Erland Cooper

Thursday

Joining the dots between nature and music, multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Erland Cooper performs works from his acclaimed debut solo album Solan Goose.

Hailing from the archipelago of Orkney in Scotland, Cooper explores the natural word of birds, the sea and landscape, manifesting in an immersive evening of music, words and imagery. Cooper will play tracks from his seminal record and perform new material from his forthcoming album.

Originally part of The Magnetic North and Erland & The Carnival, Cooper has a diverse musical history. His first album Solan Goose was an ode to escapism, written to ease the anxieties of working in a busy city through soothing piano, strings, electronics and wild bird calls; the title tracks on the album are a nod to the local Orkney dialect for birdlife. Cooper is involved with the opening ceremony for the first London Borough of Culture and was commissioned to score NEST - a kinetic light and sound installation which will open a year-long event programme.
