Flaming Lips Releases YouTube Symphony for 12 iPhones



Oklahoma band The Flaming Lips’ new single is a YouTube symphony that requires 12 smartphones or computers running simultaneously to be heard in full.

The track, titled “Two Blobs Fucking”, is spread across a dozen YouTube clips. Each 220-second clip must be played synchronously for the full effect, much like the band’s 1997 album Zaireeka that was spread across four compact discs.

To aid fans, lead singer Wayne Coyne and guitarist Steve Drozd posted an ‘instructional video’ on how to properly appreciate the single (above).
