Album Notes
Reviews for The Violet Flame:

★Very dark and beautiful, all of it -Legends Magazine

★Peter Miller’s music is never less than fascinating. He has established himself as one of Australia’s foremost electronic experimentalists… extraordinarily inventive, but never straying from accessibility -Rolling Stone

★The Violet Flame is stunning ... the harmonies are rich, the textures seductive and intelligence and invention characterise every track -Ambience

★I was most immediately taken by the music of Peter Miller—moving footsteps, scraps of dialogue, aqualung breathing and depth-finding blips around the stereo image in a kind of sonic Virtual Reality -The Sydney Morning Herald

★Miller is one of Australia’s leading exponents of electronic imagery. The Violet Flame is a recommended addition to your CD collection -Audio & Video Lifestyle

★Formidably talented, the country’s foremost atmospheric composer has created a work of immense depth and clarity ... -Juke

★Shrouded in a gothic context Miller takes pleasure in evoking the spirit of literary classics musically. From the Diary of Madeline Usher reconstitutes Poe in a subtle, but nightmarish blending of vocal samples and ticking/walking percussions blowing over a veil of electronic cellos, clocks and chilled whispers. Titanica evokes the deep realms of the sea on a clandestine maiden voyage, with stark, Budd-like piano figures ... the potent aspects of his work succeed vividly -i/e Magazine

★... the entire CD lends itself to drifting into a personal headspace that is half-familiar, half-alien, wholly wonderful -Undesirable Propagation Unit
