No Fixed Point In Space, the third full-length album by Jack Cooper's Modern Nature, takes the palette of sound and themes that were honed on 2021's Island Of Noise and launches them into an expansive world of openness and vivid technicolour. It's a music that hasn't been heard before; as melodic as anything Cooper has produced but framed by rhythms and instrumentation that reflect the chaos, unpredictability and colour of the natural world. "With this record," Cooper explains, "I wanted the music to reflect nature: beginnings and endings, arrivals and departures, process and chance. I wanted the music and the words to feel like roots, branches, mycelium, the intricacies of a dawn chorus, neurons firing, the unknown. The way you see or hear music in your head is abstract and magic... often more beautiful than what eventually appears on tape. When you sit down with an instrument and begin translating an idea, it quickly conforms. I've tried to develop this music without thinking in terms of set rhythms, time signatures, folk or pop structures, syntax; the devices you associate with the music world which I come from. I wanted to make music that was abstract, free and honest, whilst still being predominantly tonal and recognisably song based. It feels like time to make something that no one has heard before."
