Red Bull Music Academy explores the technology and inspirations behind the Los Angeles-based producer Steven Ellison aka Flying Lotus’ new live show supporting his recent album, Until The Quiet Comes, released on Warp Records.
Visual artists Strangeloop and Timeboy alongside Flying Lotus 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.
Here is the behind the scene look at how they put it together..
