Amber, released by Warp Records in 1994, is the second full-length album by the electronic music group Autechre. Amber has a more ambient, less percussion-based sound compared to Autechre's first release Incunabula.

The sleeve is designed by the Sheffield based design agency The Designers Republic. The cover image is a photograph taken by Nick Meers, depicting rock formations in Cappadocia, Turkey.[3]

Production[edit]

Amber is Autechre's first real 'album' created as such, their first release, Incunabula, being more of a compilation of older material.[4] It was written in the six months after their first album,[5] "really quickly" according to Sean Booth, whilst they were also writing more live material and touring. Some of this live material ended up on the Anti EP.
