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 second volume opens with Phronesis, a funky and offbeat jam recorded on Brian's wife's birthday with a Boss DR-110 drum machine controlling four Korg Volca machines (Bass/Beats/Keys/Sample), a Teenage Electronics PO-12 and a Korg Minilogue polyphonic analog synthesizer. The two Oxy cuts were also taken from this same live set, themselves ever stranger iterations of the same machines and patches. Mint Gel is a short but sweet bubbly analog braindance track, and (as the title would indicate) Mint Dub manages to reduce it to a shuffle and some reverberated dub spatter. Both of the Mint tracks were generated using the 4x Volcas, Minilogue, Arturia Microbrute, Teenage Electronics PO-12, Korg MS-20 and a Roland SH-32. Finally, the Red Lamp tracks are from a more minimalistic set from late 2017, using only the four Volcas to build up their sequenced psychedelia.

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!
