The Atlantic plays The Flaming Lips’ smartphone symphony

Alexis Madrigal provides some context:

The Flaming Lips are known for odd musical experiments. They once released a four-CD album that required four separate players to experience. Then there were the boombox experiments that accompanied it.

Now, just in time for Valentine’s Day, they’ve released a 12-part smartphone symphony on YouTube called “Two Blobs Fucking.” When I watched the instructional video, it felt like a challenge I had to try. And I knew that Harriett Beecher Stowe and the other founding editors would be proud if we could harness The Atlantic's forces for this important performance.
