Freefonix, a music based animated adventure series set in the future, is a classic battle of good vs evil but with a twist – using music and sonic energy as the weapons. Sonic technology has been developed, graphics can operate without emitters, and the new cool (or 'wix') teenage trend is to be a freewaver.
Freewavers are all those who truly understand the popular music of the time, one which incorporates strains of pop, techno, rock and rap. It takes on something of an underground element (centring on The Bounce, a submarine dance/music club), due to ComaCo, the authoritarian corporation and evil organisation of the series which markets manufactured girlband music that Freewavers call 'plasticised prepsie'.
The main characters, BB, Freezbone and Mostart, are thrown together by the mysterious Sugar Che (Jamelia), they form a band called Freefonix in order to safeguard the most powerful force in the universe - the 13th Note - as well as save their world from a dark future that will be brought on through the teaming up of an evil force, which calls itself Vox, with the most powerful person in all of Los Bosmos, Mya De Zya (the head of ComaCo).
