Summary

Flux by belew™ in a nutshell

FLUX by belew™ is an innovative new app that blends music and art into an interactive experience that never plays the same twice. Developed by MOBGEN for the acclaimed US musician Adrian Belew, FLUX is essentially a platform that links hundreds of musical tracks, audio snippets and art into a visual language that conveys his ideas and his avant-garde style into an intriguing app. Through a “roulette” of probability algorithms, FLUX by belew™ offers an infinite number of musical combinations to discover.

Music. Art. Technology

While music is constantly changing, the way we listen has remained stagnant. Individuals download an album or a track and passively listen to it. Adrian Belew set out to provide music enthusiasts with a new, ever-evolving way to enjoy music that never plays the same way twice. With FLUX by belew™ the listener is never quite sure what will come next. Some songs will be short, combined with long tracks that have been cut into snippets, shuffled around and assembled in a new order. Music, art and technology combine in the app platform to explore a new way of delivering content.

Listeners can favorite a track with the star icon in the top right corner so it has a greater chance of being played more frequently. FLUX saves the track to the favorites section of the app (accessed via the menu button) allowing the listener to play it at any time in the future. Capture the visuals and store them in the My FLUX section. Use them as wallpapers or share via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or email. Create a community around the unique experiences within the app.
