[LISTEN] The Gateway by Miles Brown

Australian thereminist and composer Miles Brown returns to Death Waltz Originals for his second solo LP of incredible theremin driven gothic sci-fi techno. 

Released in 2020 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the theremin, THE GATEWAY features the instrument as lead voice in the extraordinary realm of high-energy post-Italo electronics. 

For this newest collection of original works, Brown transports the theremin 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 synthesizers via control voltage technology. 

This groundbreaking combination presents a fresh voice and thrilling new context for the world’s oldest electronic instrument.
