IN FLUX is an East-meets-West music album that merges the two oceans together in an unprecedented way, featuring the musicians of Evanescence, Mega Man, Ninja Gaiden, Silent Hill, Panzer Dragoon, Sworcery, Spelunky, and more. The union of Japanese artists alongside their Western friends shine through the album, sidestepping the language gap and communicating entirely through the universal understanding of music.
IN FLUX is an album that celebrates the joyous and ever-changing nature of music, not constrained by genres or languages or styles—but celebrating the history and the culture that music is able to cultivate and nurture. The album's visual style was achieved through Zurich-based Fabian Oefner's stunning lenses that captured the fragile luminosity of soap bubbles — an imagery that goes in hand with the album's philosophy and approach.
A limited run of the album was available at Bit Summit MMXIV in Kyoto, selling more than a hundred signed copies by Mohammed Taher (director), Manami Matsumae (advisor), Keiji Yamagishi (composer) alongside their Western friends Eirik Suhrke (composer), Stemage (composer) and Chipzel (composer). You can buy the album on Bandcamp, digitally and physically, or you can use iTunes alternatively. We also designed a very-limited t-shirt, drawn beautifully by Simon Alander and worn on stage by Saori Kobayashi (of Panzer Dragoon) and Yumiko Takahashi (of Suikoden).
