, Kid A, Amnesiac and their new alum is really bland. As for Autechre i just cant understand why they choose for lead single almost worst track like "feed1" - very monotonous boring one.... The 5th CD still best from new release.

I think the artwork makes sense as part of a set even though no individual part really stands out. I'll admit the AE_LIVE covers were a lot more interesting though, I wouldn't mind if those were swapped. Even though Quaristice had simple track artwork like elseq it still had a great LP cover to hold in your hands (especially Quarisitice Versions' metal cover—drool-worthy). Nothing beats the monolithic blackness (yet organic painted look) of the Oversteps artwork though. With their previous albums with track artwork I liked making weird synesthetic associations between the track artwork and the music itself and I know I'm going to do the same thing with elseq.
23 May 2:57pm
Some guys still believe that people are into Radiohead just because they experimented a bit in the past? No. It is because they are a catchy British band, nothing more... no one cares about their experimental nature no more.
23 May 2:54pm
Astronauts? Really? The Earth is flat.
23 May 2:06pm
I suppose if Autechre weren't musicians, I bet they were astronauts.
23 May 1:43pm
To be honest I think elseq artwork is kind of... well... terrible. It's most likely a deliberate decision to do the graphics in an OCD triggering fashion but I guess I don't get the joke. Otherwise I love TDR artworks so who knows maybe even this one will grow on me in time.
23 May 6:29am
I made a GIF of the elseq track artwork like I did for Oversteps back in the day, except I'm not willing to give up my current avatar, so y'all can have at it: http://joshsand.com/download/img/elseq.gif

Designer's Republic has finally stumped me in my efforts to have correct album artwork. Track artwork for each track, artwork for each disc, and artwork for the set as a whole. For Quaristice and Oversteps I cheated by creating a .01 second track of silence to hold/display the album's artwork (and the rest of the tracks having their individual artwork), but I think they've finally got me.

"Just in time to make Radiohead's 'experimentation' look silly. Well done, boys." +3

"Just in time to make Radiohead's 'experimentation' look silly. Well done, boys." What the hell is this even meant to mean? 
22 May 11:43am
M83J01P97: EXPERIMENTATION=POPULAR / Greenwood excluded though.
22 May 11:32am
"Just in time to make Radiohead's 'experimentation' look silly. Well done, boys." What the hell is this even meant to mean? A Moon Shaped Pool is probably Radiohead's least 'experimental' album in a long time, although having said that King of Limbs was hardly experimental either. They have long moved out of that phase in their career so I don't see any connection between the two at all... or ever in all honesty, other than Thom Yorke name checking them as an influence on Kid A creatively a long time ago.

Eastre on Elseq 3 FTW!!
