The seminal 1992 CD compilation that jump-started the whole IDM wave. New domestic mid-line reissue; previous U.S. edition on TVT is now deleted. AI marked the Warp debut for Aphex (as the Diceman) and Autechre. Featuring classic tracks by: The Dice Man (Aphex Twin), Musicology (B12), Autechre, I.A.O. (Black Dog), Speedy J, UP! (Richie Hawtin) & Dr. Alex Paterson (Orb). The funny but serious manifesto reads: "electronic music for the mind created by trans-global electronic innovators...Real people whose unity lies in a common sound + spirit and whose 'listening music' cannot be described as either soulless or machine-driven. The atmosphere and emotion both come from the musicians, their machines are merely the means to a human end."
