Hemispheres 4 | Music of the World | MIKE COOPER
For the fourth instalment of the Hemispheres series, join us and experience the live film score of ambient and exotica music of MIKE COOPER.
Wednesday 26 April
Tura and PSAS are pleased to present international musical explorer, folk-blues and experimental music legend Mike Cooper to perform his live score to the classic film ‘White Shadows In The South Seas’ at Packenham Street Arts Space on April 26 as part of Hemispheres. Cooper’s favoured instrument is a vintage 1930’s National tri-cone resophonic guitar played acoustically and ‘treated through a series of digital sampling and looping devices, his voice and a vast collection of found sounds.’
Lawrence English of Room40 describes the live score as “a sunset-like dream, spanning the horizon in pulsing waves of richly coloured rhythms, tropical sound fields and pacific-inspired slide guitar.”
“Running his Hawaiian loops sweet and slow, Mike Cooper’s homage to Arthur Lyman is a masterpiece of contemporary exotica.” – The Wire.
