Flying Lotus Presents:
Layer 3 explores the technology and inspirations behind Flying Lotus’
highly praised new live show supporting the recently released Until the Quiet Comes album. The
six-minute short documentary 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 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.
