Max Cooper’s latest EP follows on from his extensive Emergence project, continuing to explore the symbiosis of music and science with visual representations of data.

The opening tracks, ‘Chromos’ and ‘Coils of Living Synthesis’, are beautifully delicate soundscapes of organic life inspired by genetic research undertaken at the Babraham Institute. The former also features an accompanying VR video by long-time collaborator Andy Lomas, the production of which used a simulated model to predict what DNA looks like inside a cell.

Distant chords and subtle glitches emerge from a hypnotic groove in ‘Molten Landscapes’, whilst ‘Four Tone Reflections’ builds a vast sonic spectrum over 12 minutes. For the ‘Chromos’ remix, Cosmin TRG turns the fragility of the original into a beastly, warped techno monster.

By handling the information with care, Max Cooper presents his ideas with a coherence that allows the listener to consider scientific research in astounding new ways. Mikhail Spivakov, Research Group Leader at the Babraham Institute, spoke on the collaboration:

‘As a biologist I am passionate to find ways to make our science more accessible, to help people understand what we do and why we do it…It was amazing to see how the project took real data from the lab and turned it into a multidimensional experience which allows people to get more closely acquainted with our DNA, what it does and how it looks, making it almost palpable.’

With this Chromos EP Max Cooper keeps expanding his unique artistic approach by interpreting scientific ideas into visual-audio art.
