Flume's Harley Streten started making music with software he got from a cereal box

Flume is the musical project of Harley Streten from Sydney, Australia. At 21, Streten has come a long way from where he started, making electronic music using a bit of production software he got from a box of cereal at age thirteen. His sparse but evocative soundscapes defy easy categorization. With distinctive stylistic flourishes that he uses as a detail rather than a main sonic theme, Streten's music has an uncommon subtlety, and his dark melodic compositions suggest a visual aesthetic born out in his live show.
