Discrepant:

"The'icon of post-everything', Mike Cooper, returns to Discrepant with a recording of a live set recorded at the Controindicazioni Festival of Improvised Music in Rome in 2003.

The music moves very slowly through four movements:''Reluctant Swimmer'',''Movies is Magic'', Virtual Swimmer'' and''Dolphins''.'Floating in out of the exotic ether and disappearing like smoke, engulfed in the alien hugeness of nature ... a very elegant set by a visionary artist.'

Mike Cooper says'the first half is played on my old 1920s National tri-plate lapsteel guitar and the second half on my vietnamese electric lap steel. I also sing two songs along the way.''Movies is Magic'' by Van Dyke Parks and “Dolphins” by Freid Neil. It was the first time I had ever sung the last song.'"
