Milieu returns to Recycled Plastics, bearing a new catalog of improvisations and excerpts from live performances. Bismuth Cosmolog will consist of tracks (or sections) taken from live Milieu sets, which Brian felt were better off in these isolated pieces than as a part of a longer session. Since the process of Milieu sets is ongoing, so too will the series be.

This first volume opens with the namesake track, a 14-minute exploration on only two pieces of hardware (a Korg Minilogue polyphonic analog synthesizer and a Teenage Electronics PO-12 drum machine). Phasing from melodic braindance bounce to something more plaintive and calm, it leaves the door wide open for Friday Night Lazer, a rehearsal of the live set that has since been released as Saturday Night Lazer at Milieu Music. In some ways, Friday is the "single version" of Saturday, although it's a little more spaced out in the lead lines than its companion. Friday was created using four Korg Volca machines (Bass/Beats/Keys/Sample). The two Age Onyx tracks originated from a quite heavy test session for the Minilogue and PO-12, with the latter playing ping-pong with an Alesis Quadraverb's sampler mode and a Synthrotek PT2399, to really fuck everything up. Bismuth Beats is a single piece, split into two distinct sections, that further mutates the same sequences and patches used on the title track.

Bismuth Cosmolog will be a simple but funky series of live curiosities and snapshots of moments where the vibrations in the air seemed to be mingling just right. Originating from live recordings means these tracks are best enjoyed very loud on a stereo system with substantial low end output!
