Aphex Twin announces new ‘Cheetah EP’

Aphex Twin Cheetah EP poster

Aphex Twin has yet again sent out a weirdo press release for new music and it appears to ask people to slice and dice his music. Here’s what it said:

The Aphex Twin ‘Cheetah EP’ uses digital sound generation techniques combined with wave sequencing technology to bring you sounds with movement and depth rarely found on records today. To assure you that your Cheetah EP will give you many years of enjoyment, please be sure to read the owners manual carefully before attempting to operate the Cheetah EP.

If you wish to experiment and create some sounds of your own, first try editing some sounds we’ve already made for you, before attempting to create a patch from scratch.

We sincerely hope that having battled through the programming of the Cheetah EP, you have not become familiar with the exceptional potential of this record.

Have fun programming, and if you create any superb patches and tones which you feel deserve to be appreciated by other Cheetah EP buyers, send a MIDI System Exclusive Dump of them, on a disc to us at WARP and if we also think they are superb, you could be rewarded for your efforts. Try us!

If none of that made any sense, at least you can understand the information about the release below.
