Delphium


As various sites and magazines have noted in the last two days Aphex Twin's Selected Ambient Works is now twenty five years old. How something so progressive and futuristic can be quarter of a century old is just one of those headspinners you have to live with. Pick anything from its twelve tracks at random and find music bewilderingly beautiful that sounds like nothing else made between 1985 and 1992, music it is impossible to get tired of. Like this one...

Delphium

Someone on Youtube has set opener Xtal against these visuals creating a juxtaposition nightmare, beauty and horror.

That's a very unsettling video. Had to turn it off before the two minute mark. It says nothing to me about the music or vice versa.

I can vividly remember buying that album in Fopp on Byres Rd. Twenty five years, how can that be!
