Issued quietly in the dead of 1991 on compact disc, Windows and Light is Suse Milleman’s only album. The synthetic, balearic album “came out of living the experience of having a mother with Alzheimer’s disease,” Milleman recalled. Recorded in her Eugene, Oregon, home on a four track, Windows achieved a remarkably polished sound with the help of producer Patrick J. Miller. On one of the ten-song album’s many highlights, “Walk In The Fire,” Millemann asked: “Am I willing to meet myself? Am I willing just to meet?” This is followed by a re-recording of the massive “Patterns”—the breakout hit of our 2018 Switched-On Eugene compilation, which Millemann described as “richer and deeper” than the captivating original. Windows and Light is a true rarity, a complex and fascinating recording whose true depth only reveals itself through repeat listens.
