This is a part of
BRDCST pre-show with Autechre’s unique signature sound
De Morgen on Autechre’s performance in Belgium in 2016: "Autechre unleashed confetti cannons, streamers, glitter balls, and wacky singalongs on a jolly Ghent audience that spontaneously started a conga. Only joking."
True AE fans already knew this, of course, as the track sinistrailAB air from the phenomenal four-part, eight-hour-long NTS Sessions was an obvious hint regarding their dream wish: AE are coming to AB!
Autechre (pronounced ‘Autecker’ /ɔːˈtɛkər/) will inaugurate the BRDCST festival with a full pre-show. And we’re proud of that, as musical contrariness is an integral part of the DNA of AE and BRDCST alike.
For over 35 years, AE has been inimitable with their bouncy electronica, which is complex, abstract, dark, cubist, and funky all at the same time. His latest two-parter, SIGN and PLUS (2020) has been described by Stereogum as “some of the most human music they’ve ever made”.
Their last visit to Belgium was back in 2016. De Standaard wrote then: “Live, Autechre remains pure avant-garde: challenging, breathtaking and inspiring.” The Guardian said of their latest UK tour: “Autechre’s live environment is liable to switch at any moment from dreamscape to nightmare. It’s futuristic music made of sonic ruins – fragments unearthed from the darkness. - ****”

Fun factSean Booth (AE) on their band name: “The name came about when we were working on an Atari. The first two letters were intentional, because there was an 'au' sound in
the track, and the rest of the letters were bashed randomly on the keyboard. We had this track title for ages, and we had written it on a cassette, with some graphics. It looked good, and we began using it as our name."
