About Album

Surfing on Sine Waves is a studio album by Polygon Window, a pseudonym for the English electronic music producer Richard D. James, better known by the alias Aphex Twin. It was originally released on 11 January 1993 by Warp. It is the second release in Warp's Artificial Intelligence series. Polygon Window Surfing On Sine Waves Label: Wax Trax Records TVT 7204-2, TVT Records TVT 7204-2 Format: CD, Album Country: Original UK 1993 11 Songs. Surfing On Sine Waves. Polygon Window. Electronic 1993. Surfing on Sine Waves is rarely rated with the Selected Ambient Works albums or the early singles collected on Classics, but it's still a key record from the era that put James on the map and began the myth-making that would mushroom to Howard Hughes proportions around the time of the Windowlicker single. Listening to Surfing on Sine Waves in the context of electronic music circa 2002, I get an idea what it must have been like to listen to Buddy Holly in 1970. Naturally, there are both positive and negative aspects to re-experiencing artifacts from an earlier time. The opening track, Polygon Window, plants its feet firmly in both camps, with a brisk series of beats playing against the slightly dark, slightly quirky keyboard sounds with which the Twin first made his name. It's a good harbinger for the rest of Surfing on Sine Waves, which satisfies, if not always astonishes, like Aphex does at his best.

Complétez votre collection Polygon album is one of the last times he used self-made instruments to make techno, before switching to his drill and bass sound. Therefore, this work is a must have, that is if you are a collector. If you are just a music fan, I suggest you look into his Aphex stuff first, and work your way to this one.

As per comments below... please reissue this album warp, the demand is high.
I remember obtaining this from my local record outlet entitled “BLOWS' as I was a smallish child, when. If you please indulge, allow me this-.It was a fanciful place, full of enhanced, cryptic atmosphere. First, you had to climb on several layers of machine and other grim electric agent to get up, as it was on further floor hemisphere if not to get. Then pass many layers of sleeve choked, covered with dust of discarded and unwanted sleeves with sleeve lie for mysterious old croaky beyond the music for which I had no purpose of understanding.Then go to the counter where a fearful cobwebbed agency sat in apprehension again, waiting. No creature is lurking. Lurch to life and its mine with making the sale. While they find the music again I spy on the sign beyond the counter that graphic list of the best sellers of years past, skeletal, but no more. THEN this very piece of exceptional music illuminates my day when I think of this little adventure, repeated in tiny for all to see and haunt the dreams lie, above peace and beautiful.THENE,, 82This refers to an earlier version
It's 2019 and I am still waiting for a repress. I am sure I am not the only person who is willing to hand over their hard earned money to WARP for a new 180g press of this golden piece of artistry. We've had all the other classic Aphex lps repressed (minus a few) so please let us collectors add this gem to our discog. Like most people I don't feel like paying too much for a used and abused copy.
The bonus track here, does not sound like it belongs on the album at all.
what a beautiful sleeve what a beautiful sleeve beautiful sleeve
Looks like this album is now officially 26 years old today!
Still mesmerised by track 7 now as I was when I first heard it on release. One of the best Acid tracks period.
Me too, John Peel's Sounds of the Suburbs reminded me of that
Goddamnit WARP. Repress this on vinyl already. The used market is overpriced. Take my $45 please.
Gold as Heart
People who push for represses are the bane of true record collectors. Spend your money on an original release you windowlickers.
What an ignorant comment. You overtly advocate for fewer people to have access to the best way in which to experience music. What a hateful way to hoard your valuable records.
Bane of record dealers, not collectors. A decent copy of this on black vinyl is 3 figures now, it needs to be repressed IMO.
I disagree. Represses are good for everybody. People who don't want to pay out the wazoo for an original can buy a repress, and it brings down the price of the originals for people who want to buy originals. Only reason you wouldn't want a repress is if you want to make more money selling your original. Also, screw off with the gate-keeping
I can't make my mind up to what album is my favourite from Richard James, Selected Ambient Works Vol I & II or this absolute gem!?Seriously beautiful tracks and some eerie, dark tracks like the Untitled C3 which has a haunting synth melting through it with a superb, creaky sounding TB303 right in the forefront!Honestly from start to finish this is a work of art!!Introducing Integrated Inside with electronic techno music, controlled manual by Aphex mind programme..Acid might kill the population!
Yes, WARP you gave us represses by Autechre, BOC...So, now it's the time for this masterpiece!!!Please!!!!
Time for a 3LP Repress!! (include the bonus tracks) Whaddya say WARP?
It'll happen in time, I'm sure. I'm sure they're just waiting for the right time - marketing wise. They're already repressing many of the original AI releases (Ae, B12). They'll probably wait for a time when RDJ isn't pushing new stuff.
absolutely, the fact that warp has been re-pressing all of RDJ's other records and not this is a travesty.
The best techno album of all time. Harsh, ambient & melodic monotone sound...
Superb, an absolute masterpiece and a record that I have played so much i really need a new copy!
Not as definitive as Selected Ambient works, but still very nice.
Ditto what octo7 said about "Track 7 (untitled)". It has always been my favorite cut off this album and one of my favorite acid tracks of all time. I saw Jay Daniel play in Detroit a couple years ago and he dropped that cut and I got so hype for it. Personal favorite of mine. The rest of the LP I could write about as well but "Track 7 (untitled)" is a masterpiece.
do know universal indicator-green 7"10"and 12" some tracks are almost simular
Track 7 (Untitled) is the most atmospheric and brooding piece of acidhouse I've ever heard. It sounds like the Cornish landscape in audio form. This is one of RDJ's most coherent albums and a personal favorite of mine. It has some interesting drum programming throughout and lots of spooky synth sounds to keep things mysterious. The previously unreleased bonus tracks on this version fit right into the mood of the album. Fans of Biosphere will also love this.
one of my favorites.very nice.always genius (Richard D. James)

If I have to pick an album by Richard D James it has to be this one, it has all of the styles of the music he does. The ambient, techno, acid & the madness. UT1 dot is the stand out track for me, I love the flow & the techno style robot voice in the background still sounds great. If It Really is me is like a dream swimming in your brain, it's a brillant mellow tune. Quino-Pheq is a great tune to end the album with, the beauty of this track makes me feel like I'm im the middle of nowhere with not a cloud in site. I shouldn't just pick a few tunes of this album 'cause the whole album is amazing, even if your not into this style of music you need to check it out. You'll not be dissapointed.
Amazing Album, very unique, melodic, relaxing, dark, energetic, and cool to trip. My favourite tracks are . "supremacy 2", "UT1-dot", "untitled track" and "Quino - phec". This is one of the best Albums by Aphex twin.
I think this is RDJames best work... I wish I knew of an album or two he's done other than this one where he was as consistent and as good.
How many were pressed? Mine is #906, so I'm guessing there were at least 1000. Are there any that weren't numbered?
mine isn't numbered , there is no sticker on the sleeve
I don't think mine had a number...
I remember purchasing this album after hearing the incredible and incendiary warehouse banger Quoth. Expecting more similar music, my delusion was big. It turned out that Quoth was an exception here, if I may put it so. By far the heaviest, rawest and in-your-face piece of music on the album. Beware that back then I had little to no knowledge of Warp's sound and musical tendencies. Now, not to leave the impression of a biased and pissed off customer, let me reflect upon the rest of the album. The music is not bad at all, ranging from early IDM, ambient, break beat techno, with acid lead segments from time to time. Unfortunately, not much of it sticks out and strikes you like Quoth did to me. Sure it is all quality, and some if it is mighty fine; the haunting melody on Polygon Window taking turns with the memorable acid lead, the forceful and driving opener, the quiet ambience of Quino-Phec. The rest is skip material in my book. A cool sequence here and there, some occasional playful acid synths and lush pads aside, "Surfing on sine waves" does not have much in store for my ears. For early Richard D. James mind blowing material, I suggest heading right to the Aphex Twin "Classics" release on R & S. As for Polygon Window, I urge everybody to go check out Quoth, one of the most ferocious tunes he has ever done. My highest recommendation would be buying either the CD Maxi [WAP 33 CD] or the vinyl counterpart [WAP 33], both of which have two astonishing mixes of Quoth, plus two other worthwhile tunes.
When I first bought this record I didn't like it. In fact, I tried to return it but the shop wouldn't have it. Being a fan of more chord based electronica (RDJ's other Ambient works, Black Dog Prod, B12 etc) I had never heard anything like this before. Polygon Window's brooding atmospherics were too moody for me.With time passed, what an album! Surfing On Sine Waves is a unique body of work. Both its songs and packaging appear deeply inspired by the sea and landscape of Cornwall. The songs are varied in style (warehouse party-shaking Quoth sits alongside woeful songs like UT1 - Dot). But the atmosphere is consistent and mesmerising.Find some way to buy or borrow this release.

If you are into mainstream or chart music, this may take getting used to and require patience. If you like dance music but don't want to have to move like mad all the time, this is great. A few of the tracks are ambient, while a few are pounding and repetative. As a whole, this early techno album is worth a listen if you are familar with Aphex Twin's work, but might not be the best place to start.
Richard David James has released many albums that could be considered classics but I think this one is certainly on top of that list. Some good dance-floor tracks and some other made-for-headphones tunes makes this album a most complete one. At the time of its original release date, he was still under contract with R&S and well known for the 2 EPs he had release there (Didgeridoo and Xylem Tube) so the fact that this was his 1st LP released on Warp made that album very special to me. The track 'Quixote' still give me the shivers and reminds me of the good dance-floor moments I had as a DJ...
This is RDJ's return to the classic ambiacid of SAW I. You can hear his progressions into more hardcore acid (Quoth) but also trying to be a little more commercial perhaps (If It Really Is Me). This is a great album. If you like SAWI, you'll love this.
This album is some spectacular eariler Richard D. James works. Some of it shades his future, though all of it is apart of his past styles. My favorite track on here is "Redruth School", and also "Quino-Phec" and "Supremecy II" are quite good.
This is more like it!! More previously unreleased tracks from RDJ is always a good thing...turns out that Portreath Harbour is now my favourite track on this classic album. One of RDJ's premiere achievements, alongside SAWII - now if only he'd agree to a re-release on vinyl....
One of the most deffinative lp's of the 90's; listen to the soaring srings etc...You will not be dissapointed! R D J has produced some stuff in his time, but this does best prove his talent, and more.
