music for robots


Hey there people. First a big thanks to the Flaming lips for being who you are and making all that awesome music. I can only imagine that life would be very different if you guys hadn't existed. I think I need to ask Wayne for some kind of legal permission to play some music by The Flaming Lips as the accompaniment to a little stop- frame animation I made. The animation shows the step by step construction of one of the robot sculptures I've made. i have an exhibition coming up and want to exhibit the animation but don't want to piss anyone off or get sued or something. You think i might be able to get the official nod to play a minute 30 of " It overtakes me...." ??????? I can send you the movie if you need or want see it. It's pretty cute. The show in June so I have some urgency.

well that wasn't the kind of underwhelming response I'd hoped for but i guess it's unrealistic to expect the band members to respond to every request that gets thrown their way. I guess I'll have to find a different backing track.

They don't really monitor this site closely at all. Your best bet might be tracking down the Warner Bros. rep.

Both Steven and Wayne tend to be very active on instagram/ twitter but Randall's probably right about the Warner Bros connection

Thanks for those responses. I've no time for talking to WB reps though. I'll just make some changes and let it roll.
