This tour will also launch the first of Max's new series of EPs, "Conditions", each themed around different moods
and aspects of the human condition.
Continuing Cooper's aslant style of reworking others' music, the tracks on "Conditions One" were written when
Canadian art-rock band BRAIDS offered Cooper the full set of vocal parts from their debut album, Native Speaker,
to make a collaborative track. The EP could be thought of as a remix of the BRAIDS album, as Cooper has
abstracted that album's vocals to create two new tracks, "Pleasures" and "Automaton".
The EP will be released on FIELDS, a new label dedicated to live- and band electronica crossover, with a video for
Pleasures by French filmmaker Cedric de Smedt.
This EP follows Max's most recent release, a rework of minimalist composer and soundtrack writer Michael
Nyman and UK pop songwriter and vocalist David McAlmont, "Secrets, Accusations and Charges". The video was
created by animator Nick Cobby by motion-scanning the faces of twenty volunteers who responded to a message
on Max's facebook page: https://vimeo.com/42680931
