Milo’s teaching is informed by contemporary approaches to cybernetic theory and pedagogic / paragogic practices. This implies constant and productive movement between teaching, research and art making. Such questions arise as:
Milo has taught Sound Art for many years from a wide range of perspectives, including time at S.A.E London, (School of Audio Engineering), Rose Bruford College of Theatre and Performance (Course Leader: Performance Sound) and the University of Brighton (Senior Lecturer: Digital Music and Sound Arts).
His creative work is also multi-faceted – originally an electric anti-guitarist, he has produced short films, sound installations, radiophonic works (BBC, Resonance FM), electronic devices, theatre, puppetry performances, acoustic ecology works, multi-channel electro-acoustic music, contemporary dance collaborations and audio-visual performances. These works have been shown internationally in Europe, Africa, Asia and Central and North America.
Research interests include listening and histories of the senses, media archaeology, open-source / FLOSS, audio-visual composition, sound archives, sonic anthropology, archaeoacoustics, inclusive and participatory practice, entanglement and material culture, acoustic ecology, modularity, electronic cultures and the sonic world at large.
