Hailing from the archipelago of Orkney in Scotland, the contemporary composer and multi-instrumentalist has so far explored the birdlife (2018's Solan Goose), the sea (2019's Sule Skerry) and, on Hether Blether, his third album, he turned his attention to the land and its people. Named after a hidden island in folklore, said to rise green and fertile from time to time from the foam. Inspired, in essence, by Orcadian poet George Mackay Brown, filmmaker Margaret Tait and composer Peter Maxwell Davies before him, this final album is a celebration of the Islands' memory held in timeless landscape, community, myth and mythology. The album looks to the past through the stories of the island and to the present and future through its people.


Originally part of acclaimed bands The Magnetic North and Erland & The Carnival, Cooper has a diverse musical history. 2018 debut solo album Solan Goose was an Album of the Year at BBC Radio 6 Music, the Quietus, and more; and Sule Skerry has already been crowned a BBC Radio 6 Music Album of the Day. Cooper also scored NEST, a giant kinetic sound and light installation. It was a collaboration with the groundbreaking Marshmallow Laser Feast to open London's first Borough of Culture celebrations.


PRAISE FOR ERLAND'S WORK:


". at once calming and euphoric, with a beauty that's its own justification" - Uncut
".a record of simple beauty, exploring the place where electronic and classical music can co-habit" The Quietus


"Wonderfully nuanced songwriting matched to lung-bursting string arrangements." - Clash
"...a meditative, transportive listening experience. an ethereal swoon which imagines Sigur Rós remixed by Bibio. It makes you wonder where Cooper will take you next" - Q


"considered, crafted and explorative of details that only someone with a true affinity can delve into. If Cooper's intent was to create an insular kind of magic, he does so" - Loud and Quiet


"Now, with Sule Skerry, he's expanding his palette, retaining an ambient quality, while bringing in a more epic, moving scope." - The 405
