Max Cooper – Emergence

The Belfast born, London based electronica producer presents the first album on his new Merge label, a stunning collection of oceans-deep IDM with shades of Jon Hopkins progressive techno, the neo-classical infused ambient beauty of Kiasmos or even a less blurry-eyed Boards of Canada.
Conceived as the soundtrack to an ambitious audio-visual art/science  project, which reflects Cooper’s dual interests in music production and sciences, (Cooper has a PhD in computational biology and worked as a geneticist at UCL) the work is an exploration of ‘natural emergences’, and the laws of nature which determine the evolution of complex
elements that make up life itself. This heavily academic background gives the album a sense of gravitas and clinical wonder and thankfully it stands alone as a beautiful piece of work in its own right
