Autechre live at Steam Whistle Brewing Company, Toronto, 9 May 2001.
This is another Autechre board tape that I post-produced into a concert recording- gave it a lot of crowd sounds, some room ambience, and remastered the actual music as well.
There are a handful of Ae board tapes from the 2001 tour out there, and this Toronto performance is one of my favorites, so I wanted to give it some special treatment and really fix it up.
Most importantly, there was a nasty bit of digital clipping immediately after the 6 minute mark which I fixed up manually, which required about a half a day of tedious pencilling out flattened waveforms in Soundtrack Pro, but it’s worth it.
I’ve seen the venue listed for this show as being the Steam Whistle Brewing Company and also The Opera House. I don’t know which is correct, or if both are correct, or if one is more accurate than the other.
Presonus Studio One for arranging, DSPing and mixing. All mastering done in Soundtrack Pro.

The music in the first half of this video reminds me very much of EP7, so I guess I’ll recommend this video if you like that era of Autechre.
Don’t ask me why, but I created a Myspace page for Dancu yesterday. Must have been really bored. But at the same time, I don’t think there’s any harm in it.
Nothing exclusive there- the same couple songs that I have up on my Soundcloud/official.fm, and the same video that I have up on YouTube. Lots more fotos than I have anywhere else, not that they have anything to do with my Dancu music at all. Of course, all six songs of my debut release are posted nowhere other than my Bandcamp.
By the way, Myspace still has a bunch of kinks to work out. Setting up my page and uploading my content was fairly painless, but the process has some weird little quirks that you won’t know about until you upload your media, and once you do that you’ll realize how stuff needs to be labelled for it to display the way you want it to on Myspace, and it’s not all that logical.
Also, I don’t remember what the original Myspace was like, but the new one is set up in a blog format where you can post pictures or songs or videos or simple text updates, and it all becomes part of your ‘stream’ or whatever they call it. Fine. I doubt I’ll post too much there, but it’s just another blog to update (along with my Blogspot, my Tumblr, my WordPress, my LinkedIn, my personal FB, my artist FB, my company FB…).
Seriously, I’ve been working on and off on these songs for a couple years, and I could go on remixing and remixing and remixing and remixing them until the end of time, but I finally just said to myself ‘ok, enough’ and threw them up on Bandcamp. Six tracks of gloomy, pounding, orchestral, soundtracky, martial industrial with a healthy dose of glitchy synths. Pay what you want.
