Björk is not the only artist that is going multimedia these days. As Pitchfork points out, Los Angeles beatmsith Flying Lotus is planning an extensive collaboration with artist/animator/filmmaker Miwa Matreyek. The project is titled The Mapping of Countries Yet to Come and intends to find inspiration and direct sampling of northeast Los Angeles’ imagery and sounds, and celebrate the present communities surrounding Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock. If you are interested in The Mapping of Countries Yet to Come you can contribute funds at their Kickstarter page between now and November 30 of this year. If so, your contribution will be doubled by a grant from the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
Slated for a release in June 2012, Matreyek will create an interactive animated projected film with which she will choreograph her movements to match the animation. The accompanying score will be delivered by FlyLo. Stay tuned as this is certainly a release to be on the lookout for.
