We welcome to Etched Traumas 'Room Of Roots' solo project of British artist Milo T-M. The pieces on "Small Noises" were created over 3 years, and are really a collection of sonic experiments. The mixture of looped audio and spontaneous recording remains a key feature throughout. Most of the tracks are created to convey a particular emotion or a physical space, such as in "Rooms". Making this music has enabled me to grasp the process of recording and mixing, whilst resisting the urge to use computers for the creation of effects or sounds.
Milo was born in London in 1997 and started showing an interest in music at the age of 11, and by 17 it is now his passion. He is influenced heavily by electronic and experimental music, but also includes elements of ambient and classical styles. His painting and writing act as parallel practices, and convey the same emotion to the reader or viewer as the music does to its listener. Much of the music he makes explores the thin line between minimalism and complexity, whilst retaining a sense of coherence. The fact that none of the sounds or effects are created with a computer is very important to Milo, as he believes that the ability to make anything you want immediately actually hinders creativity. The sole use of acoustic, analogue or circuit bent instruments allows his recording process to be totally spontaneous. He hopes you enjoy his music.
