Food is one thing a person can’t live without; it’s a part of our daily lives and keeps us and our day going. There are various options for you to choose from and eat from in today’s world. In addition, many people like listening to music while enjoying their food. Let it be slow or fast, jazz, hip-hop, punk, etc.; with the possibilities being infinite, there are an unlimited number of options for you to choose from.
Now, it’s the basic urge for a human to try out new things and explore things to feed his curiosity. Let us take, for example, creating music with food. Yes, music with food is exactly what we are talking about, and the new Flux Gourmet trailer has actually shown us that it is possible.
The trailer starts off with our 3 main characters waking up and standing in front of a table full of food and electronic devices. Which are meant to capture the minute sounds created by them. Jan’s voice is heard in the background, giving us a hint of how she is the head of the institute overlooking everything which is happening.
The trailer then shows us various forms of sounds made from different things happening with food and when it meets fire or any other source, which can change its nature. The other half of the trailer then shows how the 3 main characters joined the institute and a bit about their past. However, the scenes after that confuse the viewers as we do not know what is happening and why.
At a point, we see the characters probably giving an audition to join the institute by eating imaginary chocolate, and then we see Billy choking on the imaginary chocolate. The scene then quickly shifts to Elle eating a piece of paper. The scenes after that get very confusing as we see them making music in the weirdest way possible and showcasing their talent in front of people.
In another scene, we see Billy and Elle slapping each other. Finally, the trailer ends with Jan telling the seated members (i.e., the main characters) to come and continue their investigacion into an array of inter-culinary disciplines.
You can watch the trailer
Asa Butterfield, who was born in Islington, London, England, plays the character of Billy Rubin. From the first look at the trailer, it is seen as if Billy is an introverted emo boy who puts his heart into the work he does.

About the Movie
Peter Strickland directed Flux Gourmet. The movie is about a Greek writer who hired to cover a culinary collective. Still, while gaining information over the days, the writer starts suffering from digestive problems and constipation. There are also disputes within the collective, and it’s also that the collective is prone to attacks from another previously rejected group of artists. With all of these aspects put together, the movie’s ending looks nightmarish.
