At the time of "Tri Repetae", the third album by the duo formed by Rob Brown and Sean Booth, released in 1995, someone said that Autechre were to electronica what Joy Division were to rock. It wasn't a bad analogy.
Thirty years after their first releases, Autechre are one of electronica's most revered institutions. Along with Aphex Twin, we will never know whether their natural habitat is a museum, a laboratory or a club. Art, science and celebration.
Three axis on which their legend is built, which is not only a legacy but also a pure periodic present, as will be proven once again on their first proper show in Barcelona. Autechre will perform at Caprichos de Apolo the 9th of April at a historic event, co-organised with Primavera Sound and MUTEK ES.
They lived near Manchester, their magnetism was dark, their sound was like a soundtrack to a post-industrial landscape, their cult following was growing, and they were renewing a musical language by exploring the unknown.
Autechre were just then beginning to introduce us to their own particular sense of proportion, their own golden ratio, of musical creation. Those synthetic sounds scrunching, crackling, slashing and even collapsing were altering our sense of the definition of music, our perception of reality.
Think of that musician that seems impossible to you that someday will come to play in Barcelona. Or think of that cult artist who doesn’t fit into any programming cycle. Or think about that special show of a large artist in small format. Well, all of this is Caprichos de Apolo.See More
