About this item

New album from AV artist and synthesizer obsessive Max Cooper entitled "Unspoken Words". Lead single "Everything" is an excitable expression of freedom and joy, an explosion of colour referencing classic synth sounds from Max Cooper’s formative years and the golden era of idealism in music and popular culture of the '80 and '90s.

'I love feeling that anything is possible. It feels like I’m bursting and need to find some expression. The synths seemed to carry the hope of everything I could imagine, condensed into the simple chord progression, improvised pads and layers of distortion. It was a lot of fun to work with, and spending time in that creative mindset generated lots of ideas which could be shot down later under less manic conditions.'

Cooper developed the visual story for "Everything" with long term collaborator Nick Cobby and photographer Andrey Prokhorov, who has a huge library of imagery from around the world. The raw expression of Cooper’s own mental state illuminates the universal experience of being human. "Unspoken Words" offers common ground, a unifying space for anyone who faces internal discordance and feels the need for greater connection and greater expression.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Decorated with rich, emotive, full-bodied synthwork; these expansive soundscapes are both immersive and transportive and offer almost an evermore grandiose alternative to acts like Fort Romeo, Daniel Avery and Leon Vynhall. Big room electronica that kicks like a mule!
