Pretty Lights :: Flips + OffBeat Magazine Story

Tune in and experience select hand-picked improvised “Flips,” culled from our 2016 journeys from Episodic Festival stops, and shows from our West and California runs.

Derek sat down with OffBeat Magazine (New Orleans, LA) to discuss the newly released ‘Flips’ project, the Episodic Festival + Live Band creation. Check out the story – here 

Derek on “Flips”

“We ended up devising something we call ‘flips.” We’ll start with a produced song, and everyone has a philosophy for playing on top of the produced songs. Alvin has acoustic drums that he’ll play on top of it, and we also have drum triggers for electronic drum sounds so we can get a produced sound from the live kit. When I call a ‘flip’ everyone knows that I’m about to filter out the produced track. When the produced music disappears, the live musicians completely switch their sound to something that’s more electronic. Borahm will drop into a synth bass, Alvin will switch to an electronic kick and an electronic snare. It’s like a quick crossfade. It allows us to go from the produced track, with the band accentuating it, to a fully live band without losing something…It’s completely improvised but we’ve put a lot of time into making sure they know, stylistically, where the bounds are.”
