Flying Lotus

Saturday, February 12, 2022 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Flying Lotus by Tim Saccenti
Grammy Award–winning producer, composer, rapper, filmmaker, and visionary founder of Brainfeeder records, Flying Lotus exists as a musical world unto himself. He synthesizes a vast range of influences—musical and otherwise—into an expansive, yet unmistakable sound that makes him one of today’s foremost artists. The “heir apparent to a near-celestial Afrofuturist force” (The Face) presents a transportive electroacoustic musical blend in Carnegie Hall’s unrivaled acoustics.

He recently executive produced and composed for Netflix’s anime series Yasuke, a show only made possible by an auteur who consistently shows immense care to the audible and visual aspects of his creations.
