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.

INSTALLATION—SOUND DESIGN

HEARING COLOR, SEEING SOUND



Excerpts From “Hearing Color, Seeing Sound”


An immersive and interactive synesthetic installation. The installation consists of 4-monochromatic films and distinct soundtracks extracted from the color of each film. There is also an interactive element that uses the pitch frequency of the viewer's voice to project it's color. The aim of the installation is to push people to engage with their surroundings, on a deeper more interconnected level, bringing insight and clarity to how the senses shape their world.



Title: Hearing Color, Seeing Sound
Media: 2-Channel Video, 4 Channel Audio, Interactivity

Artists: Brian Griffith, Mayar Hamdan, Autumn Rogers

On View: WaveCave, CalArts; January 2020
This is a collaboration with artists Mayar Hamdan and Autumn Rogers that we created during our residencies at CalArts. 

Using combinations of analog and digital — field recordings and digital oscillators; computer generated objects and film photography— we wanted to emphasize that differences on the micro level actually blend harmoniously on the macro level.
