Brandon Locher works across a wide variety of mediums including audio recordings, visual art, multimedia art and sound art and is a main contributor and co-founder of My Idea of Fun, a collective of musicians, visual artists, film makers and writers based in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

His series Mazes to the Motherlode consists of detailed illustrations that interlock, tangle, and unravel into different shapes and forms. His illustrations have a sense of chaotic calmness about them, as if the knotted lines and shapes are headed towards an unreachable destination.

In addition to his illustration series, Locher is releasing a vinyl EP under the name The Meets where he also created the album art in addition to the music. The album cover is reminiscent of a soundscape, hinting at the character of the music contained inside.
