With an emotional nudity perhaps more identified with women singer/songwriters, Alan David Cooper weaves his poetic poignancy around his melodic bagpipe of a voice. With this clarion call of a C.D.,Cooper dares the listener to peer into the portal of the inner struggles of the relentless heart.At the same time ultra-personal and all inclusive, each song on Hawking's Radiation radiates it's own unique hue in the rainbow of love that has survived and been endarkened by the Black Hole at the center of every human soul. Cooper, originally a bass player and part-time singer in the Hamilton Face Band (with drummer Ruth Underwood and composer Steven Margoshes)lays claim to his own slice of the great musical pie, musically urging himself and those who hear him to sanctify the holy angst of the dreamer. Beginning in the 1970's, the world renowned Astrophysicist Stephen Hawking was the leading proponent of the theory that nothing that entered a Blck Hole ever escaped. In 2005 Hawking stunned the scientific world, claiming he had been wrong, and that indeed some energy (Hawking's Radiation) did radiate out of a Black Hole. Hail to this scientific giant who, despite a broken body, allowed his mind to travel on a magic carpet ride out into time and space....and to the fact that he was right both times. Since ignorance is bliss, is knowledge 'hell'? Obviously, in the beginning it was assumed we were better off withouth the knowledge that the necessity that mothered the invention of our species was the universe's need to create a Light that was brave, resilient, and 'endarkened' enough to traverse the Black Hole. Despite the fact that this knowledge has always been completely hidden from us and tucked away in the deepest crevices of our archetypal unconscious, recently our species has begun to accomplish our primal purpose. By finally facing up to our 'shadow side' and beginning to fathom the feminine God spirit housed in the Primal Darkness, we have accomplished the initioal alchemy necessary to feel, reveal, and heal The Black Hole. Consequently, in the past few years our collective peering out from behind the veil of our ignorant bliss, has finally created a strong enough Light to make it through the Darkness. Congratulations! Hawking's Radiation is our accomplishment!
