Ephemeral mists began its musical journey during the beginning of 2009, when composer, Brett Branning from Tampa (Florida/USA) began fusing his cutting edge ambient electronics with the ancient musical traditions and instruments of the middle east and far east. The result is a stunningly beautiful ambient world of sound that goes well beyond the cliches of the genre and reaches for daunting new artistic and creative heights. The debut album, “Moon ritual”, is currently avaiable for purchase.
Brett Branning is an award winning and world renowned multimedia artist, photographer, and music composer. Although, the projects with which the artist is affiliated ranges in styles quite dramatically, they all have a tangential relationship with Brett’s impassioned interest in sound design, found sound, field recordings, and musique concrete.
Brett has been involved with music since early childhood, and began his musical odyssey on the piano. Although, that has remained his main instrument throughout the years, he is also very fluent on a wide range of world music instruments, including (but not limited to) the Ney, Shakuhachi, Guanzi, Whistle, Blul, and Duduk. The passion he holds for these ancient wind instruments plays an integral role in the sound world that Ephemeral Mists creates.
The synthetic dream foundation
The synthetic dream foundation formed in 2005 by Brett Branning (Abandoned Toys and Ephemeral Mists). Though in that short time frame has gardened a pallete of sound which is comparable to the glittering of phosphorescent life on the bottom of a cold, blackened sea. From harsh, brooding, mechanical beats to dreamy, neo-classical mirages, and dark ambient masterworks which shift through and absorb cold, alien landscapes. TSDF is not limited by genre, but instead compelled by the infinite possibilities that electronic advancements bestow upon the musical and artistic forms.
