Personally, the respect I for the group is just not normal.
Talk about such all encompassing, engulfing, trancing, absorptive music.
However, I wanted to start a thread about the techniques and software used, or could have been used at one time, in their music or in this genre of elecro-acoustic in general.
Ableton Live, Beat slicing, classic drum machines, Pro Tools, Analog Synths, glitch repeats/delays, fx, tape manipulation - anything goes.
I want to start this discussion of with one of their interviews from EM magazine. http://emusician.com/remixmag/artists_interviews/musicians/remix_tapeheads/
This interview covers their production over a few different albums. The techniques they used to create some of their amazing songs, and the lives connected with such compositions.
Some links to their unbelievable music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vYnmP8HOZ00 - Sound In A Dark Room http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCspF-lz24A - Fahrenheit Fair Enough http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3u92RKP2V8 - When It Happens It Moves All By Itself
Ill kick it of with a question related to Telefon: How has this type of music inspired you to push your creative boundaries? How did you respond and what types of explorations in audio resulted from such inspiration?
