Originally from the rugged hills of County Donegal in the North-West of Ireland, the variety of terrain reflects the wildness and lack of adherence to popular convention in the compositions of Mike McLoone.
An initial flash of inspiration during a Dave Angel techno performance in 1998 would set in motion large grinding mill wheels that continue their work to this day. Combining the love of music with a background in computers, electronic music would become the focus for the next two decades.
Graduating with a masters degree in Music Technology, McLoone has had releases on the renowned Swiss label Peak Records. A student of Lasse Nipkow of immersive audio consultants Silent Work, Mike has been taught how to mix for current 9.1 surround systems. Acoustics tuition by Mikael Fernström at post-graduate level included the design and build of an acoustic guitar, room acoustics and human audio perception. Piano tuition by concert pianist Lefki Karpodini as well as harmony and counterpoint studies under the two time Emmy winning composer Lars Deutsch round out the profile.
Over fifty individual track releases to date, spanning four albums and seventeen singles, cover a variety of forms rarely explored by a single composer. He has exposed upon pop, rock, ambient, trance, techno, psy-trance and classical. All of which help to balance and refine the grinding mill wheels as they ceaselessly regenerate and create, over and over again.
