Squarepusher Rocks with Bots
Electronic musician Squarepusher (a.k.a. Tom Jenkinson) has been writing music for computers, synths, and sequencers for two decades. But his new EP, Music for Robots, marks the first time he’s collaborated with a robot band. Squarepusher talks about writing music for a 78-fingered guitarist, a 22-armed drummer, and a laser-shooting keyboardist.
