This video, embedded below, 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.”
