Manners McDade's Max Cooper Announces New Label and Album

'Emergence' will be released on MESH this November

Manners McDade's Max Cooper Announces New Label and Album

Max Cooper (published by London-based Manners McDade) is launching a new record label MESH, which will debut his second album this November. 

'Emergence' is Max's second full-length album following Human (2014) and, fitting into the core of the Manners McDade signature sound, incorporates influences from neo-classical, techno and IDM. 

The record was conceived as a soundtrack to a new series of 11 pieces of video art, each exploring a different facet of the concept of 'Emergence'. The full A/V live show will premiere on the road for a series of Autumn dates, including at Mutek in Japan. 

As on previous records, Max has collaborated with film composer Tom Hodge and vocalist Kathrin deBoer on 'Emergence', creating an epic, operatic, ambitious amalgamation between AV show, scientific research project (Max has a Ph.D in Computational Biology), art installation and IDM record. 

Genre: Music & Sound Design
