Hello EMPortal People,

My name is Adam Cooper. I am an American textural guitarist, songwriter, record producer (Alison's Halo, Astrobrite, lovesliescrushing, Tribes Of The City), engineer, and experimental noise-maker living in the Arizona desert.

Currently recording under the name Heavy Sunrise

https://heavysunrise.bandcamp.com

Heavy Sunrise centers around the electric guitar, a vintage Digitech PDS8000 Delay/Looper pedal, a handful of eclectic stompboxes, extreme volume, and Ableton Live to generate hazy, hypnotic textures and warped, wobbly tones.

I'm excited to discover new music here.

Adam - Heavy Sunrise

Adam Cooper is an American textural guitarist, songwriter, record producer, engineer, and experimental noise-maker living in the Arizona desert.

Heavy Sunrise centers around the electric guitar, a vintage Digitech PDS8000 Delay/Looper pedal, a handful of eclectic stompboxes, extreme volume, and Ableton Live to generate hazy, hypnotic textures and warped and wobbly tones.

Cooper's songwriting and incendiary guitar work in famed 90s shoegazing outfit, Alison's Halo, laid the foundation for much of the effects-laden music on these latest recordings. The recording, production, and mixing techniques he employed working on Alison's Halo debut "Eyedazzler," Astrobrite's ground-breaking "Crush" LP, and - more recently - with Latvia's dreampop legends, Tribes Of The City, helped to further shape and sculpt Heavy Sunrise's spacey soundtrack-esque symphonies.

Heavy Sunrise's cinematic, otherworldly compositions have been described by SomewhereCold (USA) as being able to "transport the listener to another vast universe, with all its colorful nebulae and alien environments."

As a child growing up during the fading years of the space race, Cooper's earliest memories are those of grainy black and white photos and blown-out color footage of astronauts, cosmonauts, NASA's mission control screens, experimental aircraft, rockets, bleeping satellites, and epic missions to the moon. These indelible images, along with the excitement of new technology, the wild spirit of exploration, and the vast - and lonely - expanse of space, are all equally embedded and thoughtfully balanced within his music.

From the sensation of drifting weightlessly, to being caught in the roaring blast of a Cape Canaveral rocket launch, Heavy Sunrise leaves listeners tethered to the earth while still floating helplessly in the far-flung reaches of outer space.
