Electronic music producer, musician and audio-visual artist Max Cooper brings us the UK premiere of his new project Seme, which takes inspiration from Italy’s rich culture & foundational aesthetics.

Across two dates electronic musician and audio-visual artist Max Cooper performs the UK debut of his latest project Seme.

Originally developed for its world premiere at the Saltzburg Easter Festival, Cooper’s new project has been themed around the passion and spirit of Italy. Seme (Seed) takes inspiration from rich Italian foundational aesthetics – combining elements of Italy's history of music, science, philosophy and art. Seme mines Italy’s rich cultural past to create a meditation on the form which yields us, and the world we live in.

Cooper will be joined by Kim Sheehan (soprano), Niels Orens (cello), Tom Hodge (piano), and visuals by multi-disciplinary design studio Architecture Social Club, Yoshi Sodeoka and Davide Quayola. Support artist Odalie brings complex arrangements touching on a world of emotion.

This performance contains haze and strobe lights.
