BIO

­Miles Brown is an Australian thereminist, composer and experimental artist. Working with the ethereal interface of this gesturally-controlled instrument, he conjures unique emotional landscapes that query the relationships between space, sound, electronics and the body. Through composition, performance and cross-disciplinary collaboration, he develops new contexts for theremin that both expand upon and subvert its traditional uses. Current works investigate the theremin in the realms of dance music, art sound, soundtrack, site-specific installation and analogue electronics.

Miles Brown’s new album The Gateway is out now on Death Waltz Originals.

The Gateway LP / Digital Out Now

Australian thereminist and composer Miles Brown celebrates the 100th anniversary of the theremin with his 2nd full-length album THE GATEWAY – out now on  Death Waltz Originals.

Released in 2020 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the instrument,THE GATEWAY features theremin in the extraordinary realm of high-energy post-Italo electronics. For this newest collection of original works, Brown transports the instrument to the heart of the dance floor – reimagining its mysterious interface as an electro-magical conduit for the opening of forbidden portals and the summoning of subversive spirits.

THE GATEWAY also features a contemporary expansion of the classic theremin sound. Brown plays the Moog Etherwave Pro theremin in two ways – employing both its familiar heterodyne voicing and possessing a range of analogue synthesisers via control voltage technology. This groundbreaking combination presents a fresh voice and thrilling new context for the world’s oldest electronic instrument.
