In 2013, GREYMAR created the cover art and video of Selim Lemouchi’s single “Next Stop Universe B,” under the moniker IDIE. In 2019, GREYMAR created the cover art of Paul Masvidal’s “Mythical Human Vessel” trilogy, and the videos “The Spaces,” “Parasite,” “Nebula,” and “Hand to Mouth."[9] The Masvidal + GREYMAR collaboration also involved proposals for immersive acoustic performances that engage technology.[10]
