Messing up my one feature a day plan since I wanted it finished the day before the gig, Waves Below will be joining the line up of Sunday’s New Artists Showcase gig, so today there’s a double dose of spotlights.
Neil Milton is a man with his fingers in a lot of pies. Along with Heidi Kuisma he is one half of We Sink Ships. We Sink Ships is a photographic and musical project between Heidi and Neil. I couldn’t possibly describe their work and do it justice, instead I urge you to check it out for yourselves. Their latest project, Masquerade, can be found here.
Additionally Neil takes his musical side further as beneath us, the waves, making ambient soundscapes. Originally formed to provide music for We Sink Ships, the music started to gain as much attention as the photography did and was spun off into beneath us, the waves.
Waves Below is a spin off from beneath us, the waves set up to differentiate Neil’s DJing and remixing work, with a more electro basis, from his own musical projects.
In addition to all that Neil was formerly a member of the band Troika, ran the too many fireworks record label, releasing singles by Troika, Findo Gask, Errors and more, and for two years ran the club night fire: works at Barfly.
