About

Neil Milton is a Scottish composer and musician living in Warsaw in Poland. He is also the owner of Too Many Fireworks records. His music has been described as glacial snowdrifts of ambient soundscapes, electronic experiments and haunting, elegant modern-classical compositions.

He began writing and recording music in 1999 when he and three friends formed the post punk / post rock band, Troika. Before Troika split in 2005, he had formed his own record label, too many fireworks records through which he has released records by Flying Matchstick Men, Laeto, Errors and Titus Gein among others. In 2004, too many fireworks gave birth to its Glasgow club-night, Fire: Works and Neil took up DJing, a style which was later affectionately described as electrodiscowonkpop.

In 2009, after a break of several years, Neil began writing music for the now defunct ambient/soundscape project, beneath us, the waves before starting to compose and record modern-classical music and experimental, ambient soundscapes under his own name. Recently, he has begun remixing and DJing under the name "Allons-y!".

In October 2010, he released his debut solo e.p., named elements - a collection of 5 modern-classical pieces for piano and string quartet, on Too Many Fireworks. In March 2011, he released the follow-up to elements; 'white spring, black cloud' a free Creative-Commons-licensed e.p. on Manchester's Valentine Records.

In August 2012, after a break of almost 18 months, Neil released a double e.p. set mixing modern classical and ambient soundscapes. The collection, titled 'Skies / Seas', was released on Valentine records.

Neil is a keen collaborator, writing and arranging orchestration for others and scoring music for film.
