Milieu - Beyond the Sea Lies the Stars CD (Infraction Records)
Mining a provenance of sounds from a distant & disbanded orchestra Milieu
reassembles then quietly broadcasts the collected notes into a wide expanse. It
is his first full ambient offering to be heard from a library of many hours of
sound experimentation in drone, ambient and lush found sound litanies.
Beyond the Sea is shrouded in distant fog…there are lights that seem to appear
briefly and then are calmly eclipsed. There is a fascination in this nebulous
balance of sonorous melodies from decades ago, almost hopeful, yet an
undercurrent of a somber theme that is draped over the entire composition…
This is Milieu’s first proper release – following two limited edition
releases for the Belgian label U-Cover. Influences include The Caretaker’s ‘Haunted
Ballroom’ and from William Basinski’s ‘Disintegration Loops’ series.

“solitary glimmering synth tones ever-looping in a vast wind tunnel, finding
communion with kindred synth-spirits, spiralling around each other in elegiac
meditation on loss, absence, memory. And gorgeous in its unadornment. “Vibrant
Shores, Horizons” is suggestive of the celebratory pealing of churchbells and
atavistic horn/pipe drones whilst being completely sonically other.” – e|i
”The rather profoundly titled 'Beyond The Sea Lies The Stars' from Milieu.
This sounds well cinematic and is absolute chilled, floaty, spacey ambient
bliss. This will make you feel like your floating in embryonic fluid and is
absolutley gorgeous. This is produced by Brian Grainger and is on Infraction Records.
This is my release of the week and if you don't buy it then you must be a bit
chicken oriental. Stunning.” Norman records
