"Ben Jones and I went to Massachusetts College of Art together in the 1990s and I've been a huge fan of his work as both a solo artist and a member of Paper Rad ever since," commented Dave Konopka, bassist and guitarist for Battles.
"I have always thought that there would be a great synthesis of Ben's experimental animation and Battles' technicolour sounds – a joining of two forms that I have been wanting to make happen for years," he added.
The film, which lacks an obvious narrative, is a riot of brightly coloured moving graphics and animation, intercut with footage of visitors admiring artwork in a gallery.
When Battles first approached Jones to collaborate, he had recently finished work on a solo show. Pieces from the exhibition feature throughout the Dot Net video.
"Through his incorporation of a live-action gallery scene intercut with his authentically one-of-a-kind animation, Ben made a video for Dot Net that is one of my favourite Battles video collaborations and absolute joy to watch over and over again," commented Konopka.
Alongside the imagery of digitally-generated three-dimensional shapes, the film focuses on individuals apparently absorbed in games on tablets or smartphones, appearing to transport the viewer into the moving world of the game itself.
At one point the action cuts to footage of two people playing table tennis, later echoed in a graphic Pong-style representation of the game. The film even appears to break the fourth wall towards the end, as a man seems to peer out of the screen and at the viewer themselves.
"The exploration of the digital territory between abstract graphic user interfaces, polyrhythms and human interaction was a paramount inspiration of this video," said Jones, who has also created shows for Adult Swim and Cartoon Network.
"Prodding and proving the causality of passive engagement vs hyper-addiction concerning the influence of 'screen time' (using the video and audio of an iPad or iPhone or etc.)," he added. "In the end we kept returning to this jump off: is this a dope music vid to have on your Apple watch? Yes or No?"
The film will be broadcast as part of a half-hour programme on Channel 4 in 2016, which will also feature further collaborations between Warp musicians and directors.
Dot Net is taken from Battles' album La Di Da Di, which was released on Warp Records on September 18.
