About Alder & Ash
Alder & Ash is a cello in its absolute extremes of silence and violence. Montreal-based instrumentalist Adrian Copeland combines the elements of contemporary classical music, noise, doom and explores the dichotomies of the minimalism of maximalism, peace and cacophony, terror and chaos. The project is based on broad, unorthodox inspirations that are revealed in ready-made compositions. While music is rooted in classic minimalism and post-rock, you can also find influences of black metal, industrial, classical musical impressionism and ambient.
