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 edition of the Free Soundtrack Music System was initially developed and deployed by C.P.Bryan in 2008: The system design objective was to create an online library of music for video producers which would allow them to easily browse, preview (audition) and download compositions to use in their soundtracks on a royalty free basis. 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 August 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 Page for August 2017:
"Holiday In Siberia" is a good illustration of the electronic / experimental mashup of genres typical of Lowther & Bryan compositions. In this case the frosty atmospheres are a backdrop for an operatic vocal, creating a desolate cinematic mood in keeping with the track's name...
This next example recording, entitled "Rattlesnake Desert Dub", illustrates the kind of genre-blending mixology typical of Lowther & Bryan soundtrack compositions:
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.
NEW! The latest development project from C.P.Bryan is focussed on the political sphere, and proposes a new Social Networking system to help constituents make their preferences known to elected representatives:
