Mileece's Soundscapes

by Alisa Furoyama | September 20, 2013

One of the most anticipated electronic music festivals of the year, Decibel Festival, is about to kick off at the Chihuly Garden and Glasshouse with Mileece.  Born in London, Mileece was surrounded with sound and video from an early age as her family pioneered a recording studio.  She has an extremely diverse background from studies in sound engineering, sonic art, environmental science, and documentary film making.

In 2002, she released Formations, an album based on natural phenomenons such as the pattern that raindrops fall in, the way light moves and the shape of a snowflake.  She then wrote programs to decipher this information and translate the patterns into sound. The result is an intriguing, calming and complex collection of beautiful melodies. 

Shortly after this Mileece designed and installed the first prototype of her plant biofeedback system.  This system enabled the plant's bio-emissions to be translated into a lush and complex harmony, a soundscape coming from the plants.  We have no idea what this is going to feel like in person but we are so excited that Decibel has brought her to Seattle and that we can be apart of what she's creating.
