C.P.Bryan has been recording and releasing electronic soundscapes, dance grooves and audio collages since the late 1990's using a variety of artist names. He began his involvement with online music distribution systems as the artist formerly known as "Protoflake" on MP3.com. For those who are too young to remember what the internet was like back in the late 1990s, MP3.com was perhaps THE first implementation of a self-publishing music community which allowed music artists to:
upload tracks for sale or for sharing
create branded internet radio stations with tracks from any fellow composers/recording artists
publish CD albums which were manufactured, sold and distributed (all using the site's online interface)
Here is the album art from C.P.Bryan's CD album release on MP3.com, entitled "Morphing Nothing":
Some of the tracks featured on the "Morphing Nothing" album are now available for royalty free video production use from the F.S.M online music library system. You can find an introduction to Protoflake Music Here.

The first release of the music library was very limited - containing only music composed by C.P.Bryan. Before long, other recording artists began to contact the developer/producer with requests to post their own music... As of November 2017 the library contains over 1,200 recordings (with new compositions being added every week). There are now sixteen different contributing composers (or "recording artists") from diverse locations including Canada, Australia, Germany, Greece, The United States, Russia and Asia...
New Music Showcase for November 2017:
The newly released mix entitled "Return of Betamax" is a retro techno dance number partially inspired by an episode of the British comedy show "The Mighty Boosh" in which some mutant creature composed of spaghetti-like mounds of video tape wreaks his revenge on the viewers who have abandoned him:
This next example recording, composed by Steve Lowther and produced by C.P.Bryan, depicts a world spinning out of control with rapidly evolving technology which seems to be destined to leave humankind in the dust. This accelerating "wired" (or perhaps "wireless") mode of living has reached a tipping point where (as per the title of the track) "Life is a Blur":
In addition to the Free Soundtrack Music System, C.P.Bryan has developed other applications which have been released as shareware or are available for free download. One example: The Cut'n'Mix application is a postmodern word processor for creative writers. More information about the Cut'n'Mix application is AVAILABLE HERE.
