The Great Escape - Music & More

Since the demise of his previous band Ultimate Painting, Jack Cooper - under his Modern Nature guise - has never stopped looking ahead, exploring and reaching for something further. Since 2019, he's released an EP, last year's mini album Annual, one full length LP, one 7" and three live cassettes - in the process mapping out astonishing new terrain. Island Of Noise presents an obvious new peak in his discography. Over the last 12 months, Cooper has constructed a beautiful, free-flowing box set's worth of material featuring a new album, a separate and equally engaging instrumental interpretation of the album and an accompanying book featuring the work of wide-ranging, non-musical artists (including Booker-nominated poet Robin Robertson, mycologist Merlin Sheldrake, illustrator Sophy Hollington, and writer Richard King) that reinterpret, deconstruct or take inspiration from the 10 tracks on the record. Island Of Noise represents an absolute career highlight, combining Cooper's celebrated songwriting and compositional skills with a free flowing expansiveness coloured by British free music luminaries such as saxophonist Evan Parker, pianist Alexander Hawkins, bassist John Edwards and violinist Alison Cotton, as well as long term collaborators Jeff Tobias and Jim Wallis.
