- Briz de MarBriz de Mar is the third in a series of multi-sensory comic book experiments, sold as a 12- page riso-printed booklet, with a soundtrack pressed to clear 7" vinyl. The project is the result of an investigation into the pacing of sequential art, which has an inherent musical and rhythmic nature. The artists wanted to create abstract comics with musical accompaniments in order to bridge the gap between the two mediums. The soundtrack takes cues from alien dancehall, classic waltzes and 90s drum
