AE_LIVE is a series of live recordings by British electronic music duo Autechre, initially released on 29 October 2015 by Warp Records. Consisting of nine soundboard recordings, each roughly an hour long, made during their 2014-2015 live tour which had its inception in the Warp25 25th anniversary celebration of the label Warp Records that occurred in Krakow, Poland on 20 September 2014, the duo's first live shows since 2011. It was released abruptly to members of the Autechre mailing list, who were given invite-only permission to purchase the recordings.
On 1 November 2015, AE_STORE_, an Autechre-only Bleep.com substore, released the album to the public. On 8 December 2015, the AE_STORE_ was updated to include 5 more tracks.
AE_LIVE is by far the duo's largest release of material, at launch lasting over 259 minutes, with the extra tracks added on 8 December 2015 pushing the total to nearly 560 minutes. The recordings are accompanied by abstract geometric artwork from The Designers Republic.
All tracks written by Sean Booth and Rob Brown.
