Coppice: Copse

@ ACRE Projects

1913 W 17th St, Chicago, IL 60608

Opening Friday, December 3rd, from 6PM - 9PM

A performance and installation by Coppice (Noé Cuéllar and Joseph Kramer) with sculptures by Alex Miller.

Copse is a three-movement composition for performed multi-channel sound installation, based on the atomization and dispersal of instrumental aspects. The products/by-products of the instrumentation are separated and shuffled spatially and temporally, in an effort to present the parts-to-the-whole relationships as fluid and continuous.

Coppice (Noé Cuéllar & Joseph Kramer) is a Chicago-based duet of bellows and electronics. Formed 2009, they have produced original compositions for stage, fixed media, and performed installation settings, with a focus on adhering textural attenuation, processed gradation, the contours of instrumentation, and their multiple aspect highlights.

Their variable instrumentation departs from bellow and reed instruments (accordion, pump organ, shruti box, harmonica), custom electronics (reproduction, transmission, spatialization, interference and gentle feedback), and multi-channel systems adapted in ways responsive to location, audience flow, and aural perspectives.
