Video: Squarepusher: "Dark Steering"


Looking like some alternate version of Daft Punk or the video game Dead Space, the new visual for Squarepusher's "Dark Steering" from his forthcoming Warp release Ufabulum, out May 15 in the U.S. and May 14 in Europe have arrived. Created by Jenkinson himself, the robotic LED visuals act as a teaser of what we'll see on his upcoming tour.

Squarepusher on Dark Steering:
"For a while I had apocalyptic nightmares about trails of nuclear missiles in the night sky. So I aimed to recreate that strange combination of exhilaration, terror and sadness both visually and emotionally through this piece. It lead to the idea of a spacecraft leaving earth at vast speed to escape, but oddly the music also made me think of it flying through a library. So I generated the visual aspect such that, as the piece progresses, it seems as if the viewer is ever accelerating through massive corridors of books."
