Max Cooper at o2 Ritz Manchester

Max Cooper has carved a unique space as an audio-visual artist with a science PhD & an international reputation as a leading electronic musician.

His work carries an emotional resonance & sensory immersion, often focusing on humanity’s place in the world. He merges electronic music & visual art with scientific enquiry through installations, live performances, immersive audio-visual experiences, digital media & award-winning music videos.

Unspoken Words is Cooper’s 6th studio album & the latest in an impressive back catalogue that dates back to 2007 when he juggled studying Computational Biology with being resident DJ at a local techno club.

He recently supplied the music for a powerful video narrated by Greta Thunberg & Pope Francis & played at COP26, urging world leaders to consider climate and environment in Covid recovery plans. Last year, he became the first techno artist to play at the Acropolis in Athens, Greece.

Other work includes commissions from The Barbican, France TV & collaborations with Zaha Hadid Architects, The Babraham Institute, & L-Acoustics. Remixes include contemporary classical musicians including Philip Glass, Nils Frahm, Terry Reilly & Michael Nyman, & pop artists Hot Chip and Moby.
