Marie Wilhelmine Anders It's such a gem, this release! - "Swarm" almost overwhelms me with the abundance of details, but I find the kick that constantly changes to the new, faster tempo and the extremely slowly developing siren synth sound completely lifted. For my taste, opposites come together as skillfully as I was looking for. "Reflect" and "Spike" run into similar open doors to me and I will have a lot of fun listening to them. For sure! Favorite track: Swarm.

andrew williams Just when you think you have heard it all before and no longer think you will hear something new in music, Max Cooper releases Earth.Surge is awe inspiring multi dimensional complex but at the same time simple a real work of musical art. Favorite track: Surge.

Vldmir Gen surge! oh my gosh!!!
Favorite!. Delicate sound, thoughtful. Surge, spike! It envelops ... serious electronics and is free in its sound. The finest work in detail .. No patterns in the sound! This is the top! The sound design is minimalistic in character, but expressed as comfortably as possible in spirit. I am impressed!!! Favorite track: Surge.

juSt b_music Yet another masterpiece from Max. Exquisite textures, beautiful melancholic chords, and signature glitchy goodness. Surge really pulls you in deep with that lush tension - definitely my fave but each one is amazing. Favorite track: Surge.

    Earth - A fusion of environmental commentary and meditation on form

    Pledge: We will donate 20% of profits to the Ecotree organisation from sales of 'Earth' EP

    Following from recent contemporary classical album ‘Glassforms’, reinterpreting Philip Glass scores with acclaimed pianist Bruce Brubaker, Max Cooper returns to the core of his art with the Earth EP - beautiful, intricately scored electronic pieces accompanied with short films visualising epic scale earthly processes, human growth, storm surges, evolving ice formations and ballooning cityscapes.

    ‘Swarm’ was scored intimately and precisely to the new short film by the award-winning McGloughlin Brothers, reversing the usual role of Max commissioning Kevin and Páraic. It’s a story of humans on our planet, replicating out of control, told via sequenced satellite stills providing a stop frame barrage of growing built environment, every frame seemingly synced to another click and sound effect as the audio and visual continue to grow in intensity throughout as the human population does the same in front of our eyes.

    The music is full of humanity, playfulness and powerful emerging intensity as Cooper bathes us in layer after layer of otherworldly synthesis, harmony, clicks, fuzz and micro-rhythm. It's music for those seeking emotional connection, as much as audiophiles and late night dark rooms, full of 3-dimensional binaural sound whizzing past your ears and around your head as constant low end harmonies wrap you inside a warm audio bath.

    Subsequent tracks from the EP will be released in coming weeks, each with their own visual accompaniment as well as their own poster print image of detailed leaf vein structures, which Cooper collected and photographed as part of the process of creating the record. A feast of audio, visual and emotional ideas from Max Cooper.
