Live Video: Floating Points

photo by Matthew B. Thompson (view set)

Leave it to a neuroscientist to create an out of body experience. UK’s Sam Shepherd blows minds post-doc with his experimental electronic project, Floating Points, combining jazz, space rock, prog, EDM, classical and other genres that can but shouldn’t be named into an out of this world experience. Even his performance at KEXP was physically and spiritually transformative, as Shepherd brought four band members and a dizzying display of visual arts to our studio to recreate songs from his 2015 LP, Elaenia, including the 3-part epic “Silhouettes”, plus the title track to his forthcoming EP, Kuiper, due July 22nd. Watch the entire session now.
