Max Cooper

Max Cooper is a polymath composer whose recorded output bridges the divide between electronica and modernist classical, and a performer whose live performances graduate from experimental sets at MUTEK to sit-down gigs in concert halls to playing crushing techno in front of 10000 people at Awakening to the audio visual sensory overload of his 4D shows.

Few have been so successful in interrogating and furthering the intersection between electronic music, visual art, technology and science in the past decade as Max Cooper. Working with collaborators and large-scale institutions like the Barbican, Zaha Hadid Architects and Dolby Atmos, Cooper has developed a mixed-media approach to creation. Whether walk-through light installations, ground-breaking use of 4D sound, or club-ready techno releases, Cooper’s output of electronic exploration makes use of available technology while referencing that which came before it, and does so in a human way.

His fourth studio album Yearning for the Infinite was created following commission from the Barbican to respond to their annual theme of “Life Rewired”, exploring what it means to be human when technology is changing everything. The project encompasses film and web media as well as Cooper’s typically lush and emotive sonics, brings to life our insatiable desire for more via impactful storytelling, abstract visuals and audio.

Synthesising his interests and presenting it in an accessible way that defies conventional format, Cooper explores concepts of emergence, identity and infinity to create an immersion of sound, vision and concept that can totally remove you from your normal experience of reality and put you somewhere new. At the core, Max Cooper’s mission as a musician, a DJ and an interdisciplinary artist is all about provoking a greater understanding
