LWE Presents

MAX COOPER

Electronic music composer and A/V innovator Max Cooper has a brand new sensory extravaganza in the works. Following the wake of his boundary-pushing shows Emergence and last year's incredible Aether/MESH Live, Max Cooper is returning to the capital to showcase his forthcoming album – ‘One Hundred Billion Sparks.’

After spending a month in complete isolation at a remote cottage in Wales, Max Cooper presents ‘One Hundred Billion Sparks’, his third studio album, in which he interrogates notions of identity whilst profiling the complex mechanisms that make us all wonderfully unique. Conceptualised during a period of intense isolation, the album searches for artistry amongst the mechanisms, emotions and constructs which yield our identity and experience.

"'One Hundred Billion Sparks' is my attempt to express what was there after I had removed my everyday life. No phone calls, no emails, no messages, no human contact or conversation for a month, that was the idea. What I found were the fables we live inside, our constructs, the mechanisms which create them, and the experience of parsing them."

This is set to be Cooper's biggest stage yet as he projects his peerless artistic vision onto an iconic London dancefloor.

KOKO London needs little introduction. The venue is the jewel in the crowd of Camden, and to call its dancefloor iconic would be an understatement. Over the last decade, the venue in one of its incarnations has played host to some of the most significant musical and culture junctures of UK entertainment history. The launch of cinema, birth of punk, the rise of new romanticism - the list goes on. Many legendary artists have passed through its hallowed halls, and now live performer Max Cooper gets to add his name to that rich heritage.
