Aphex Twin had a late night slot on Adult Swim where his new music was to premiere, but the visuals failed to pass the epilepsy test, resulting in the slot being scrapped.
The five-minute slot at 1:30am EDT was later cancelled after the new Aphex Twin track failed to pass the Harding test for photosensitive epilepsy.
Taking to Twitter, the creative director of Adult Swim confirmed that the slot had been cancelled amid safety concerns, and will instead be debuted online.
Didn’t pass the Harding test, so we will be premiering it online.— KING ATOMSK DEMARCO (@Clarknova1) August 6, 2018
The Collapse EP has been promoted in an obscure way, as last week Aphex Twin billboards appeared in London's Elephant and Castle station, New York, Italy's Turin and Hollywood.
Aphex Twin has always been looking for unique and creative ways to announce or advertise his projects. Collapse will follow on from his 2014 album Syro, which was initially promoted with a blimp hovering over London.
