Autechre return to their hometown of Manchester this November as part of The Warehouse Project’s autumn/winter season that begins later this year. Taking place on Nov 26th, the gig will take place at Granada Studios, with Autechre making this stop as part of their 2016 tour after the release of their twelfth studio album Elesq.
Hailing from Rochdale, Autechre formed back in 1987 and are one of the most prominent artists to have signed to the seminal Warp Records imprint that was also coined in their native city. The pair is known for their music that balances the mechanical with the musical and their most recent album is one of the weirdest, but most creative you’ll ever hear.
Although their studio albums are regularly dedicated to a more exploratory sound, Autechre’s live performances encompass a dance floor oriented music sound. With a number of historical performances over the past two decades, some of which have been hugely charitable for natural disasters, they are highly seasoned performers whose wow factor is undiminishing.
