Recycled Plastics - Boredom Composed


Recommended Posts


New compilation of tracks from the variety of aliases from resident polymath Brian Grainger aka Milieu/Coppice Halifax/Bike/etc. 

Lush beats, merry melodies, spacey drones...what's not to love?



(also a great starting point into a VERY deep back catalogue for those who haven't dipped in yet.)

This is a great label. 

Thank you Stephen! And thank you Mr. Life for the free promo!

This record is one I've wanted to make for years, and only now do I have enough (publicly divulged) aliases to carry it out.

It sure is. Check out Edith Keeler if you haven’t yet.

Haven't yet, thank you for the recommendation!

Wow, ok two things - I didn't realize you were behind Recycled Plastics as a label. And I read the release description too quickly and didn't see that these are all your aliases!

You must never sleep! 

Placed my order. Is the title a reference to Boredoms Rebore by chance? (https://www.discogs.com/artist/32328-Boredoms)

Yes, and that isn't even all of the ones I use. This has to be some kind of mental condition...

Most of the time. Sometimes, I'm even in front of it!

I have other people to do that for me.

Unfortunately no, I've never heard of the thing you linked there. The long running BC## catalog at RP is a series called Bedroom Compost, indicating that the contents of the releases are a mixture of different variants/cultivars of bedroom-produced electronic music. So Boredom Composed is sort of a cheeky, self-deprecating satire of that, and maybe almost a homophone too?

      Hello there WATMM,
      I am pleased to announce the first of two very special compilations of Milieu trax, assembled exclusively for release at the excellent Touched Music label. The two-volume Sunbather's Pharmacopeia is designed to appeal to both longtime listeners, first-timers and the casual consumer in between, and this first volume focuses on material from the earlier phase of the Milieu sound - the slow tempos, detuned synthesizers and bittersweet melodies.

      As of right now, the release has only been announced via the Touched social media outlets, and there isn't anything on Bandcamp just yet. HOWEVER, a good amount of promo is being done, and some of it is the cool and interactive kind, so read on!
      To start, multiple videos have been made for some of the tracks on this collection, the first by Mr. Touched himself (and can only currently be viewed via the Touched Facebook page) and the second by Broken Machine Films (the in-house videographers at Illuminated Paths) which is soon to come. There may yet be more videos, but don't quote me because I'm not the one in charge of that department.
      Secondly, there will be a three-hour online event on the Touched Mixlr feed, on Friday July 26th, which consists of a DJ set from the talented Steve Brown (Combinations In Electronic Sound), a DJ set from myself (moonlighting as DJ Brian Damage) and then a screening of the Touched album. The link to the Touched Mixlr is here, and this will happen at 2PM Eastern Daylight time (7PM in the UK and 8PM in much of the rest of Europe). I will be hanging out in the chatroom at Mixlr to answer questions and shoot the breeze, likely with a couple shots of whiskey in my hand. If anyone here has attended the listening parties I did on Twitch for Sun Cast or Shallow Earth, this will be somewhat like that.
      And speaking of that last bit - depending on how the Mixlr show goes, and whether or not anyone there missed out, was late coming in, or still wants to listen to music and chat, I'll be willing to have an afterparty on my Twitch channel, where I might even break out the synths and drum machines and jam a bit, or play tracks, or whatever! Bedtime is relative in Milieu Land.
      Finally, I've answered some studio-related questions in an interview segment for Synthspotting (Twitter & Facebook) and given them a few badly lit photographs of what the studio looks like right now. I don't know when they will post their Milieu feature, but I will try to update this thread when it happens.
      So there you go - some cool Milieu-related things to look forward to soon. And definitely, if you can, check the DJ set out on Mixlr - it's not your usual DJ affair of just spinning records, but rather, more like an old hip-hop mixtape that takes loops from dozens of different tracks and uses them as building blocks for brand new grooves. I have done one previous DJ mix in this style and you can download that here. There also may or may not be a bootleg cassette containing both of the Brian Damage DJ sets coming out after the Touched release...
      More info posted here as it comes!

      The Wye Valley is among my favourite routes in the British Isles. Starting in Chepstow & calling at Tintern, Monmouth & Abergavenny, before finishing over the Black Mountains in Hay, the journey takes in rivers, mossy ruins, mountain valleys + diverse fauna and flora. Invoking the unhurried mystery & peace of mind these locations inspire, a harmonic-heavy soundscape designed for stress reduction, reflection & calm.
