the dudes from autechre are just the dudes from boards of canada only from a seperate timeline where computers completely take over in the 1980s and they programmed them

probably

Autechre are way more akin to Aphex Twin (Especially in their earlier material) than these guys (SAW predates any Autechre material so I'm fairly certain they were influenced by him to an extent before moving on to be their own thing completely)

All the three big names from Warp have taken influences from each other to varied levels though, yeah.

obvious theories aside, BoC and AE have hung out with each other before so I'm not surprised if they bounced ideas or questions, prob same with RDJ

I BELIEVE they said yes to hanging out with RDJ as well during their AMA on Wearethemusicmakers last year.

What I do remember they said though was that at one point Aphex made a track as sort of taking the piss innocently at one of Autechre's tracks, something Autechre answered to on LP5. Supposedly RDJ made a reply to that too but never released it cuz they all have better things to do than going back and forth like that

yeah, RDJ is definitely the sort of "founder" for this style, but i feel like Autechre and Boards
took it in separate yet kinda symmetrical directions.

AE is more cold and calculated, explores less spiritual themes and is generally much more mechanical
sounding. darker in tone,more suffocating and creepy and just... kinda robotic, but still retaining
emotional resonance. BoC's sound is lighter, (generally, i mean they get quite dark) a lot more
curious, colourful and human on the other hand. their sound also feels more liberating as opposed to
the brooding nature to a lot of AE's works.

the balance between the two of them is kinda interesting imo. it's like technology vs. nature in a
way. i mean it doesn't really matter but it's something i've noticed after listening to a fair bit
more AE

TH is the most solid for me with some deep stuff going on. The cut and spliced 70s stuff of the other albums still rocks my world though.

it definitely aces the empty dystopia mood. not quite as big and psychedelic as their first 3, but i admire them for doing what they want and goin more minimalist and ambient. really didnt expect it but damn did i enjoy it
