Brian Trifon is the front man for Trifonic, a San Francisco based electronic act that seamlessly fuses experimental production wizardry with beautiful melodies and traditional song structures to craft music that is simultaneously unexpected and accessible. Brian received a Bachelor’s of Music in Studio Guitar from the University of Southern California. It was during this time that he began to explore electronic music and production. Upon graduating in 2004, Brian went to work as a guitarist
and programmer for famed electronic artist BT. Brian toured nationally with BT and contributed additional music, programming and guitars to several films, TV shows and to BT’s critically acclaimed 2006 album “This Binary Universe”
Brian joined forces with his older brother Laurence to create the music project Trifonic. Trifonic’s first track, a breaks mash-up called “Bored on Your Backside”, was the top vote getter in WIRED Magazine’s 2005 Freestyle remix contest. After licensing music for CSI, Trifonic dropped its first album Emergence in 2008 to critical acclaim amongst the masses. On Emergence, Trifonic combines elements of downtempo, dub, IDM, post-rock and ambient music to create a deep, lush musical experience distinctly their own. Emergence masterfully blends manipulated ambient sounds, synths, live guitars, strings and other instruments to create a rich, layered mixture of organic and hi-tech elements.
When performing live Trifonic uses a MacBook Pro running Ableton Live along with live bass or guitar. Trifonic has played with several large acts including Beats Antique, Mochipet and Deru and collaborated with numerous producers such as Hybrid, Hecq and Adam Freeland. Brian Trifon also serves a teacher and composer at the prestigious Pyramind Studios in San Francisco. Expect many good things from Trifonic in the near future including a new EP and numerous shows.
