Mileece is an English sound artist and environmental designer, making music with plants.
Hailed by the BBC as "beautiful, real musical science", Formations, her debut album of computer generated compositions inspired by cycles and formations in nature, led her on international tours with the Icelandic pop group Múm and to be the first resident artist at BOX Innovation Centre at the London School of Economics.
There, she created her first interactive ‘Aesthetic Sonification’ installation with gestural computer music instruments and initiated the design and development of a technology platform enabling Human/Plant communication through sound.
Presented as the installation series ‘Soniferous Eden’, a star-studded ecosphere where groves of plants generate a lush and complex harmonic soundscape in response to the touch and presence of its barefooted participants, this interspecies interaction platform has since toured an array of prestigious museums and festivals in Europe including the Migros Museum in Zurich, the Whitechapel Gallery, the Hayward Gallery, the Aldeburgh Festival, the Thames Festival and Key Gardens in London, in the US at the MoMA, NYC, MOCA’s Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles and most recently in Bhutan, Central Asia and at Sonos Studio’s, LA.
Initially developed for her touring solo sonic performance work with the Centre Dramatique National, France, and featured on Arté TV, Mileece’s interactive works include a series of found botanical remnants turned wearable sensor-based instruments, generating live gestural music from coded synthesizers.
Mileece is the founder of Children of Wild, an organization of cutting edge technology partners and conservation groups actively engaged in developing experiences and systems to bring people in closer connection to nature.
She also on the Board of Directors of Cygnus Atratus Group for fuel cell innovation, helping to promote renewable energy based arts and culture and advancing fuel cell manufacturing to promote waste to energy markets.
