A.k.a. Eavesdrop Cosmic Figure

Brannon Hungness is a musician, composer, filmmaker, author, and artist currently residing in Western New York. He started his experimental rock project, Eavesdrop Cosmic, in 2016. Hungness grew up in rural North Dakota, where he started creating music and art at a very young age. He took guitar lessons from a piano teacher in a nearby town. While he learned to read music, he did not learn proper technique. Instead, he found his own ways of playing the instrument. Soon, he taught himself to play other instruments as well. By using multiple cassette decks and eventually a 4 track recorder, he began to work with layered arrangements and experimental recording techniques. He put together dozens of self-packaged cassette releases that he would mail to friends he met at summer music camp. Life on the prairie was an experience of isolation, however, it did fuel the young Hungness’s creativity and independent spirit. In 1994, Hungness entered the downtown New York City scene, playing with Glenn Branca, Elliott Sharp, (former Swans drummer) Virgil Moorefield, and many others. His official debut solo album was released by the Swedish label, Multimood Records in 1995. He has since released and appeared on over two dozen albums on various labels throughout the world. He has also toured extensively throughout the United States, Europe, and Canada, performing on stages such as Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, Theatre de la Ville in Paris, and Carnegie Hall in New York City. Tony Levin, Jerry Marotta, Joe Locke, and Rupert Greenall (The Fixx) are among the many distinguished musical artists he has recorded with. In November of 2017, Brannon Hungness founded Eavesdrop Cosmic Productions to release the bulk of his creative work. Eavesdrop Cosmic Productions consists of the production company, the record label Zenith to an Ear Records, and publishing company Puzzle Press.
