Mileece spent her early years growing up in her parents’ pioneering recording studio, Free Range, in Covent Garden , London, and Rockflicks, one of the first music video/film production companies where she was surrounded by 70’s luminaries such as Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Kate Bush and the Sex Pistols.
Her parents’ divorce led her to a peripatetic life living from crystal gardens in LA to rural French farms , city high rises in Manhattan, paper mache castles in SanFrancisco and the snowy plateaux of Montreal, and where she lives now.
Mileece has a degree Sonic Art where she specialised in generative computer programming languages.
Her first album “Formations” is comprised of a series of compositions, wholly or partly derived from programs she wrote in Super Collider. (an object-oriented music programming language)
The compositions themselves were inspired by formations in nature; the rotating progression of sparse then condensed spouts of growth in plants, the changing hues and intensities of light, the sudden changing gusts to wisps of the wind, the unfathomably intricate structures of snow flakes, the random patterns of raindrops as they fall to ground.
Mileece believes that the computer can be transformed from an inanimate object to something capable of participating in the creation of music in a way which is interactive with the composer as well as the audience.
In her programs, the computer assumes the role of performer within a spectrum from the spontaneous to the directed (even at times co-composer), navigating through parameterized chance operations to generate it’s uncannily human sounding formations and sundry levels of listening
