The Flutter app allows users to express themselves through a self-designed soundtrack.

The human emotional spectrum is very nuanced and complex. We are often unable to articulate our own feelings, so we seek a cathartic release through different artistic mediums, whether it being movies, music or art. The Flutter app is designed as a music generator that can be "easily manipulated" to better reflect the user's current emotional state.

The score of a movie is designed to give viewers a sense of the emotional undercurrent of a scene; however, the Flutter app works in the opposite way, giving the user all the control. Creator Alex Rother explains, "We’re designing with the belief that in tough moments you have an idea about how you feel, but can’t pin it down or describe it in the right way. So by finding that intuitive sound or music, you have room for expressing yourself."
