Flying Lotus Working On Multimedia Project, ‘The Mapping Of Countries Yet To Come’

    The latest venture of Steven Ellison, aka Flying Lotus, is one that finds him stepping away from his Brainfeeder collective for a multimedia project with animator/filmmaker Miwa Matreyek. The two Los Angeles natives are working together on a piece called The Mapping of Countries Yet to Come that will incorporate FlyLo’s jazzy electronic sounds and Matreyek’s lush animations.

    It aims to “celebrate the present communities surrounding Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock,” according to its website. And right now, the duo of artists is trying to raise funds for the project through a Kickstarter campaign. All donations received will be doubled through a matching grant from the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, according to the Center for the Arts.
