Mentioned on LineOut. The Stranger.com If you're already a fan of Aphex Twin, you'll revel in Weidenbaum's deep dive into one of the artist's signature works. If not, you'll be surprised to learn that you've likely already heard his music in one form or another. -- S.T. Vanairsdale The City (SacTownMag.com) the 'extravagantly opaque, willfully vaporous' chillout room masterpieces of electronic composer Richard D. James, aka Aphex Twin -- basically what everyone in the 1990s listened to as they swept up/came down after the rave -- get the business from incisive SF writer and archivist Marc Weidenbaum. And really, the pairing couldn't be any more delicious. -- Marke B. San Francisco Bay Guardian Like all good critical studies, Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works Volume II doesn't provide the illusion of closure; rather, it expands minds, fostering the creation of textual meaning. I can offer no higher praise. -- Caught in the Carousel Paul Gleason It's not easy writing about ambient music. It is hard to describe how it sounds, and it is also hard to describe how it makes you feel. Weidenbaum avoids these problems by writing about the track listing, the names of the songs, the circumstances of the creation of the album, the reception of the album, and how it was used in movies...Some of Weidenbaum's approaches to discussing the album are illuminating. He explains how SAW Vol II was developed for chill out rooms at raves when people were coming down from long hours of dancing and drugs, and they needed something both restful and energizing. -- Christian Perring Metapsychology Online Reviews Weidenbaum, editor of the Disquiet music/sound website since 1996, is a lucid listener. His book offers deep insights into what makes the individual tracks so startling. -- Derek Walmsley The Wire Marc Weidenbaum packs a lot into these 130 pages: a mini-biography of a ground-breaking artist, a capsule history of ambient music, and an example of how digital technology determines how we hear and interpret music. -- Stephen M. Deusner Pitchfork

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

HASH(0x9f9ca090) von 5 Sternen A brief but dense essay on an impenetrable album 9. April 2014
Von M. Austin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Marc Weidenbaum had an uphill battle with writing about an almost entirely instrumental record, where only 1 track had an official title, and the artist has been notoriously reticent to interviews recently. Weidenbaum tackles the record from every conceivable direction, finding fertile ground in the "beatless" tag applied to the record early on, its influence on (and how it was influenced by) ambient music, the myriad ways the record has been dissected, adapted, and performed, and the very concept of untitled music has on both how it's perceived and how modern technology handles the nomenclature of metadata.

To his credit, the author bases very little of the book on a phone interview he conducted with Aphex Twin the late '90s. A lazier writer would base the entire book on that conversation, but Weidenbaum is smart enough to know that it's the listener's interpretation of the record, divorced from the aritst's intent, is much more interesting to delve into. SAW2 is therefore treated like the text that ideas spring from, not a concrete piece with a singular interpretation.

Readers should be aware that Richard D. James figures very little in this book; unlike many 33 1/3 books, SAW2 is not a mini biography. Perhaps that's the way the artist, who's alternately obscured and disseminated his identity and working methods, would like it.

HASH(0x9f9cbcf8) von 5 Sternen Time capsule of the ambient early '90s 2. März 2014
Von Quiet Wyatt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
These 33 1/3 books are always a mixed bag since you don't know what angle(s) the author will choose to take. I consider this volume on Aphex Twin's SAWII one of the better ones because of how Weidenbaum positions the album in the context in which it was released. The early- to mid-1990s were a time of strange popularity for all kinds of electronic music (even though electronic music has been composed since the 1960s and continues to be composed now) and SAWII is one of the strangest albums within the period because it bucks so many of the trends of the time: it's not dance music, it doesn't "rock", it's not showy in terms of composition or performing skills, yet it's also unlike the happy/dubby/bubbly ambient music of The Orb, FSOL and other '90s contemporaries.

If I am disappointed in one thing about Weidenbaum's book, it is that he spends so much time talking about what this album is *not*, at the expense of spending more time talking about what it *is*. I would have liked to read more of a track-by-track breakdown/commentary, but as it is, the author only discusses 7 or 8 of the album's 25 pieces at length. (There is also no discussion of how the music was made, but to be fair, I did not expect that since Richard D. James is famously secretive about his methods.) I still enjoyed the book, however, as a snapshot of a period in the history of electronic music, as well as a welcome prompt to revisit a favorite album with fresh ears.

HASH(0x9f7931ec) von 5 Sternen I'd give 4 and a half star if I could... 22. Februar 2014
Von Trond Berger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I'm impressed by this book, as it comes close to embody what I want the 33 1/3 series to be like: an insightful, written documentary that shines through as a labour of love without losing its journalistic cool. Weidenbaum nails all this with an album I thought was very unlikely to appear in this series in the first place. I think I laughed when I first saw the announcement for it. Yes, I'm impressed. I hope he writtes about an Autechre album next, or Stereolab's Transient Random Noise Bursts With Announcements. Please!
HASH(0x9f792f0c) von 5 Sternen No big revelations on this one-still fun to read. 3. Mai 2015
Von Rich L. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
It's not full of revelations on the album from Richard himself, but it's a good easy read about the circumstances surrounding him signing to WEA, why the album is so different from the rest of his catalogue, the impact it's had, etc. The writing can be a little dry sometimes, but still a good analysis overall.

HASH(0x9f9cbd58) von 5 Sternen A fun conversation about this great album 8. April 2014
Von Joseph Michael Guisti - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was hoping for a bit of inside dirt on Aphex Twin's composition practices or explanations in what went into creating particular songs. While this is more of a discussion of the discourse surrounding the album as well as a snapshot of the industry and scene that provided its context, it's still a fun read. Would recommend to SAW II / Aphex diehards, but not sure if it has broader appeal.
