Squarepusher Quotes 2137774

I've never been about trying to promote a brand of Squarepusher. I've never been keen on that idea that these are the character traits that I've got to stick with and amplify and keep pushing forward and pushing on the public. I'm really happy to throw it all away and start each record with a blank slate but I concede you've got a point, there are things I can't get rid of, no matter how hard I try. — Squarepusher

One of the more distant concerns is with the visual interpretation of the music. I find it fascinating but I don't always particularly get involved with it. — Squarepusher

Squarepusher Quotes 1663611

One of the more dispiriting things I think about endless touring is hearing the same piece of music over and over again and I end up feeling like a fraud. — Squarepusher

Squarepusher Quotes 2198936

I didn't want to try and borrow kudos from Indonesian culture. I was trying to get a fresh perspective on these instruments. I'm not doing a Paul Simon Gracelands and stealing all this African music and not give anyone any credit. — Squarepusher

Squarepusher Quotes 2096517

People have often assumed that for music to be emotionally powerful it has to come directly from a human hand, whereas I disagree with that, and enjoy proving these people wrong. This project is an excellent way of exploring that area more. — Squarepusher

Squarepusher Quotes 1778838

I'm trying to fly the flag for the days of electronic music where people who are making it are also building the gear because that was what was happening in the very early days of electronic music. And that spirit is one of the things that really appeals to me about electronic music so I'm putting this forward as a way to keep that. — Squarepusher

Squarepusher Quotes 1739200

Stereotyping and generating brands around musicians I think contributes to their eventual demise. — Squarepusher

I want to change peoples' minds about music, I want to bring the really brutal experimental stuff to peoples' attention. — Squarepusher

Squarepusher Quotes 1644196

My plan is if you come to the shows in the first run of dates the versions you'll hear live are quite close to the record. But because I can set this up identically afterwards in a hotel room I can actually work when I'm on the move. The aim is that all the pieces will have had substantial remixes and different parts added and subtracted. — Squarepusher

Squarepusher Quotes 697169

Squarepusher Quotes 365779

My father had a phase of having jukeboxes all over the house. He was a music lover but he was also into musical machinery. Not instruments, he was never interested in playing particularly but there would be these odd objects, like valve amplifiers being dismantled on the kitchen table. My mum wasn't massively keen on that, but it was part of the environment. — Squarepusher

Squarepusher Quotes 282161

What happens in the studio is technically the same thing that happens on the stage. In the past I had to make quite brutal adaptations of the material to make it work on stage. I don't always like doing that because sometimes you're shaving away the things that you actually quite like about them, the spontaneity of it. — Squarepusher

Squarepusher Quotes 226941

There's a really rough and relatively consistent hierarchy of concerns. My musical interests come first and principally my fascination with how notes and rhythms interlock. Then comes the technical side like programming, instruments and designing instruments. Next is production and mixing and beyond that I start to care less. — Squarepusher
