The next Flying Lotus project is a multimedia collaboration with visual artist Miwa Matreyek, due next summer, based on "Los Angeles's imagery and sounds," titled The Mapping of Countries Yet To Come. Pressed if music is still his main focus, Ellison shrugs. "Sometimes I'm concerned about records, sometimes I want to make a movie."
And maybe that's where his frantic style comes from — rushing to execute one idea while it's still fresh and before the next one beams in. He insists there's method to the madness, even if he's not much for explaining it. "I think the thing to do," he says, "is to find out what the element is that you're inspired by, and try and find out what inspired that."
