Few have been so successful in interrogating and furthering the intersection between electronic music, visual art, technology and science in the past ten years as electronica and techno producer Max Cooper. With his new project Yearning for the Infinite, he attempts to capture the overwhelming vastness of infinity, our human obsession with the unobtainable, and its embodiment in the modern data explosion.
It's his most expansive project to date. Presented as both an album scored to a visual story and a mind-blowing immersive audio/visual live show, Yearning for the Infinite was born out of a commission from The Barbican, the arts and learning institution dedicated to pushing boundaries.
Where previous full-lengths have explored the birth of the universe, the formation of natural law and the inner workings of the mind, Yearning for the Infinite once again deals with immense topics.
