MAX COOPER // Mind bending new video for remix of Hiatus' 'Third'

"Consistently proves himself to be one of the most peerlessly beautiful recording artists in modern dance music" - IDJ

"'The End of Reason' a truly sublime beatless tour de force that recalls Philip Glass, Aphex Twin's most serene moments and even Henryk Gorecki's Symphony No. 3" -Resident Advisor

Rare, audiotoxic colourtropical phenomena from Madrid, Vicetto have created a mind bending video for the remix of Hiatus' 'Third', one half of Max Cooper's remix EP, 'Amalgamations'.

"I used particles that where sound driven. I used Cinema 4d node based programming to drive the separate layers of sound Max sent me. Piano1 and Piano2 emits particles that are traced onto the centre and its movement is based on parameters like complexity and amplitude that are modified according to the input sound of these layers. There is also some relation between the sphere growing and the bass, as well as iran strings with clicks." Designer behind Vicetto, Charlie Vicetto

Max Cooper's EP is out now and is working on a new album for a 2012 release.

The facts are easy to establish: Max Cooper has more than 50 original releases, tracks and remixes under his belt, from glitchy reinterpretations of big bands like Hot Chip and Au Revoir Simone to straight dancefloor 12"s like his breakthrough ‘Serie’ originals and remixes for names like AgoriaDominik Eulberg, ExtraweltPig and DanKaiserdisco and Sasha.

The EP, ‘Amalgamations’ includes two remixes:  a rework of cinematic electronic producer Hiatus’ ‘Third’ and a Get People remix, previously released as a download. There has always been a strong focus on the visual and this release will be no exception with a video commissioned and scheduled for ‘Third’ later this month. In the past, artists like Whiskas Fx and Nick Cobby have been commissioned to make videos for his music (see them here). Cooper’s fans also enthusiastically produce their own creations to accompany his work (a selection can be viewed here).

From his breakthrough trilogy of ‘Serie’ releases on Traum Schallplatten - the first released in 2009 and with each track inspired by a different scientific or mathematical concept - Cooper has built a reputation for one-off originals, killer remixes and challenging DJ and live sets.

The melancholy composer’s live sets can raise blisters in a club, but Cooper is as comfortable writing abstract electronica as he is writing dancefloor techno 12"s. He is a rationalist with an otherworldly, idealistic side; a wildly creative musician who until recently had a day job as a sober genetics researcher.

Recent performances include ones at Lightbox, Vauxhall, Alpha-Ville Festival, XOYO with Pantha Du Prince and Jon Hopkins,Picnik Electronik Festival, Montreal and Decibel Festival, Seattle. He headlined Electrowerkz last month with support from experimental electronic duo, Ghosting Season.
