Aphex Twin has Too Much Free Time

Aphex Twin recently conducted a “Penderecki-inspired composition” in Poland… via remote control. It is terrible (the piece, not necessarily the performance). It’s also hard to see what the technology adds to the music, other than allowing Richard James to indulge in his love of anonymity. I guess that’s what happens when you live in a converted bank for too long.

  1. I understand that you didn’t appreciate the piece, but imagine that piece of music was used in the background of a film along the lines of Alien, The Shining etc, it’s not supposed to be a piece of music by itself, it was required to be there in the audience, observe the instruments and feel the atmosphere, I urge you to relisten when you get a bit of time to yourself.
