After catching Flying Lotus’ bewildering beat bonanza on the Mary Anne Hobbs stage at Sonar, we’re looking forward to August when he comes over to London for a series of three special shows, the first here since the release of new album ‘Cosmogramma’.
Firstly, on Saturday 14th August he takes over favourite ‘secret East London location’ Herne Street Car Park, heading up a label showcase from Brainfeeder. On Monday 16 August you can catch him at Tate Modern where he’ll be providing a live films score to Harry Smith’s animated '60s classic ‘Heaven & Earth Magic’. And on Wednesday 18th of August he rounds off with INFINITY live at the ICA, an ensemble of musicians from ‘Cosmogramma’ including Thundercat, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Ravi Coltrane, Rebekah Raff and more.
If that’s whet your appetite you can also watch Inside the Codex: the Art of Cosmogramma, a short film featuring Leigh J. McCloskey.
