Red Bull Music Academy explores the technology and inspirations behind the Los Angeles-based producer Flying Lotus's new live show supporting his recent album, 'Until The Quiet Comes' (Warp Records).
Flying Lotus (born Steven Ellison) and visual artists Strangeloop and Timeboy have concocted a show entitled 'Layer 3,' which sees the 2006 Academy participant Ellison wedged between transparent scrims set with interactive front and rear projectors.
The visual acid trip conjures the psychedelic Star Gate scenery of Kubrick’s seminal '2001: A Space Odyssey,' mixing Hubble-like atmospheres with 3D pattern grids and light bursts appearing to sprout from Ellison’s body, rendering the live show a truly mind-blowing package.
