78-finger Guitar, 22 Drums, Beyond-Human.
Squarepusher and robot band from Japan in Music of the Future collaboration.

Referred to as "an attempt to break new ground for emotional machine music" by its composer Squarepuhser, "Sad Robot Goes Funny" features the superhuman prowess of Z-MACHINES, showcasing in particular the stupendous chops of the guitarist playing multiple melody lines with 78 fingers and 12 picks at lightning speed in the latter half of the song.
This makes it a truly groundbreaking piece of music from Squarepusher to open the way for new music of the future.

このSquarepusherが書き下ろした楽曲「SAD ROBOT GOES FUNNY」は、Squarepusher が「"今回の試みはエモーショナルなマシーンミュージック"という新しい領域を開拓するものである」とコメントを寄せるように、Z-MACHINESの超人的な演奏能力を引き出した楽曲に仕上がっており、特に楽曲後半では78本の指と12個のピックが超高速で複数のメロディラインを奏でる超絶テクが存分に生かされています。それと同時に無機的なマシーンのイメージを覆す心を揺さぶられるようなストーリー性のある楽曲に仕上がっており、まさに鬼才Squarepusherが未来に向かって新しい音楽ジャンルを切り開いた画期的な楽曲に仕上がりました。

映像監督:真鍋 大度 (ライゾマティクス)
