Eluvium

Portland, Oregon resident Matthew Cooper records ambient music under the alias Eluvium. With effects-heavy guitar drones that would feel equally at home on an album by Brian Eno or Fennesz, his recordings obtained a passionate following among fans of post-rock and experimental indie. Over time, his sound grew and branched out, incorporating strings, vocals, pianos, and more overt classical influences. His debut release, Lambent Material, was released on the Temporary Residence imprint in 2003. The acclaimed shoegaze-drone album was followed in 2004 by a solo piano album titled An Accidental Memory in the Case of Death. Arriving in 2005, Talk Amongst the Trees expanded on the sound of his debut, incorporating more electronics, and was followed by Cooper's entry in Temporary Residence's Travels in Constants EP series. Another EP (When I Live by the Garden and the Sea) was issued in 2006. Eluvium's early 2007 full-length, Copia, had more of a symphonic feel than his prior releases. Australian label Sensory Projects released his first two albums (with previously unreleased tracks) as Indecipherable Text, and Eluvium shared a split LP with Jesu.

Cooper then took a short break from the name Eluvium, issuing his 2008 album Miniatures under his own name. In 2009, Temporary Residence issued Life Through Bombardment, Vol. 1, a seven-LP box set compiling the majority of Eluvium's discography to that point. Released in 2010, Similes included percussion and vocals for the first time on an Eluvium recording. The album was accompanied by two EPs built around album tracks, The Motion Makes Me Last and Leaves Eclipse the Light. A limited-edition album titled Static Nocturne (consisting of a single 50-minute piece) was also issued that year. Cooper's soundtrack to the film Some Days Are Better Than Others (composed under his own name) was issued by Temporary Residence in 2011. In 2012, Cooper diverted from Eluvium again, releasing an IDM-influenced 7" single titled "Worker" on Lefse Records under the name Martin Eden.

Eluvium's long-labored double-disc set Nightmare Ending, featuring a vocal cameo from Yo La Tengo's Ira Kaplan, was released in 2013. In early 2014, a limited-edition LP titled Catalin, consisting of two pieces commissioned for an art installation by Charles Long, was issued by The Contemporary Austin. Soon after, a CD of Cooper's original compositions was included with Wisdom for Debris, a book of paintings by artist Jeannie Lynn Paske, who had created artwork for many of Eluvium's releases. The year 2014 also saw the release of the self-titled debut album by Inventions, Cooper's duo project with Explosions in the Sky's Mark T. Smith, as well as an Eluvium EP titled Pedals/Petals, issued by Vinyl Films. Inventions released their second album, Maze of Woods, along with two EPs (Remixed and Blanket Waves) in 2015. In 2016, Temporary Residence issued Life Through Bombardment, Vol. 2, a vinyl box set compiling Eluvium releases from Similes forward. The box included a disc of previously unreleased material titled Curious Things. This was followed in 2016 by studio album False Readings On. ~ Rob Theakston
