Video: Max Cooper "Fragments of Self"
- Words: DeForrest Brown
Working in collaboration with contemporary classical composer Tom Hodge, Max Cooper's Fragmented Self Pt. 1 is the first installment in an ongoing series of EPs. Lifted from that release is "Fragments of Self," which has just been treated to a music video by director Nick Cobby. The piece positions 3-D objects inside of vast, curved spaces—all of which appear bleached and sterile. Within those spaces, gooey-textured and prismic figures contort in response to Hodge's stammering piano licks. As the video progresses, its visuals become more organic and detailed, so much so that the items seem real and borderline tangible. The effect just adds to the disjointed and conflicting emotions of Max Cooper's production.
