Max Cooper announces ‘One Hundred Billion Sparks’ LP
After spending a month in complete isolation at a remote cottage in Wales, Max Cooper has announced his third studio album, titled ‘One Hundred Billion Sparks’ viaMESH.
He says” “We are one hundred billion sparks. One hundred billion neurons whose firing creates feelings and ideas. One hundred billion neurons that make us all different yet connected.
For me personally, the foundations of nature, in the broadest sense (including us), carry the most beauty and maddening incomprehensibility. The more something is distilled, the more its beauty is crystallised. That is why I am compelled to look for foundations as a general approach.”
His previous album ‘Emergence’ applied this reasoning outwards but for ‘One Hundred Billion Sparks’ he applied it inwards. “‘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.”
The first track ‘Hope’ has been release on Soundcloud and the full album is out on 20th September.
