DescriptionRising UK electronica star Max Cooper has collaborated with Canada?s intellectual art-rockers BRAIDS on a two-part EP named CONDITIONS ONE. The human condition is a well-examined idea ? but as an ex-genetics researcher with a PhD, Cooper takes a somewhat aslant look at humanity with the two collaborations. ?Pleasures,? he says, ?is just that ? an attempt to write something purely pleasurable and beautiful. But Automaton is darker ? an attempt to show how humans are essentially deterministic, trapped in a set of predictable reactions to their environment, their upbringing, their lives?.
All three members of BRAIDS sing, and the tracks on the CONDITIONS EP combine vocal lines, melodies and individual vocal sounds from every song on BRAIDS? most recent album, Native Speaker ? both as ?proper vocals?, and or ethereal, pure sound.
