Here’s the official video by Dmitry Zakharov for the track “Micron” by Max Cooper, released on Traum Schallplatten. Zakharov’s visual compositions and saturated colors are stunning, and Cooper’s subtle, elegant background beat grows in intensity and tension throughout this song. I love it. This is a perfect morning run track, for me at least. A lovely track to view the city by.

“Life comes into being, blooms and vanishes. And where all life is built of smaller parts that form a living whole, in this video I created fractals of human body parts that are born, bloom to form a larger, more coherent whole, then die. They’re abstracted hands, ears, and faces similar to Max’s earlier ‘positive mutation’ visuals – tying a minimalist look in with abstracted shapes. Max often works with ideas around the aesthetics of science, and I wanted to connect the scientific idea of fractals to the experience of life itself.”
