As demonstrated in a few videos and press articles recently, Squarepusher's new project revolves around writing music for accoustic instruments to be played by humanoid machines. This "Music for Robots", allegedly impossible for humans to perform, ends up sounding like most of Squarepusher's jazz ventures: groovy, playful, but surprisingly un-robotic. His electronic side is obviously relegated far in the background, and while (human) musicians might notice that the robots can do things they themselves couldn't, the musicality of the whole thing is not particularly surprising. More of a concept than a musical piece, "Music For Robots" is probably doomed to stay a curiosity for collectors and researchers.
