Squarepusher has been a long time influence on us. And in true fashion, continues takes musical concepts to new and interesting places.
This video, embedded above, takes a behind the scenes look at Squarepusher’s music robots, the Z-Machines, which are featured on his latest EP.
“For me there has always been something fascinating about the encounter of the unfamiliar with the familiar”, notes Squarepusher. “I have long been an advocate of taking fresh approaches to existing instrumentation as much as I am an advocate of trying to develop new instruments, and being able to rethink the way in which, for example, an electric guitar can be used is very exciting.”
MACH -Robot guitarist challenging the speed of over BPM1000
ASHURA -Robot drummer that can play the most complex rhythm on 22 drums
COSMO -Robot keyboard player resembling a future life form

We had an amazing time at SXSW. So many cool people coming together for a common idea and we are honored to have been a part of it. Big thank you to The GRAMMY Museum, The Green Room and Antiquiet for inviting us out. And an even bigger thanks to all of our fans and friends who made the trip to see us.
