Flying Lotus Presents: Layer 3 explores the technology and inspirations behind Flying Lotus’ highly praised new live show (see live quotes below). The six-minute short documentary—a Red Bull Music Academy Film—recently premiered on Wired and follows the Los Angeles based producer as he, along with visual artists Strangeloop and Timeboy, concocted the visuals for his live show entitled “Layer 3.” The show sees FlyLo aka Steven Ellison—a 2006 Red Bull Music Academy participant—making his music 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.

Flying Lotus is on tour supporting his recent album Until The Quiet Comes, which was recently released on Warp Record. Look for Flying Lotus to next bring his live show to the UR1 Music Festival in Miami, FL (Dec 8-9) and the King Plow Arts Center in Atlanta, GA (Dec 12).
