Amber, released by Warp Records in 1994, is the second full-length album by the electronic music group Autechre.
The dense, mathematical music Autechre pioneered on their debut album Incunabula is given a new twist on their follow-up, Amber.
While percussion took center stage on their previous works, highly evolved melodies and textures dominate here. The spirit of
electro still lives in the muted beats, rhythmically complex and strangely funky. But they don't merely provide a background;
they meld seamlessly into dense layers of strings, wandering synth hooks, and massive shards of white noise. It's highly
intellectual, but by no means is it unemotional. While tracks like "Glitch" and "Piezo" are dense and impenetrable, most of Amber
covers emotional territory from quirky and upbeat ("Slip") to melancholic ("Nine").
