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.
Miles’ work is a constant celebration of originality, strangeness, and the beauty of unorthodox creative combinations. 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 Gatewaywill be released in 2019 by Death Waltz Originals.
Classical harp virtuosa Mary Doumany and cult thereminist extraordinaire Miles Brown (The Night Terrors, Heirs) present an exciting new experimental collaboration – The Narcoleptor. Listen as this fearless duo meld the soundworlds of their iconic instruments to conjur a stream-of-(un)consciousness orgy of swirling dream fragments and microtonal hypnotica.
