Anthony Ciannamea is a creative director and visual designer working at the intersection of art and technology. After having spent years working with ad agencies, tech companies, and production studios as both a left and right-brained creative - Anthony now focuses on leading projects as a creative bridge between narrative experiences in art and computer science.
Over the years he has directed and produced work for a diverse set of musicians and labels like Son Lux, Alpha Pup, Ghostly International, Deru, Shigeto, Deafheaven, Prefuse 73, Moby, as well as a visual residency at Low End Theory (SF).
In 2015, with Deru, he led a team of artists and engineers to build the first album released on a series of wooden handheld LED video projectors: a modern-day time capsule. Entitled “1979”, the project explored themes of nostalgia and featured nine audiovisual collaborations between the two artists. This album-as-sculpture, as well as a mythological backstory and fan contributions to the project is on exhibition at www.1979.la.
Now based in California, Anthony works as an art director with modern chamber ensemble The Echo Society, and is launching a VR album series and physical music artifacts with 79Ancestors, a newly-formed interdisciplinary record label with partner Ben Wynn and acclaimed Adobe experience designer Yaniv De Ridder.
