The Autechre Sound and Vision

20 Nov

The Autechre sound and the famous congenial video clip by Alex Rutterford offer an explicitly synthetic synaestetic experience to our senses. The computer generated textures of image and sound recall the promise of a limitless richness to our modern days once again. And this time (again) the creatio ex nihilo is in the hands of man… and it is rather available compared to heavy industry. The promise of the artificial paradise grows in the vast amount of “unofficial videos” created to the sound of Autechre and similar artists.

I think this version of the promise of an artificial paradise is typical for the 90’s and early 00’s.
