Brian James Griffith
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.

NETART—SOUND DESIGN

You Are The Chime



You Are The Chime, Of Liminal Spaces 

⌘ALTAR is a Net Art series that I worked on as part of The Current Sea, the creative studio that Sarah Zucker and I founded. The series combines animated GIF, photography, sound and net art to produce a truely unique experience.



Title: You Are The Chime
Media: Internet, Animated GIF, 2-Channel Audio
Website: www.youarethechime.com

Artists: Brian Griffith, Sarah Zucker; The Current Sea; Angela Wilson
For You Are the Chime, I collaborated with Ang Wilson on creating sounds that were rhythmic, ethereal and acoustic. We wanted to keep the sounds as organic as possible so that use of percussion, ukulele, flute, singing bowls, bass and voice gave us the sounds we were looking for. Light synth was used sparingly, which tied back into the Net Art imagery.

The musical compositions are designed for and inspired by Internet. Each track is short and inteded to loop continuiously in conjuntion with a particular image. In the case of You Are the Chime, the still images funtion as Play Buttons which trigger the loops, while simultaniously animating the previously-static picture.
