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, groundbreaking 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. His latest project was an incredible live set from the Acropolis as part of the Athens Epidaurus Festival.
