Autechre - Confield album
Autechre's sixth album, a landmark step in their discography as a move away from the ambient techno of their past and towards the glitch and experimental.
Confield: Autechre and broken beat music at the highest level. You have never heard anything like this before. It's like letting a computer loose to make beats. It's been said that Confield is an album to respect but not enjoy. I think anyone who is open enough will love it. It leads you everywhere and nowhere at the same time. An album I personally could never get bored of listening to. Reply Notify me 4 Helpful. I consider myself a pretty experienced Autechre listener, but I just can't get into this one.
Confield is the sixth album by British electronic music duo Autechre, released 30 April 2001 by Warp Records
Despite the dozens of experimental electronics producers constantly nipping at their heels, Autechre remained at the forefront of academic sound processing with a highly awaited sixth full album. Whether pushing the next new thing in 2001 is enough to keep listeners coming back to this LP years later is a much different question, and the assault of non-rhythmic beats sprayed all over Confield is enough to keep most from even trying.
Listen free to Autechre – Confield (VI Scose Poise, Cfern and more). With Confield, Sean Booth and Rob Brown largely abandoned the warm ambient sounds of their earlier works such as Amber and Tri Repetae in favour of the more chaotic feel that they had been pursuing with LP5, EP7, and Peel Session. One of the more controversial aspects of the album's production was, like EP7, the use of generative sequences for certain aspects of the songs.

i honestly don't even know what to say about this. confield is arguably autechre at their most cold and "emotional" sounding, and it is pulled off flawlessly. there isn't a second of non-essential content on here (well, maybe except for Eidetic Casein, but even that obviously isn't a truly "bad" track. this was the album that made me truly. realize i would grow to love autechre, and i honestly never get tired of it. i could spend several paragraphs gushing about each track,.
It's a shame that Autechre were tagged with the horrid label of "IDM" and were lumped in with the rest of the geeky bedroom music crowd, particularly when artistic statements like Confield prove them to be wildly distinctive and different from their peers.
