The Flaming Lips - Zaireeka : LISTEN

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Feel The Flaming Lips' one-of-a-kind album like never before with 32 speakers enveloping you in the music.

Zaireeka is The Flaming Lips most unique album, and perhaps the most creative use of stereo technology in the 20th century. The music of Zaireeka is revealed when the 4 records or CDs of the piece are played simultaneously through four separate stereo systems (this takes 4 people pressing play or dropping the needle at the same time). The overlapping playback produces the complete work of the album. The piece is also a lo-fi nod to spatial music since different sounds will play out of the 8 different speakers needed to hear the whole piece. We upmixed the 4 stereo CDs (8 channels) of this album to play through our 32 speaker listening space, each channel positioned equidistant around the space.
