Erland Cooper shares a new mesmerising ambient album to be listened to while growing your own flowers and plants. The Scottish modern classical/ambient composer creates a hypnotic sonic embrace for thinking about our relationship with nature, blending the sounds of piano, harp, cello, violin and vocals with atmospheric electronics. Nodding to impressionist painting techniques, he intends for the listener to hear new textures upon each listen.

The album’s A Side is the commissioned soundscape for Superbloom, an installation of 20 million newly sown flowers at the Tower of London, to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The music amplifies the installation’s emotional impact, including for the visually-impaired, by rebalancing the dominant city noises and intertwining specific audio frequencies to uncover harmony in the most bustling of environments. The B Side features further entrancing atmospheric tracks vivid with dreamy melodies for piano, harp, cello, violin and vocals.

Vinyl packaging uses recycled paper.

‘Nature’s songwriter … for all its gentleness, Cooper’s songs are deeply emotional’ – The Guardian

‘Calming and Euphoric, with a beauty that’s its own justification’ – Uncut"
