Whether you’re a fan of epileptic light shows, hip welding masks or electronica, this video may be of interest. Electronic artist Squarepusher released the video for “Dark Steering” today. The track is set to be on his upcoming album, Ufabulum, set for release May 15th via Warp Records.
Here’s what Squarepusher had to say about the track and video:
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.
So there you have it, we now know what it looks like for spaceships to travel through libraries. Let us know what you think of the video in the comment section below!
