Gulbenkian and Melting Vinyl presents: Erland Cooper + Special Guests
It gives us great pleasure in collaboration with Gulbenkian to welcome Erland Cooper to this wonderful venue.
Join Erland Cooper as he performs music exclusively from across his Orkney repertoire on a transportive, meditative, “magical and moving” journey though the Scottish Highlands, its folklore, myth and mythology. This will be one of the last times to catch this special live show of his ‘An Orkney Triptych’ tour before he embarks on journeys anew.
“At once calming and euphoric, with a beauty that’s its own justification” Uncut
Erland Cooper is a Scottish composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist originally from Stromness, Orkney. As a solo artist, he has released seven acclaimed albums, including a trilogy of work inspired by his childhood home, as well as themes of nature, landscape, community and time. His work combines field recordings with traditional orchestration and contemporary electronic elements. Through music, words and cinematography he explores identity, memory, and place. He develops these themes further by partnering with well-known artists and writers. Cooper also works across mixed media projects including installation art, theatre and film.
Erland Cooper has also announced a very limited edition vinyl box set collating the triptych. Each album, released around the spring equinox from 2018-2020, takes its inspiration, language and shape from the archipelago of Orkney in Scotland. This new deluxe edition, each signed by the artist, 2018’s Solan Goose, 2019’s Sule Skerry, voted one of 20 Best Scottish Albums of the 21st Century by Clash) and 2020’s Hether Blether. at https://erlandcooper.bandcamp.com/…/an-orkney-triptych…
The Orkney Triptych was performed live, during lockdown, as part of the Live at the Barbican series.
“… at once calming and euphoric, with a beauty that’s its own justification” Uncut
“…a record of simple beauty, exploring the place where electronic and classical music can co-habit” The Quietus
“Wonderfully nuanced songwriting matched to lung-bursting string arrangements.” Clash
“…a meditative, transportive listening experience… an ethereal swoon which imagines Sigur Rós remixed by Bibio. It makes you wonder where Cooper will take you next” Q
“considered, crafted and explorative of details that only someone with a true affinity can delve into. If Cooper’s intent was to create an insular kind of magic, he does so” Loud and Quiet
“Now, with Sule Skerry, he’s expanding his palette, retaining an ambient quality, while bringing in a more epic, moving scope.” The 405
+ Hinako Omori
‘The London-based synthesist built the EP from four years’ worth of instrumental demos, lyrics and field recordings that she was able to thematically link and mould into songs after experiencing “a strange period of having daily migraines with auras for a month.”
“The physical reaction I was experiencing from the auras – the haziness/blurriness/partial loss of sight and spots of light surrounding every day vision – also seemed to reflect the emotions I was feeling at the time – confusion, lack of clarity, ambiguity, mixed feelings of hope and melancholy…” Fact Magazine
