BÂTIMENT DES FORCES MOTRICES
For nearly ten years now Max Cooper has been honing his technique behind the desk, finally acquiring a solid reputation as a producer, with both the public and the professionals. His career has also led him to the stage at Electron Festival last April, for the release of his first full-length format, Human, genuine jewel of modern and hypnotic techno, oscillating between melodic layers and rhythmic eccentricities. This time he will present a novel project at Présences Electroniques Geneva, specifically imagined for the event and the requirements of the acousmonium.
Knowing the impeccable track record of the former genetic researcher we realize how lucky we are. Max Cooper is a prolific artist with more than 50 tracks and as many remixes on his name on labels as bold as Traum Schallplatten, Herzblut or Fields, and has been ranked amongst the 10 best lives by Resident Advisor and is 5th best artist listed on Beatport. Renowned for his both physical and spiritual performances, this true “hero of modern techno”, according to Mixmag, impresses everybody every time. As a producer at the crossroads between Border Community-like trance-y productions and the sombre darkness of Pantha du Prince, Max Cooper doesn’t forget his relentless pursuit of animal rhythmic that mark his productions, while basing his creative process on the emotions and images experienced during the composition. His first opus, Human, a real affirmation of his status as an artist, arrived just in time to establish him as one of the finest sound goldsmiths of the electronic sphere. A great moment awaits us.
