The British Council, H2D and Dovzhenko-Center represent the London musician and genetics of Max Cooper with the audiovisual performance "Emergence", which will be held on December 8 at 21:00 in the series of parties Selector Live.
Max Cooper holds a special place in the music industry, as an artist who creates multi-touch shows. Experimental dance music in them is bordered by saund-art and visual art for the sake of visualizing scientific phenomena.
Cooper's performance is based on his second studio album "Emergence" (2016), which is a mixture of club techno and "flickering" electronic ambient. The story told in the performance reproduces the chronology of the universe - from the Big Bang to the Future, and each of its sections is created with the help of visualization of real data ("real data visualization") in collaboration with various artists, mathematicians and scientists.
Max Cooper was born in 1980 and grew up in Belfast. Over the past decade, he has perfected his complex, but melodic techno-sound, releasing an impressive number of singles since 2007. In 2008, he received his Ph.D. in Computational Biology at Nottingham University. In 2014 he released his first studio "Human", in which Cooper explores the origins of human nature, and in his next work "Emergence" the musician goes further, asking himself the question, with what the surrounding world is designed.
Cooper also collaborates with contemporary classical composers Michael Naiman and Nils Fram.
