New Zealander Antony Milton has been making records, exhibiting sound installations and performing live under various nom de plumes (A.M (exactly so, without the second dot after M), The Nether Dawn, Paintings of Windows, Mrtyu etc) since the early 1990s. He is also the curator of the PseudoArcana record label. A recurring theme in Milton's work is an investigation of 'place' and 'presence' and the ways in which these function within the representational realm of recorded sound. With releases on underground labels such as Jewelled Antler, Last Visible Dog and Celebrate Psi Phenomenon Milton's work is situated at some weird junction between electroacoustic composition, folk music, and the more psychedelic end of the 'noise' spectrum… Using predominantly analogue sources (tape loops, field recordings, amplified resonant objects, voice and guitar) Milton's performances have a high degree of intimacy and commonly range from the gestural and nuanced through to the visceral and ecstatic.
