Flying Lotus

Flying Lotus is an experimental multi-genre music producer, electronic musician.

I’ve not come across an artist that have so many musical genres!

apart from the Warp sound, there are so many other genres.

the thing that got me interested was I kept hearing his music in many of the films I’ve been seeing lately. i.e. I just watched Nasty Baby, and there he was again.

Clapping for the Wrong Reasons’ (just one of many…)

Oneohtrix Point Never

one of the reasons I blog about music is, that music is my main passion.

photography second, and film third.

I’m also a passionate music appreciation person.
i.e. I made myself listen to a ‘Tiesto’ album yesterday. LOL !

Oneohtrix Point Never is yet another very talented and interesting artist.

I first noticed him when he released and  album on Warp called R Plus Seven.

I’ve just listened to all of his albums, and it was both challenging and enjoyable.

as a kid I was exposed to a lot of different music like the soundtrack to The Pajama Game & Engelbert Humperdinck…then as a teenager, I was exposed to classical music and also jazz. since that time mu appreciation of music goes far and wide.

I listen to a hell of a lot of electronic music, as it’s my main stay when out and about on the mp3 player….kind of like a soundtrack to ‘life’ as sedge808.

his music is very difficult to pin-down, in that there is such a mix of styles, one cannot name one (apart from electronic).

________________

i’m a huge fan of electronic music.

it started in the 80’s with The Human League & Depeche mode. then progressed to bands like orbital & autechre & pete manlook & klaus schulze.

the love affair continues as there is an endless amount of music to exlpore and enjoy.

autechre – the ligeti of electronic music

one of my top five electronic bands is autechre.
i have all their albums & singles.

the are from the uk and are on warp records.

many people find (a lot of) their music discordant.
i’m the opposite. i enjoy the music intensely. (maybe avoid if i have a head-ache lol!).

i don’t really like popular music…mostly because it is overly played i.e. the four seasons by vivaldi is brilliant, but has been played to death due to the copy write laws. (50 years after death is a free-for-all).

incunabula was their first album. “incunabel” in latin, means “first” or “first pressing of a book”.

incunabula

they have cool names for their songs, which have varied meanings

i.e. kalpol introl: (track 1. from incunabula)
• “calpol” is the name of a popular children’s cough syrup in the uk/ireland.
i don’t really have a fave album but i’ve listened to ep7 the most.
