Brian James Griffith is a musician and visual artist living in Los Angeles. His work blends analog with digital; subtle movements with bold features; and virtual with physical reality. Musically, Brian creates evolving atmospheres that often explore the sonic capabilities of the bass guitar extending it well beyond the lower register, as an effort towards singularity between the mind and instrument. His visual art compliments the meditative qualities of his music by creating synthesized video environments and hypnotic animations that encourage mindful investigation. The spontaneous nature of his process attempts to connect fully to the invisible fabric of reality.
Brian currently performs with Angela Wilson as Electric Sound Bath, using Electric Piccolo Bass and Electronics; they have performed at Union Station, UCLA, Otis College, Art Center College, Griffith Park, as well as other art/mindful spaces. Electric Sound Bath creates harmonious sounds as well as hypnotic visual art— in 2017/18 Brian and Angela contributed to the SQRWAVES Pavillion for The Wrong digital art biennalle and actively experiment with video & internet art.
In addition, Brian also plays bass in Nightgown, a hard-to-pin-down garage rock band, fronted by Laurel Noone. He also performs and releases solo music as Greyghost.
