IIVII (ivy) is the ambient-fiction project of visual artist, multi-instrumentalist and composer, Josh Graham: founding member of Red Sparowes, Battle of Mice, and A Storm of Light.
Live shows mix visuals, guitar, analogue and digital keyboards, cassette loops, and more.
IIVII focuses on sonically engulfing and moody soundscapes, layered with a science-fiction edge. This approach has allowed Josh to expand his sonic body of work and explore new electronic territory, focusing on the subtle orchestration and manipulation of dense sonic atmospheres, rather than the bombastic approach found in A Storm of Light.
Depicting an invading species of alien origin, the artwork was also completed by Graham, who currently serves as Soundgarden's art director. Working as a designer and director, he has also collaborated with a variety of bands including Mastodon, Neurosis, Jesu, Shrinebuilder, ISIS and The Dillinger Escape Plan.
