Coppice

Coppice is interactions between the capture and generation of sound and music from custom designed and prepared instruments and devices.

It draws from its glossary of study in bellows and electronics, and in digitally-seeded air from physical modeling and modular synthesis to form compositions for performance, recording, and moving image.

Presentations include live performance for stage and installation settings, sound sculpture and objects, photography, video, and software.

Founded in 2009 by Noé Cuéllar & Joseph Kramer.

COPPICE







Review


— For a while it was possible to describe the duo Coppice’s often indescribable music simply by identifying their many instruments, particularly the harmonium and accordion wielded by Joseph Kramer and Noé Cuéllar.
But the notion of renewal is built right into their name: the word “coppice” refers to the practice of pruning a tree to promote new growth. The two are in the process of discarding old methods and tools in order to better represent themselves in terms of connections—between sound and visual art, between artist and audience, between the tools themselves.
In an interview for "Never Nervous" they explain, “First we choose and prepare the instruments and technology, then we find the music relationships between them and each other’s techniques in performance.” — Bill Meyer
