Squarepusher shares a stunning video for his new single “Terminal Slam.”
In his new music video for the track “Terminal Slam” electronic music genius Tom Jenkinson, better known as Squarepusher shows Shibuya Crossing in a glitched nightmarish style.
Video is directed by Daito Manabe. Video shows a pair of augmented reality goggles that visually disrupt advertisement at the Tokyo's Shibuya Crossing. “The concept began with the idea of implementing the near future, not the distant future, using modern technology”, says Manabe. “In the near future, It would be exciting to be able to rewrite ads as freely as is depicted in this music video while wearing such a device and wandering around the city.”
‘Terminal Slam’ is the latest single to be released from the forthcoming Squarepusher's album titled “Be Up a Hello.”
Manabe is one of the founders of the Rhizomatics research group. She has collaborated with Squarepusher on a number of projects, including live visuals for his Shobaleader One live show, writes FACT Magazine. Rhizomatiks will also contribute visuals to the opening ceremony of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Be Up A Hello is out on January 31, while ‘Terminal Slam’ is available on Youtube.
