Finally, a Stunning Music App That Never Plays The Same Thing Twice

Finally, a Stunning Music App That Never Plays The Same Thing Twice

One website constantly turning out advanced, eye-opening products is Kickstarter. Many of the best products are consistently new programs and tech innovations, including one new music app called Flux. This app lets users listen to an endless stream of original compositions, put together in random order by your phone. A completely new approach to music, this revolutionary music app may have a big effect on what we listen to, and how we listen to it, in the future.

    Benefits:

    Infinite Combinations

    Flux is a new concept and a new approach to music entirely. The music app takes music loops with similar characteristics and randomly matches them with sound effects, beats, and instruments that could go well together. By never playing the same loops and effects together twice, this unique music app can potentially craft infinite combinations of sound effects and music. This feature could ultimately make Flux a massively appealing music app.

    Original Lengths

    Since Flux uses many different types of sounds and music loops, it has the potential to obliterate our perceptions of how long a song should be. Endless varying blends could potentially play in all sorts of lengths, both long and short. This is an experimental step, at a time when most songs are 3 to 5 minutes long. This could mean Flux might eventually have a massive impact on the music industry.

      Infinite Graphic Options

      Flux pairs constantly original compositions, with a highly intelligent graphic system, which also never plays the same visuals twice. This means, to go along with new music, there’s also the potential for infinite graphic presentations.

      Save Feature

      While the app plays original configurations of graphics and music every second you listen, it also includes a favorite feature, allowing you to save songs. By creating a playlist, users can revisit songs the app created that piqued their interest. This means users can both experience original music, and replay songs they like.

        Social Media Integration

        This innovative music app also includes several social media integration features. This app makes it easy to share your favorite original music, and helps you connect to other Flux users. In the future, this might even mean you could listen to other user’s favorite songs.

          Drawbacks:

          Only One Artist

          While the features of the app have the potential to revolutionize the way we think about music, unfortunately so far the app only includes music from one artist. The app’s creator, legendary guitarist Adrian Belew, is so far the only recording artist involved. While Adrian’s accomplishments are far reaching, it would be exciting to see other recording artists contribute. The Kickstarter page alludes to Adrian recording all sorts of instruments and sounds, but the sounds offered by the app could still be limited. There’s no telling where the app might go once it is released, but it would be nice to eventually see compositions from all different genres, cultures, and talents.

          Limited Lyrics

          Another feature Flux is lacking is a wide variety of lyrics to go with the music. This music app’s Kickstarter page hints that new features are likely in the future, but for now Flux only plays a handful of lyrics along with the music. This is something that might lead the app to be more of a cult classic.

            All in all, this music app shows off some potentially revolutionary features. The ability to always have a new song at your fingertips is exciting, and puts consumers truly in control of their music experience. On the other hand, the limited scope of artists and lyrics, may stop some consumers from taking the plunge. Hopefully, this music app grows the base of sounds that the app uses to create compositions, so a wider demographic of listeners will adopt such a ground breaking approach to music. The app itself is an incredible source for new media and inspiration, and is likely to quickly be a favourite for artists and others looking for inspiration. The ability to constantly expose yourself to completely fresh media is a powerful way to keep new ideas coming. Though the app’s price has not been released, the Kickstarter page suggests that this app is meant for everyone, likely hinting at a low price point. The app will be available in Spring 2015.

            Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

            Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

            Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

            Does technology have all the answers?

            This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

            Creating technological solutions transparently

            This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

            Technology as the connecting tool

            Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

            “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
