Autechre, Squarepusher, Plaid: Influence on Avvenir's Glyphs

Glyphs, my debut album as Avvenir, is finally out in the world, and I couldn't be happier. This is my third solo project I've launched in just over a year (City States and Contretemps being the other two), and I'm very much enjoying this prolific period after years of slow, sometimes difficult music-making.

I'm not one to hide the influences on my work—just the opposite, I spend lots of time listening to other people's music, and I actually enjoy highlighting where I find inspiration (I talked about this at length during a recent interview with Impose). With that in mind, I've made a playlist of music that led me to the style of Glyphs. Note that the group closest to my heart, Autechre, is the only one here represented with three songs. In fact, the concept I started with for the sound of the record was to merge the electro-influenced style of their early work with the looser deconstructions of their mid- and late-period LPs. I'll very likely make a full Ae playlist sometime in the future, so stay on the lookout for that.
