vinyl version with poster and download. as postmodernist space odyssey's go, flying lotus' 'cosmogramma' has confidently weaved itself into the lineage of sun ra and his astro infinity arkestra's strange strings, nicolas roeg's the man who fell to earth and afrika bambaata's planet rock...while 'cosmogramma' is a monolithic convergence of 20th and 21st century musical forms, high in concept and wide in musical collaboration, 'pattern and grid' world pulls the focus back to steven ellison and his machines. these machines are speaking (and possibly looking as well, judging by the ep's cover) from the go, as 'clay' introduces itself in a fog of synth and vocoder and gives way to one of the many surprises here, the schizophrenic ping-ponging electro of 'kill your co-workers'. drenched in alternating melodies, it's a synthetic counterpart to the grand string and harp arrangements of 'cosmogramma', making acclaimed illustrator theo ellsworth's subtly psychedelic cover image of vision-through-noise all the more intimate.
