To mark the release of Stor Eiglass, Squarepusher, Marshmallow Laser Feast (MLF), Blue Zoo and Rob Pybus have come together to create not just a standard music video, but a virtual reality (VR) 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 from Squarepusher’s critically acclaimed Damogen Furies album.
For the YouTube 360º experience: head to ( https://youtu.be/6Olt-ZtV_CE ) in 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).
