As soon as friends started sending me articles about Aphex Twin billboards showing up again, my mind quickly jumped to your line of thinking.

Welp, see you guys at Warp 40 for our next semi-new track! Maybe we'll get an expanded Story of Xentrix :lol:

we still have the 20th IABPOITC anniversary on Nov. 27th :( But agree, with this aphex stuff popping up it’s clear he’s releasing something soon. Still not a 0% chance, but it’s certainly close.

Today is the last ever flight of the 747. 10 years since Seven Forty Seven was released in the Warp20 boxset. Fits the question marks.

Re-release of Seven Forty Seven with something else on B Side (5D, Echus)?

The AFX stuff seems truly just to be an advertisement for the Bass Station 2 update by Novation, AFX could release something small along these lines like "Korg Trax" or maybe even "Cheetah". But I am not expecting it to be a new AFX album just yet. "Korg Trax" was also not released through Warp.
"Label: Korg"

I believe BoC will release sometime within' the next year, they know fans are hungrier then they have probably ever been, I dont believe they want to starve us for another 2 years, I could be wrong, but with recent events I just dont see that happening.

The BS2 update has been out forever. Pretty sure this is something cooler.

Isn't the anniversary of Beautiful Place on the 17th? Also regardless, Warp don't seem to care because the Battles EP is being released on the 20th of November.

I have a feeling they'll be a few articles written on Beautiful Place and maybe they'll be retweeted by the official Twitter and that's it. I hate to say it, especially since I've been so optimistic in the last few weeks, but it seems BOC fans are getting the short end of the stick yet again.

But, I will keep watching AMKS regardless. That's my one hope in all this :) And to all you AFX fans on here, I'm glad you're getting some new stuff from him!

The AFX thing turned out to be a hardware launch (which is awesome!). The Novation AFX Station seems to be a monosynth and we will get more info on it on the 20th.

So I don't believe ??????? will be a new Aphex Twin album

But like I said earlier on in the thread, I do plan on trying to make a legit sounding track from an album at some point, as a project just for the sake of arguments. But whenever that will be, i'll post it with the intention of being just that, no mystique.


Do you take requests? Why not make a leftover track from the Geogaddi sessions. Would be interesting to see how close you can get productionwise.

Apart from that, page 666 in this thread is getting closer. Maybe we could speed it up and see if something is happening.

Already deep into a MHTRTC track, wrote and recorded all elements at the last weekend and now it's arrange and regurgitate. Depending how it comes out i'd be game to do a Geogaddi one.

Geoghandi, I was actually thinking. Something you should do is come up with a "space" BOC track at some point. A "tradition" in the BOC community is to make a fake tracks for a new album before it's released. Apparently Headphase had a whole fake album made for it.

Who knows, we might create some good vibes by doing this and the hypothetical album will come out sooner. XD

Also, BOC did have a space track. I think Split Your Infinities makes me think of a VHS video depicting the infinite vastness of space

yeah, except it got that FEMA vibe, which makes it also fucking grounded to this world. The whole TH, in my opinion, fels perfectly balanced between this world and beyond. It is almost like journey of the human soul, through time. seeing the changes and eventuall sundown of humanity. A soul which can not escape it eternal cycle.

What 'IF', there is never another Boards of Canada album? How would it make you feel if they publicly declared that this project is over? I ask this because there is something about Tomorrow's Harvest that completes the puzzle. Especially with the re release of the entire back catalog and the Hexagon iconography etc. Would it make you sad? Appreciative? Happy? You got to hear this great music. We all backed the right horse :)

I vote for Basefree as their most space-y song.

I don't feel any of BoC are anywhere close to space. I feel they are grounded, so grounded that they are underground sometimes, amongst the mycelium. Trippy, mystic and dark like the side of our brain we forgot.

And it's a weird thing to say and I was amazed when OPN said similar in an interview, but... Snare drums anchor music to being made by humans.
If you take away the snare drum it becomes otherworldly, like it's not been created in typical man made musical ideology. Swap the role of a hat with anything, clicks, ticks, noise, the kick, synthy, boomy whatever, you can feel it's from any place, any dimension, as soon as you add a snare, it becomes man made. I don't know how you feel but that's how I look at it, and I use it as a point of reference for my own music, which most of the time, I just want it to just exist, like it's been born from natural causes not consciously by a human brain. I know that's nigh on impossible but it's an aim nontheless.

The most spacey album for me is Spokes by Plaid... And totally contradictory, it has many snare parts, but still, I feel it's a deep space album. It feels unlike any other plaid album, it feels like Ed and Andy were taken over by other beings at the time of making it, or they wrote it on a journey while being abducted. Still human elements but humans in space experiencing unreal things.
Silly I know, but it's the reason it's my favourite electronic album of all time, probably my favourite album of all time. It feels like it just exists. It's totally underated too, takes time to grow on you for sure but an album that is unreal all the way through as a whole, just like BoC albums. The track Zeal is a total masterpiece and feels like you're being operated on by alien forces.
I have also had a few drinks. ;)

Very interesting post, Geogandhi.

I love Spokes, but I've never found it to be spacey. Great album nonetheless. The most spacey album I can think of is Rifts by OPN.
