To mark the recent release of Damogen Furies, bleeding-edge artists Squarepusher, Marshmallow Laser Feast (MLF), Blue Zoo and Rob Pybus have come together to create a virtual reality (VR) music video promo that can be experienced via VR headsets, mobiles, tablets and YouTube’s new 360º platform. Following Squarepusher’s long history of exploring the creative possibilities of new technologies, the collaboration delivers a wry, humorous, dystopian narrative to accompany the lead track “Stor Eiglass” from Squarepusher’s critically acclaimed Damogen Furies album.
For the YouTube 360º experience: cut and paste this link (https://youtu.be/6Olt-ZtV_CE) into Chrome (use mouse or keyboard keys W/A/S/D to change perspective) or view via the YouTube app for Android (move device around to view different angles).
