about

'McCooey has a phenomenal ear for the unknown and seems unafraid to leap into waters that many would deem too deep; and it pays off, as he ends up with an incredibly memorable album in his hands', Piano & Coffee Co.

The Double, the second album by the Australian musician and composer, David McCooey, is an album of powerful, postclassical melodicism and uncanny soundscapes, blending organic and synthetic instrumentation. In part an homage to the short story collection of the same name by the acclaimed Australian author Maria Takolander, The Double uses found samples, voice-to-speech synthesis, and inventive production techniques to form new mesmerising sonic spaces.

The album cover art is by the Melbourne artist, Michele Burder.
