Alex Rothera is is a designer, artist, and inventor. One of his recent projects is designing​ a music-making app for grieving teenagers. It's called Flutter, and the basic idea is to help teens express their grief non-verbally, at a time when it is difficult to articulate the complex emotions they may be feeling.
