Today the question is, "is Milieu overexposed ?" Is Brian Grainger, as Carl Martin (of Transient) so prodigally productive that everyone doesn't now give the same attention to this work. See, if we strictly refer to the 2006 Milieu production (and today is august 23rd) we are not very far from 10 releases (11 in 2005) … the reason is maybe in the french word "milieu" which means "middle" (of … the road ?)
Then, now the second question is why the people of EED may have choose an artist like Milieu ( and by far for a netaudio and maybe a 07 coming cd ) is Brian Grainger so newly and so highly representative of this label ?
And finally, what about with :: sun white sun, Brian Grainger lends himself to the game of the improvisation for the FREED Music serie (the impro side-project of EED), and the answer of the previous questions is somewhere in the result of this netaudio : blank. Opening with a half-encouraging "velvet morning" cumulating an interesting succession of atmospheric layers, the release is then sinking into enigmatic and trouble drone waters - It will not regrettably recover from it.
We can thank EED for this disagreeable experience, they have proved that Milieu is a seductive but a second hand artist dedicated to average electronica music tastes. Brian Grainger is certainly very emblematic for the netscene recognition, but he is also the tree which hides a forest of fabulous talented artists sometimes engaged in a music evolution approach. If you wish a demonstration, you are just invited to consult the back catalog of EED, for example …
