About Eluvium

The dictionary definition of Eluvium, the chosen moniker of Portland-based musician Matthew Cooper, reads "residual deposits of soil, dust, and rock particles produced by the action of the wind," and listening to Cooper's glacial, ambient dronescapes, one can't help but conclude that the geological comparison is apt. Debuting in the early 2000s with a string of albums for the eclectic modern rock imprint Temporary Residence, Cooper's work has drawn critical acclaim and favorable comparisons to titans of the ambient canon such as Brian Eno. While his earliest efforts took in healthy doses of shoegaze-esque guitar distortion, Cooper slowly evolved into more electronic and classically influenced sounds, synthesizing all of his different approaches on his epic 2013 double album Nightmare Ending.
