Aphex Twin's Adult Swim Segment Canceled After Failing Epilepsy Test
Aphex Twin is ready to release his newest EP, Collapse, with a five-minute segment of the same name set to premiere during Cartoon Network's Adult Swim program on Monday (Aug. 6). However, the clip got pulled for photosensitivity safety reasons.
Adult Swim SVP and Creative Director Jason DeMarco confirmed the news on Twitter, noting that the segment did not pass the Harding test, which analyzes video content for flashing and stationary patterns which may trigger seizures in those who suffer from epilepsy. However, the clip will still be available online.

While there is no official release date for Collapse, Aphex Twin's logo has been popping up on billboards all around the world. The five-song EP will follow his 2016 release, Cheetah.
