Radical Scottish composer Erland Cooper, who merges music with evocative storytelling and conceptual art, today
announces his ambitious fourth studio album ‘Folded Landscapes’. Hailed as ‘nature’s songwriter’, for his work celebrating
themes of the natural world, place, people and time, ‘Folded Landscapes’ pushes Cooper's connection to the environment
even further into unchartered new realms.
‘Folded Landscapes’, to be released on 5th May on Mercury KX, sees Cooper work through the lens of urgent observations
surrounding climate change creating a potent, experimental new work. In early 2022, Cooper began a collaboration with
Scottish Ensemble, a collective of pioneering musicians crossing art forms, to champion music for strings.
Doors open at 7:30pm. Show commences at 8pm.
