Discography

The magical experience of seeing raw clay become a detailed representation of a complete woman is unlike any live art performance I have ever seen.

The feedback we receive from audience members varies from awe to astonishment to sheer joy. We aim to inspire, and we seem to be successful. Marco Cochrane is quite literally the only figurative sculptor in the world doing such exquisitely detailed, personal work with women. It is also very rare for an artist, much less a sculptor, to reveal his craft, and allow others to become a part of the process of creation.

We recently produced a life size sculpture for a large venue on New Year's Eve. Others performers included Les Claypool, The Neville Brothers and the New Orleans Social Club. The event and the James Brown Tribute sculpture was a huge success. Another new life-size sculpture has been created since then, and a heroic size 10-foot armature has already been built for the next grand creation.

Photo galleries of the sculptures and a complete press kit with video clips can be seen at www.marcocochrane.com

Set List

We can design a sculpture to accommodate any event theme. We are both attractive, extremely personable with the audience, and bring a dynamic energy to the show is certainly contagious. I guarantee you that no one has ever seen anything like this before. Once we begin, it’s hard to take your eyes away.

Life, love, attraction, creation, frenetic energy, spontaneity, intensity, inspiration, and total freedom is what you'll experience at a Marco Cochrane Live Sculpture Show.

Thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to working with you.
