Fluxion' is a pseudonym of Konstantinos Soublis (born 1973), a musician and producer of electronic music from Greece.

Background[edit]

K. Soublis music includes different genres of electronic music, ambient, dub, experimental, techno, with sound design. His music has a characteristic of slowly evolving parts and contemplating elements which form lengthy musical pieces. His sounds are heavily processed to a point where the origin of a sound has little to do with the end result. As Fluxion, he released Ep's, Lp's, and full length albums, for labels such as, Chain Reaction (a subsidiary of Basic Channel), Resopal Schallware, Echocord. He created Vibrant Music in 1999, releasing his own music, but also from other artists.

Early life[edit]

Born in Athens Greece, he studied music technology in the U.K. between 1993–96, where he came in touch with the processing of sounds and the music of John Cage, Philip Glass as well as futurism and music concrete. His first official recordings under the Fluxion moniker were a handful of wonderful downtempo experimental techno releases on the Chain Reaction label. Epic in scope, much of Fluxion's best Chain Reaction work was compiled on two Vibrant Forms albums (issued in 1999 and 2000, respectively).[1] He later released a full-length in 2001 titled Spaces, a conceptual album based on the perception of acoustics of different environments and how they can be reproduced artificially. He later released a few Ep's on his own imprint Vibrant Music. He went silent for a few years but resurfaced with a somewhat bolder approach on 2009-2010 releases through Resopal (Constant Limber) and Echocord (Perfused). His collaboration with Echocord continued with the Traces and Broadwalk Tales albums, while Type reissued the first Vibrant Forms collection. Fluxion collaborated with Subwax BCN in 2016; the label reissued Vibrant Forms II and released the newly recorded Vibrant Forms III.[2] His earlier work is considered classic in the electronic music scene.
