about

Upon the reconsideration of Milieu's album Brother, which was recorded almost ten years ago, it occurred to me that I no longer held sacred anything about the music. It was created at a time and from a vantage point that no longer exists. So, with the recent reissue of Brother, which would not have even happened if it were not for numerous fan requests, I felt the need to do something personal that would re-validate the project for me. Like diving to a land mass that was once above sea level, revisiting Brother was a very raw and blindly explored process. I located all of the original master tapes from the archives and set upon them as if they were eroded artifacts that I would mutate in the same fashion as the Verdant Acre sessions. Lots of noisy analog delays and reverbs were employed, as well as two generations of cassette tape and one generation of reel to reel tape, and a single DR550 drum machine was included to anchor the murky excursion to some type of rhythmic floor. The result is essentially a new album, with each half of the Brother source material reduced/expanded to a nearly forty-minute experience. A forest wall, petrified and sunken to the bottom of a black sea, found by accident and lit up only sections at a time by a silent submersible. A blurry white shape in the darkness.
