... so how do you photograph @girihband: a wordless supernova of music that implores you to feel first and see only if you must?
.

.
i don’t really know but these three images are what I captured.....
.
…. these three images take inspiration from the magnetic pull of gravity;,. a brilliant burning filament shooting photons into nothingness;,. the feeling of being alone, together;,. and the insane, tonal journey from a musician’s brain, through a electromagnetic field-disrupting cable, through a zillion little wires and capacitors and tubes, to send atmospheric pressure back through the void and into my now buzzing chest.
.
.
I hope you dig these and will go check out Girih’s first single Eigengrau. (Link in their profile).

@girihband is loud and heavy. it’s post rock, but…. you know Explosions in the Sky? …. .
.
.
… they don’t sound like them.
.
.
.
… you know sigur ros?….. .
.
.
… girih doesn’t sound like that either.
.
.
.
girih sounds like a metallic supernova fighting a blackhole.
.
.
.
PS - their name is often written in braille, and they don’t have lyrics in their songs. dig?

@girihband is an instrumental post rock band from new hampshire. i made these pictures during a show in their home town.
.
post rock shows aren’t really like other shows. i don’t dance, but I do move. mostly i move in my mind.
.
during this show I kept my hand on my camera and sometimes watched directly through the lens. people at post rock shows don’t look at the band though, not often. there’s too much sound, and it’s better to submerse yourself in that… sometimes you just close your eyes or stair into the ether. .
so how do you take girih’s picture then…?
