Julian Victor Corrie (born 20 June 1985), better known by his stage name Miaoux Miaoux, is an English producer, musician and songwriter based in Glasgow, Scotland. He is signed to Chemikal Underground Records, who have released his albums Light of the North[1][2] and School of Velocity.[3] Prior to his solo career Corrie was a member of the Glasgow based band Maple Leaves.[4]

Corrie is currently a member of Scottish indie rock band Franz Ferdinand and has created remixes for CHVRCHES, Belle & Sebastian[5] and Lindstrom, amongst others. Corrie plays all the instruments on recordings himself, and performs live with drummer Liam Chapman (Prehistoric Friends, Quickbeam, Friends in America) and bassist Liam Graham.

Early life and education[edit]

Corrie was born in Nottingham, England. He spent his early childhood in Peru, where his father worked. Corrie studied the piano from a young age, and was introduced by his older brother to sample-based music, including Portishead and the Propellerheads.[6] He completed the Tonmeister degree at the University of Surrey.

Career[edit]

After graduation, Corrie took up a placement at BBC Scotland in Glasgow, where he has since regularly worked as a sound engineer.

Light of the North was recorded and produced by Corrie himself, and mixed by Paul Savage at Chem 19 Recording Studios. It was nominated for the Scottish Album of the Year Award in 2013. The album artwork is by James Houston, a frequent collaborator of Corrie's, particularly in Polybius, a short for Channel 4's Random Acts, which Houston directed. Corrie produced the single "I.D.L.U" by Bdy_Prts, a project by Jill O'Sullivan of Sparrow and the Workshop and Jenny Reeve of Strike the Colours which was released on 3 March 2014. He has worked alongside comedian Robert Florence, producing tracks for the television show Burnistoun. Florence's production company, Bold Yin Productions, also produced award-winning artist Rachel Maclean's short Germs for Channel 4, for which Corrie provided music and sound design. Corrie has continued to work on further projects with Rachel Maclean as well as the National Theatre of Scotland.

The album was favourably reviewed by Drowned in Sound,[7] The Scotsman,[8] The Skinny,[9] The Line Of Best Fit,[10] and The List.[11]

On 19 May 2017, it was announced that Corrie had joined Franz Ferdinand along with fellow new member Dino Bardot as the band's new keyboard and synthesizer player.[12]
