Max Cooper has always been intimately connected to his surroundings.
An electronic music who tied himself in to the landscape, his work shifts in subtle ways as his life undertakes various changes.
Deciding to get away recently, Max Cooper booked himself into a cottage in a remote part of the Welsh countryside, seeking some form of escape.
Matching musical complexity to the freedom isolation offers, new album ‘One Hundred Billion Sparks’ is the result.
Every piece of music on the album is tied to a visual idea, making this one of Max Cooper's most ambitious, multi-faceted projects to date.
Out on September 20th (pre-order LINK), the producer will also play a show at London's KOKO venue that very evening.
New song 'Rule 110' has found its way to Clash, and it exemplifies Max Cooper's fusion of technical daring and emotional intimacy.
Wonderfully balanced, it's a finely nuanced piece of work, matching lengthy ambient textures to short, chopped up mosaics of melody.
Tune in now.
Catch Max Cooper at London's KOKO venue on September 20th.
