Interview and live performance of 'Drax 2' for The Creators Project
Squarepusher explains about 'Drax 2'..
"As a boy I had a Ladybird book about power stations that I used to re-read every day. I'm obsessed with electrical energy and especially in the vast quantities generated by power stations. The sound of the massive electric motor from a fairground Ferris Wheel has always stayed humming in my head and lots of my synth sounds refer to it, as they do in this piece. From there I tried to generate images of bizarre transitory phenomena that I imagined could be found in the huge furnaces of power stations."
The release of this film follows the 'Dark Steering' song and video. Due to the response, we have made the song available to buy now as a single track download on all good digital services. You can also purchase the video in high quality on iTunes here.
