Flying Lotus 'Noomi Rapace' (film score)
Published Sep 29, 2014Despite prepping his new record You're Dead!, Flying Lotus has found the time to contribute the score to a new film about Swedish actor Noomi Rapace.
The seven-act short film was directed by British artist and designer Aitor Throup and depicts the Prometheus actress being sculpted into one of Throup's signature mesh creations. The score features six previously unreleased pieces of music from FlyLo that were devised following conversations between the musician and director.
The film premiered on Nowness today (September 29), which describes the piece as "an extremely personal, hauntingly beautiful and subtly brutal documentation of a subject through the use of various layers of physical, literal and metaphorical processes — reflecting the complexities of not only the protagonist, but of all three artists involved."
You're Dead!, meanwhile, arrives on October 7 via Warp, but you can hear new material from Flying Lotus scoring the short film Noomi Rapace below.
