Biography

Born in Tennessee and raised in Louisville, KY, Matthew Cooper relocated to Portland, OR several years back and has since spent many a night holed up in his house transforming the vibrations in his brain into sweeping walls of elegant noise. With a depth ranging from fragile to glacial, he takes dense layers of guitars and pianos and builds them into an awe-inspiring fortress around himself. ... Read more in Amazon's Eluvium Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Being Dragged Down By Sinking Sands 13 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
This album is another fine addition to the collection of Eluvium's body of work, and this time its back to drone, loop, and delay sounds of his debut work Lambent Material.

There are 8 tracks on this album ranging from short piano led pieces which are most like the last record, to full on 7+ minute ambient passages akin to the debut album.

This is a fascinating mix of Eluvium mixing classical influences with technology and again, it really is sublime.

Calm of the Cast-Light Cloud is an astonishing 5 minutes of wonder, possibly Eluvium's finest piece of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute masterpiece of subtlety 24 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
It's only been in the last year that I have got into ambient music, but this is an absolute must for any beginner in the genre. The first track alone builds up numerous layers of near-white noise to create one of the most beautiful pieces of music of recent years. Stunning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just let go 7 Oct 2008
By Jes
Format:Audio CD
Well, I had not heard any Eluvium before but loving electronica, ambient etc I decided to try it. In fact it is playing as I write this, it arrived from Amazon today.

So I got home from work to find this in my postbag and put it on and fell asleep half way through the second track.
Not a promising start, so when I woke I put it on again and hurriedly listened to the first few tracks. I have minimalistic stuff and thought ok more of that then.

But I didn't understand, I was too hasty, thought I knew better, thought I had it sussed before the cd finished. I was wrong.

This indeed is drift music, swirling soundscapes, loops and waves but with an emotional depth. It commands you to be still, and you will be still before the last track is out.

I am playing it a third time, already it has a grip. By the 'Calm of the Cast-Light Cloud' the point of it all becomes clear, to be still, to be silent, to be at one, at peace and totally adrift.

Quite wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars If I could grow another limb, this would be it ! 31 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Alright that was a bit hokey - but seriously, you know how when you find something you love, and feel is perfect, and will always love, and will always be perfect, and you never tire of it, and know you will never tire of it, and how it has sectioned off a corner of your brain just reserved for remembering it, and reverberating when it is in contact - well that is this album.

I can't categorise it, because it cannot be categorised - Eluvium are just Eluvium - something classical music might have evolved into if it hadn't got up it's own art and decided that beauty and pleasure were no longer part of it's remit.

Calling it ambient too is a disservice to it. It is so much more than that. It is just simply beautiful music.

4.0 out of 5 stars warm and fuzzy 7 Mar 2005
By somethingexcellent - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Matthew Cooper (aka Eluvium) has released one album per year now for the past three years, and they don't always fall into a neat cubbyhole. His first album Lambent Material showed a couple very strong cards in terms of ambient electronic music, while his follow-up of Accidental Memory In Case Of Death moved in completely different directions as a short release of improvisational piano pieces that was hit or miss in terms of quality but still managed to show something new from the young artist.

Talk Amongst The Trees moves back in the direction of the first release from Cooper, and in terms of overall flow and composition it's light-years beyond his first release. With eight tracks that run almost an hour in length, it's also much more grand in scope, and while some pieces probably run a smidge long, the overall effect of the album is lovely. The album opens with the soft haze of "New Animals From The Air" as delayed guitar loops drift over warm washes of sound for almost twelve minutes. "Show Us Our Homes" again feels right at home on a bed of clouds as wafts of backwards guitar and rounded-off feedback form a semi-transparent fog of sound.

The middle section of the album is easily the strongest, and it's because of tracks like "Everything To Come," in which the soft squalls of feedback seem to mingle with each other in just the right ways while the almost seventeen-minute epic of "Taken" induces trancelike behavior with its simple but highly effective guitar arpeggio that seems to climb and climb without ever really going anywhere. The beauty of the latter track is one of simplicity, but the suggested movement of the track (through subtle builds in the background layers of the track) is what keeps the listener involved.

While most tracks on the release are content to drift and wander through different variations on the same sorts of fuzzy, flickering themes, it's also a comforting release that works so well because it doesn't break out of the hypnotic spell that it sets for itself from the beginning. While Lambent Material had a couple amazing tracks, it was also somewhat inconsistent in terms of overall sonics and how it progressed. This newest release doesn't have that problem at all, as it continues through the same, slightly blurry realm during the entire running length of the album. There aren't a lot of surprises, but there aren't any letdowns either. If you like your ambient music shimmering, this is the album for you.

(from almost cool music reviews)

5.0 out of 5 stars gorgeous 22 Sep 2005
By doug - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If ambient music is your thing or if you enjoy long, drawn-out and beautiful soundscapes, than the new Eluvium is for you and will most likely end up being one of your favorite albums of the year. I don't know how this guy manages to release an album a year but I hope he keeps the pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drifting in the Ether 11 Mar 2008
By D. Gilbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I don't typically buy 'nice things'. I'm a fledgling graduate student that frowns at the bits of iron that scrape off of my pots and into my Mac 'n Chez with each use. However, last summer I used a bonus to buy some new Bose headphones as a treat to myself, and this was the first album I wanted to test them with. This is one of -those- albums.

To be honest, I can only name 2-3 songs titles off the top of my head and probably wouldn't be able to put the tracks in their proper order. I think that emphasizes the fact that this piece does not grip you in a particular moment and make you replay that last song necessarily.

This album would be in my personal top ten, though. The repetitive waves of droning guitar recall the haze-ensconced cover art, which is hard to separate as a visual representation of the music. It has been my experience that whatever is wresting your thoughts, Eluvium is able to assuage any neural cacophony.

While I think it a bit strong to refer to a CD as a 'spiritual experience', I would be lying if I said I didn't ever find my mind wandering into certain philosophical realms when 'One' comes on my iPod.

So if you're looking for something to put on when you're typing up that report simply as a non-invasive background accompaniment or you're going on a solo hiking excursion in the Andes, I would recommend you give this a whirl.

4.0 out of 5 stars a dive into emotions 5 Oct 2006
By myles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Temporary residence, the record label that holds eluvium described Matthew Cooper's music as "walls of sound that are so emotionally gripping that you might think its coming from inside you" and I personally think they are absolutely right. The opening track of talk amongst the trees, "new animals from the air" sets the mood for the rest of the album. The strong sounds fuel a whirlwind of emotions either uplifting or depressing triggering thoughts and inspirations. This album acquires a certain mood for it to really be appreciated, for me this is an open minded and personally productive state of mind. When listening to this album I found myself absorbing every sound that was being thrown at me and loosing myself in a kind of trance, really taking into account everything that the songs were made to do. As eluvium's music is all instrumental the cd booklet is without lyrics but this is compensated by some amazing short poems written by Phillip Cooper. The poems fit perfectly well with the music and only add as jigsaw pieces to the picturesque thoughts that the sounds provide. Talk amongst the trees is a record that puppeteers your heart, making its strings do as it wants, this album is definitely worth buying but only to be listened to with the most open of minds.
