Lotusflow3r.com was officially launched on March 24, at 7:07 p.m. PST, to replace 3121.com and to promote the triple release Lotusflow3r/MPLSound/Elixer in March 2009. Its access was limited to subscribers for a $77.00 admission fee. The website environment was that of a galaxy, featuring several "planets".

The website came as a main page referred as "the bomb", forecasting an environment of rocks, on which a television, newspapers, a ticket stub and a stereo were set. Newcomers had to search for clues of the passwords to be entered in the ticket stub before they could subscribe to the site. Returning customers had to click on the same stub to twirl it into login mode and get access to the site's content. Once access was granted, the site loaded a heavy flash file that took the visitor to an overall view of the galaxy before a focus was made on the center item: Lotusflow3r.

Content

The following content was released through the website.

Lotusflow3r

Lotusflow3r came in the shape of a futuristic scene featuring a smoke surrounded sphere crowned by lotus flower petals. The sphere was topped by flame effects evolving around a needle, or ray of light that loosened itself in the purple skies. It floated on a river/lake that meandered into a fall. On the left side were 2 pyramids, on the right 2 large rocks. In the far distance skyscrapers, backed by spaceships taking off were seen.</div>

  • Music

The initial section opened by a click on the skyscrapers. It featured 3 new sections:
- Listen: played the Lotusflow3r album, and enabled to download either a wav or a MP3 version of it.
- Look: featured 4 different artwork pictures.
- Lyrics: provided credits and lyrics for the album.

  • Video

The section opened by a click on the pyramids. It featured Crimson And Clover video.

  • Main Sphere

This section contained most of the videos broadcast on the site. Access to its content was gained clicking on Prince's face. A sphere with the ability to spin in all directions appeared. Thumbnail images of content were displayed in lines all around the globe. When a thumbnail image was clicked, a 16:9 screen appeared and played the selected video. The main sphere section forecast un-aired live footage, home videos, selected single videos and pictures.

MPLSound

MPLSound was located on the right of Lotusflow3r. It pictured a river flowing between two rocks on which 3 CD disc stood surrounded by clouds and a big flower (on the left). Floating in the air were two jellyfish, a pink one on the right and a blue one on the upper left next to a goldfish. 7 doves as well as a swan with a 1/4" TRS mono jack plug instead of a head completed the scene.
Access to the planet content was gained by clicking on the swan, that would fly to the next rock and plugged into a socket. Then both CDs made way for a sonic blue Fender Stratocaster guitar that played when the mouse was moved over its fretboard. It was backed by skyscrapers (one having the form of a synthesizer) in between which a zeppelin cruised, while the purple skies featured flashes of lightening. On the right rock, an 8-track mixing board was placed, while another synthesizer resided in the river.

  • Music

The section opened by a click on the guitar. It featured 3 sections:
- Listen: played the MPLSound album, and enabled to download either a wav or a MP3 version of it.
- Look: featured 5 different artwork pictures.
- Lyrics: provided credits and lyrics for the album.

  • Video

Elixer

Elixer was located on the left of Lotusflow3r. It pictured grass land on which Bria Valente was seen en profile, eyes closed and kneeling at the extreme right. The center of the planet featured a blue sphere between two rocks, in front of which were two speakers. On the left rock was a start button with the name Bria on top of it. In the background several skyscrapers were seen. In the purple skies, a stylized crescent moon held by a tiny cable.
Access to the planet content was gained by clicking on the start button which opened the listening section.
