Red Bull Music Academy breaks down FlyLo’s Layer 3 project.
“I think as we get older, the idea of magic is just taken from us, there’s less of it and less of it as we get older,” bemoans Steven Ellison, better known as Flying Lotus. “I really try to just dabble in things that feel magical.”
According to a new mini-documentary, that is the mindset behind FlyLo’s Until The Quiet Comes tour visuals, which present the DJ/producer bracketed by two transparent projection screens (hence, three layers).
Made in collaboration with visual artists Strangeloop and Timeboy, the trio have attempted to “[transport] FlyLo into outer dimensions using two transparent scrims and interactive front and rear projectors, conjuring nothing short of the acid-fried Space Odyssey “Stargate” scene.” An ambitious goal from the forward-thinking artist.
