Australian theremin player 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 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.
