I'd argue that this album hasn't aged all too well because of the (sometimes) dated techno, but it hardly matters since the tracks on "Incunabula" are all impressive. Although scattershot, this record sustains interest and has many bright moments of innovation and a surprising amount of warmth throughout. Yes, Autechre are just getting started in 1993 and have yet to reach the pinnacle of their career, but this simply isn't a record that can easily be dismissed. If I had to pick a highlight I'd lean towards the wondrous "Basscadet" but all of this is really good stuff

The true symbol of 90s' electronic music, a masterpiece of darkness, cerebral melodies and cold industrial beats. Almost 80 minutes of pure electronic experimentation!

With 'Incunabula', the Manchester duo Autechre created a distinctive form of postmodern electronic music that was a vast improvement on the standard techno/'chill-out' music of the period. What separates Autechre from the crowd is the carefully calibrated nature of their music which they emphasize by their use of soft 'organic' rhythms. These rhythms skillfuly bridge synth-pop, Indian classical music, the minimilism of Terry Riley and the ambience of Brian Eno. In short, the music of Autechre is akin to a 'design in sound' that is both meticulous and intricate.
