Aphex Twin weighs in on US election with tripped out video
The ever-reclusive Richard D. James, or Aphex Twin, has emerged from his self-imposed isolation to share his thoughts on the US election. Perfectly capturing the absurdity of the 2016 cycle, Richard D. James has delivered a mind-bending video depicting Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as warped caricatures of their campaign personalities.
The clip was created by Weirdcore, who has previously constructed videos for artists such as Tame Impala, Radiohead and more. The video arrived with a caption from James, reading: “An Approved message from Aphex Twin.”
The short clip further doubles as a teaser for Aphex Twin’s forthcoming appearance at Day for Night festival in Houston on December 17 — his first US performance in eight years since playing at Coachella in 2008.
