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.”
From inception, Squarepusher has worked on both the sonic and visual aspects of ‘Ufabulum’ as a united body of work. Now, following rapturously-received live performances of the material at events in Manchester, San Francisco and New York, Squarepusher fans from around the world will have the chance to experience the live spectacle as captured in the Dark Steering video for themselves.
‘Ufabulum’ is released on phosphorescent Special Edition Vinyl and Special Edition CD (both include 3 track Enstrobia EP on CD), phosphorescent T-Shirt with album download, Regular CD and Download formats.
