MELTING VINYL PRESENTS:
ERLAND COOPER & ENSEMBLE + Midori Jaeger +Johanna Bramli
In celebration of his upcoming record release ‘Folded Landscapes’ on 5th May 2023 via Mercury KX / Decca, highly atmospheric composer Erland Cooper will be joining Melting Vinyl for this very special headline show.
Prolific Scottish composer Erland Cooper, who merges music with evocative storytelling and conceptual art, tours his ambitious fourth studio album ‘Folded Landscapes’. Hailed as ‘nature’s songwriter’, for his work celebrating themes of the natural world, place, people and time, ‘Folded Landscapes’ pushes Cooper’s connection to the environment even further into unchartered new realms.
‘Folded Landscapes’, to be released on 5th May 2023 on Mercury KX / Decca, sees Cooper work through the lens of urgent observations surrounding climate change creating a potent, experimental new work. In early 2022, Cooper began a collaboration with Scottish Ensemble, a collective of pioneering musicians crossing art forms, to champion music for strings. Using drastic temperature changes – from sub-zero to hottest on record – he developed this piece for chamber string ensemble, piano, voice, harpsichord, electronics & field recordings.
‘Heavily influenced by Philip Glass’s music, Cooper is even more playful with how far he can push the classical patterns, completely disregarding them at times.’ Hackney Citizen
Cellist, singer and songwriter Midori Jaeger is a London-based artist who makes emotive songs that refuse to fit into a box.
