Deciphering Aphex Twin’s Newest Vid ‘T69 Collapse’
Algorithms on acid? Inside a mainframe’s computational memory? Check out Aphex Twin’s trippy visuals that could give you photosensitive epilepsy.
After a week of speculating over the soundsmith’s enigmatic billboards that were spotted in cities around the world, Aphex Twin addicts now have a new track to metabolize, along with a titillating, totally glitched-out vid teeming with subliminal signals and brain-bending syncopation. Welcome to the sublime.
‘T69 Collapse’ is a mesmeric digital collage embedded with cryptic messages, hallucinatory hues and seizure-inducing rhythms. After promptly causing Warp’s official Aphex Twin website to crash yesterday, the vid has whipped fans into a frenzy over the subtler meanings and stealthy symbolism that unfolds frame by freaky frame.
Next month the entire album, ‘Collapse’, drops worldwide (on September 14). Designed and refined by Weirdcore, the oddball anonymous artist who has done collabs with Tame Impala, Gwen Stefani and Adidas, Aphex Twin’s video depicts morphologies of shape and sound; moving mathematics; form, fragments, fractals and the emancipatory openness of the mind’s eye (or a computational brain). Phew.
Infused with machine-gun rhythms and simulation theory galore (are we actually living in a hologram?), the magnificent mindfuck artwork conjures the Matrix and invokes The Singularity. Described by music and art critics as ‘an AI on psychedelic drugs,’ ‘T69 Collapse’ is a psychic avalanche and transmundane metaphysical masterpiece. We especially love the pulsating digital anus, the infinite loops and the transmogrified topographies done in the image of Aphex Twin’s logo.
Also, this video was banned by numerous TV networks and websites for safety reasons because it failed to pass the Harding test for photosensitive epilepsy. Cool! Now watch below…
