History was made last night at the 2017 FYF Festival in Los Angeles, when Flying Lotus revealed a groundbreaking holographic visual show to accompany his musical performance.
The show, another collaboration between 3D Live | AXO and Flying Lotus’s visual team, astounded the festival attendees at LA’s Exposition Park with never-before seen stereoscopic content, custom-build for 3D Live’s holographic 3D LED wall.
Audience members knew to prepare themselves for something special, as custom-designed stereoscopic 3D glasses were shipped out to every ticket-holder as part of the FYF welcome package. The glasses, which were branded with Flying Lotus’s logo, along with those of his labels– Brainfeeder and parent Warp Records– contributed to the air of mystery surrounding FlyLo’s set.
Needless to say, once Flying Lotus took the stage at 12:20 AM, closing out FYF’s Friday lineup, no fan was disappointed. FlyLo’s otherworldly music paired perfectly with the visual show, a rollercoaster ride through images that are equally beautiful, visceral, and mind-bending.
The content itself was tirelessly crafted by AXO’s lead designers– Aron Johnson and Ian Valentine– working closely alongside Strangeloop, Flying Lotus’s long-time visual collaborator and live VJ. The stereoscopic conversions of all content were done by 3D Live.
This performance, including its visual elements, marks a game-changing moment in the world of live music. The show is peerlessly innovative, both in terms of the fearless and dazzling artistic content, but also in its mind-blowing 3D delivery on 3D Live’s patented 3D LED wall. The FYF audience was appropriately stunned by the immersive, holographic 3D visuals that surrounded Flying Lotus during his FYF performance– boding well for the introduction of stereoscopic 3D into the live performance arena.
