Listen to the zany creations of Aphex Twin’s 6-year-old son
Fresh after the release of his newest album, Syro, a digital compilation that comes thirteen long-awaited years after his last one, Aphex Twin had a little fun with his fans in an interview with his friend Dave Noyze. Noyze says the interview with James came more or less in the form of a two month long, unscripted, unedited online chat manuscript. During their conversations, James shared five new tracks, most of which he says his six-year-old son created on his own. Dubbed “Rock Up,” “Up In The Rocks,” “Jiper” and “The Best Tracks,” young James’s songs were produced using the digital audio workstation Renoise.
“I never showed him a thing,” 43 year-old James says. “He worked it all out himself, mind boggling.” Listen to the zany creations below.
And here’s one Aphex did himself: the never before heard “Spectrum 48k,” an original from his teenage years.
