Adrian Belew details Flux release
“It’s a concept that I feel truly fits the times we live in.
Technology has changed our lives so dramatically. Most of us walk around with a small device in our pockets which can do things that only twenty years ago would have seemed miraculous. We are connected to the world, and as a result must deal with a daily flood of information. So, how has this changed us? Our brains are now trained to process information in quick, random bursts–from Facebook and Twitter feeds, text messages, Youtube clips, etc. Our ability to multitask is greater, but our attention spans are shorter. But modern music does not reflect these changes. Besides a shift in how we get music (streaming and downloading), most music has largely remained unaltered, still made in the same format used for over 60 years–the 3 to 5 minute song. Nothing wrong with that, but how about an alternative?”
“FLUX is an innovative new app by Adrian Belew that blends music and art into an interactive experience that NEVER plays the same twice.”
