2013 was a big year for Flume. Fresh off the 2012 release of his self-titled debut album ‘Flume’, a number of creative agencies came together to produce the biggest live show the artist had ever done. Colourblind joined the Flume team to lead the lighting design, programming and operation, as well as production manage a massive 170 shows over three and a half years for two studio album tours.

Flume has often been praised for pioneering the ‘future bass’ genre that has given way to other successful genres in the dance music scene. To capitalise on his particular sound, the ‘Infinity Prism’ show utilized technology that made the video, set piece, and lighting elements of the show hyper responsive to the artist’s live performance. This show is what brought Flume’s performance from a backpack full of cables and laptops to a well-oiled, touring machine that showcased his debut album to the world.

After the global success of his album ‘Flume’, in 2016 his sophomore album ‘Skin’ was released to international acclaim, bringing in a number of ARIAs as well as a Grammy for Best Dance Album. Colourblind lead the production management to roll out the impressive new stage design for another global tour. With notable headline performances at Coachella and Splendour in the Grass, the ‘Skin’ World Tour went down as one of the biggest endeavours in Colourblind’s history.
