Fortunately for me, I was able to sit in on Flying Lotus’ sound check when he came to perform to a sold out crowd at the Fox Theatre in Oakland. The sound was crisp and heavy, just like you hear when you listen to Flylo’s music through headphones, and the stage’s presentation was of course, immensely stunning.
Thankfully, Flying Lotus posted a mini-documentary that peeks behind the scenes of the audio/visual extravaganza of his “Until the Quiet Comes” tour. The Red Bull Music Academy helped out with developing “Layer 3”, a method of transporting Flylo into outer dimensions using two transparent scrims and interactive front and rear projectors mastered by visual artists Strangeloop and Timeboy, and conjuring nothing short of the acid-fried Space Odyssey “Stargate” scene.
