Vinculum (Passes) by Coppice is a sound exhibition of sculptural work rendering selected recordings from the ongoing sonic artifact archive Vinculum – a growing project since 2010.

The recordings–which represent subjectively extracted “aspects” of sounds–transduce, resonate, and excite sculptural arrangements of materials like galvanized steel, foam, glass, copper, and aluminum. In this sounding process, the sculptures may twist together material identity with sonic materiality.

Vinculum (Passes) spreads timbral constellations as sound energies are harnessed by various material properties to highlight some aspects at the expense of others.

Coppice (Noé Cuéllar & Joseph Kramer) is a Chicago-based duet of bellows and electronics. Since its formation in 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 bellows 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.

Recently praised as “virtuosic and exact listening,” Coppice has appeared at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, The Flea Theater in New York, Spark Festival of Electronic Music and Arts in Minneapolis, McNeill Street Pumping Station New Music Festival in Shreveport, and internationally in Iceland, Sweden and the Netherlands.
