'Emergence' is an epic, immersive audio-visual experience, the debut film directed and soundtracked by producer Max Cooper. The project was initially released in 2016 as a soundtrack to Max’s live show narrative exploring the concept of ‘emergence’. Over time, chapters of the story have been shared online and featured in Cooper’s live shows. Now with audio remastered in surround sound by Cooper and the engineers at Dolby Atmos, the project finally sees its world premiere as a monumental 90 min animated film.
A Q+A session with Max will follow the showing.
The story explores the development of the universe, the creation of unexpected and often beautiful outcomes from simple natural systems, and how complexity, like human beings, can spawn from the immaterial by the action of simple laws embedded in the foundations of reality.
The work is a marriage of cosmic awe and wonderment, a meditation on the mystery of our emotional connection to fundamental natural form. Referencing ‘Koyaanisqatsi’ and ‘Samsara’ in approach, but grounded in imagery from science rather than classic cinematography.
