"Really happy to announce one of my favourite artists will be joining us for the London album launch party to play a DJ set – Vessels !" Max Cooper

EMERGENCE is an epic, operatic, ambitious amalgamation between audio-visual show, scientific research project, art installation, and IDM record. It’s the debut release on Max Cooper’s Mesh label and his second full-length release.

Experience EMERGENCE live in the capital this December, at the dramatic grade II listed Islington Assembly Hall. Built in 1929 the venue is enshrined in history and the building’s stunning backdrop of art deco features will add to the ambience. Expect an audio-visual journey where all your senses will get the chance to experience the album in an interactive form. 

EMERGENCE is the story of the development of the universe, the way in which, very complex things like human beings were created from the immaterial by the action of simple laws.

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 at Mutek, Japan on November 2nd 2016. Together the work is a marriage between the cosmic awe of a Carl Sagan film and the musical wonderment of Sigur Ros, made for meditating on the mystery of our emotional connection to fundamental natural form.

Max has synthesised his skill as a producer and his deep interests in science to create a Hadron Collider-grade ambient techno world, in the lineage of The Future Sounds of London’s ‘Lifeforms’ for 2016. It’s also one of the most beautiful records you’ll hear all year.

Final release tickets on sale now.

This is a 16+ event.
