Are the songs composed by a human or generated by computer?

It's impossible to tell with Squarepusher because he's a good enough jazz musician to compose this kind of stuff from scratch. It probably has some generative elements just to save him the trouble of manually inputting it all into a sequencer.

ZIMA? I haven't thought about you since the late 90s (don't knock it til you tried it, Zima and Orange Juice is delicious!)

Seriously though this is cool. San Fransisco's Captured by Robots does something similar but it's a different, mostly comedic take. It's amazing to see live but I don't really like the music on its own without the robots. Squarepusher on the other hand.. I haven't thought about Jenkinson for almost a decade. This and the new Aphex Twin have rekindled a love for a genre that's mostly been taken over by anyone with Ableton Live and a decent PA system.

(err.. new Aphex Twin announcement) :)

Aphex has been dabbling in this sort of thing since Drukqs. He used a mechanical piano for a lot of stuff on that album and he also has a machine that triggers real percussion. Makes me wonder if Squarepusher going public with this technology pushed him into releasing a new album.

I guess there's going to be listening parties in a couple of days (as of Sept. 2nd.) I'm really excited. I hate to sound all hipstery but when I first heard Idiotheque I wasn't impressed. AFX Squarepusher and the like were doing that for years. So all of a sudden everyone likes it, but it felt like this weird forcefed appreciation because it was Radiohead. You're in college so you like Radiohead. I dunno.. the band's genius but anyway I put on Red Hot Car at one of our house's parties and people started to leave, which was taken off and replaced with Idiotheque and everyone started dancing again. I was like "goddamnit..."

Scariest looking band to ever play boring financial institution advertisement sounding music. 32nd notes, fifty guitar picks, no memorable melody.
