AVGs by Aphex Twin and Squarepusher

All this music industry talk, but not a lot of talk about the music itself. There will definitely be some “music music” talk coming soon, but in the meantime I want to share these AVGs (Audio/Visual Gems) that I found over at one of my favorite music messageboard forums at Weightless Recordings.

The first one is by Aphex Twin – the longstanding electronic music figurehead. Please be warned, the beginning of the video has a little mini-movie in it and it contains strong language. It is not for the easily offended. Once the music video starts, it gets incredibly trippy. Complete with Fred Astaire dance moves and Being John Malkovich sensibilities, “Windowlicker” is not messing around with your time. Or is it?

The second one is by Squarepusher – another electronic music guy. It blends old school meets new school of the video game world in which an 8-bit fighter craft coasts over colored spots that sync up with the music of Squarepusher. It views like Centipede meets Guitar Hero.

Thanks to Drew over on the Weightless forums for sharing these videos.

    A little late, but I thought you might want to know: the latter is indeed capture from a video game called Audiosurf.
