Very pleased to be welcoming one of the most excting electronic artsists to Gorilla on Saturday 25th May.

Max Cooper has carved out a unique position for himself as an artist, merging electronic music, visual art and science through installations, live audio-visual and immersive sound experiences. His label, Mesh, the embodiment of these passions, releasing music which is part of wider collaborations in the arts and sciences.

Born in 1980 and raised in Belfast, Cooper pursued music as well as science, earning a PhD in computational biology in 2008, while crystallizing his complex yet melodic sound, and his impressive run of singles dating back to 2007. Since then he has developed his live performances with a focus on sensory immersion, with surround sound live shows 4D Sound, Hyperform, a 360 audio and visual surround dome experience with Canadian artist Maotik, his surround club show featured at Berghain, Aether, and collaborations with Future Wife and Zaha Hadid architects.

As a DJ, his contributions to the BBC’s long-running Essential Mix series in 2015 and Balance’s mix compilation in 2018 showcase his long history as a selector dating back to the late 90’s as a resident, and contextualized his striking sound amidst his peers. His productions and performances have earned him many merits including several RA top100 listings in both the live and DJ categories.

Max has also collaborated with contemporary classical composers Michael Nyman, Tom Hodge and Nils Frahm, and most recently with Bruce Brubaker to rework Philip Glass scores in a live context, including shows at Cité de la Musique in Paris and Sonar in Barcelona.

Cooper has built a significant catalogue, the debut album ‘Human’ (2014) featured stunning vocal contributions from Kathrin DeBoer and Braids’ Raphaelle Standell-Preston, was a sweeping and cinematic work that employed aggression and nuance in equal doses.

Then Emergence in 2016, zoomed out to look at the building blocks that make up the world around us. Involving collaborations with mathematicians, scientists and visual artists, the project is summarised at http://emergence.maxcooper.net. Lush and subtle with a glowing melodic streak that runs throughout, Emergence is a document of pure sonic alchemy that only Cooper could present in such an intriguing form.

2018 saw the release of Cooper’s third studio album, critically acclaimed 'One Hundred Billion Sparks', which began with a period of complete isolation and rebuilding his studio in the Welsh countryside, and resulted in a body of work which interrogates notions of identity whilst profiling the complex mechanisms that make us all wonderfully unique.

Since the release of One Hundred Billion Sparks, Max has toured an 270 immersive audio-visual show which employ the roof and walls to envelop the audience in his world of visuals. Alongside a busy touring schedule, ‘Aether’, the light field installation of countless shimmering points born of a collaboration with Architecture Social Club, is being exhibited and toured as a bold new form of live audio-visual experience, hovering overhead the audience, creating 3-dimensional moving forms in sync with music.
