L-event is an EP by electronic music duo Autechre, released on Warp Records on 28 October 2013. Like Exai, L-event features album artwork and packaging by The Designer's Republic. It was released on 28 October 2013 as a CD and LP, accompanied with either a downloadable. mp3 o. AV version of the album when purchased from Bleep.

L-event isn’t a world away from the Exai material. It's not passive listening. Autechre work operates at a high level of engagement, requiring a commitment from the listener that's as great as the detail poured into the music. That holds true across their output, and only seems to increase with each passing record. Osla for n" follows the pattern set by a track like "veKoS" from that album, where the focus begins to slip by the middle and then drifts into aimless contemplation. At least on "tac Lacora" they demonstrate how well they can still transform their overriding preoccupation with digital interference into sound, although there is a creeping sense that Brown and Booth are looping back on themselves, returning to ground they've already covered in abundance.

Shop Vinyl and CDs and complete your Autechre collection. As mentioned, it's clearly made from leftovers from the Exai sessions, but the tracks fit very nicely into this four-piece set, and complement the parent record well. Don't expect anything too new or groundbreaking here, but if you enjoyed what the duo did with Exai then this is likely to please. Remixes from that album or not? Autechre keep exploring the universe of beats, rhythms, sounds and melodies. Fresh, harsh and at times difficult. For instance, It takes some time to absorb the longest track on this EP "Osla for n", but once it's inside your mind it's hard to make it leave.

Autechre have a long history of releasing impressive standalone EPs, from the early brilliance of 1994's Anti, to the unusual rhythms of 1997's Cichlisuite and sci-fi electronics of 2010's Move of Ten. L Event, a four-track EP with artwork from long-time collaborators The Designers Republic, continues this trend. Despite the sci-fi electronics, there's something almost tear-jerking about the melancholic melodies of "Newbound", while "Tac Lacora" sounds like an invitation to dance (though, inevitably, only jazz dancers on speed need try it).

Autechre follow their excellent ‘Exai‘ album with this four track brace of further productions. Two releases in one year is generous for the generally reclusive duo, and we should suspect that this’ll be our fill for a while to come judging by their usual release infrequency. So, what does it sound like? Like the last album, it’s relatively funky Autechre: ‘Tac Lacora‘ vaults and fragments in spine-reassembling spurts and spats, whereas ‘M39 Diffrain‘ is wormholing steppers’ techno concrète

  • Beardana
An absolute masterpiece. This is everything I could ever ask for from an Autechre EP! Give osla for n a chance, it's actually become my favorite track on the EP (though by a thin margin)
  • Kulalas
Unfortunately the website promoting this no longer exists. Shame that.
  • nailer
Wonderful, but can anyone remember how to get the website destruction stuff, i distinctly remember having websites destroyed to the sound of a random on the fly sort of version of L-Event around release time... I really want to see that shit again, I keep googling but I can't find anything about it :(
  • Dusar
Is the vinyl pressed at 45rpm or 33rpm? (e.g. intended speed).
  • Unde
33rpm is the intended speed, as noted on the packaging
  • Kelerana
There is only one word to describe the textures of the tracks on this EP: oatmeal.
  • Uanabimo
to my ears it's a surprisingly enjoyable release. it sounds fantastic, the tracks are tight and it doesn't drag on forever. side b alone is worth the price of entry.
  • Impala Frozen
An intriguing little EP from Autechre. As mentioned, it's clearly made from leftovers from the Exai sessions, but the tracks fit very nicely into this four-piece set, and complement the parent record well. Don't expect anything too new or groundbreaking here, but if you enjoyed what the duo did with Exai then this is likely to please. The emphasis here is on beatwork and texture, with their trademark layers making repeat listens a necessity, and the melodic "newbound" makes a great closer to the set. It's the stand-out track for me, since I've always preferred their melodic work, but each piece here has something to offer and depth to explore.
  • Cetnan
Fun fact: Ae intended to release these tracks first and then release Exai. Warp however had other ideas-
  • Fordregelv
I am surprised that there was no mention yet of how most tracks seem to derive from the previous track in some form.
  • Zeli
I guess that's entirely subjective, especially if the connotation of 'melody' is a sequence of notes that you personally find pleasing, but yes -- I would argue that a four-note descending scale could count as a melody. In this case though, I actually didn't say "newbound" contained a melody (good or bad); I said it was melodic, as in it involves more of a melodic structure than the rest of the EP.
  • Nilabor
olsa for n is really wierd Oo
  • Windforge
Fits nicely in the Exai 4LP box.
  • Early Waffle
It fits but can you remove them from the box now?
  • Garne
daftcombo. I have my L-event EP in the Exai case and it fits perfectly and the case is not too tight.
  • Ckelond
The records are too squeezed when you put this one into the Exai box.
  • Vertokini
I now (thanks to you then you) have noticed that too
  • Dugor
Yep :) Noticed that too
  • Sudert
Quite a stunning release again! Obviously these tracks are from the recording session of Exai. Remixes from that album or not? Autechre keep exploring the universe of beats, rhythms, sounds and melodies. Fresh, harsh and at times difficult. For instance, It takes some time to absorb the longest track on this EP "Osla for n", but once it's inside your mind it's hard to make it leave. There are numerous layers here and a lot of hidden melodies. Sit back and enjoy this experience!
