« Is This The Spot »
Is This The Spot?
Composed by Noé Cuéllar & Joseph Kramer
© Coppice. 2017
A perspective tube for a question from Dream of Newly Cemented
Dedication to Freedom.
Since its foundation in 2009, we have departed from bellows and
electronics to create compositions, installations, discography,
instruments, arrangements for performance, software, and sculptural
Drawing from its expanding glossary of study, we’re currently focused
on expansions and emulations of our sonic foundations (in bellows and
electronics) using a newly designed musical infrastructure that departs
from physical modeled instruments and modular synthesis.
Coppice is currently transitioning onto a new world of finer sonic
illusions of digitally-seeded air, binary clocks, and impossible
II — Yvan Etienne

Composed and recorded by Yvan Etienne, 2017.
Serge Modular, field recordings.

Yvan Etienne is active as a sound experimenter interested in issues
surrounding site-specific audio installations and as a composer
proposing weighty reflections on perception and the physicality of
sounds in space.
Etienne has not been lacking for collaborative work in recent years,
undertaking projects and performance with the likes of Phill Niblock,
Yann Gourdon, Richard Glover, Brice Jeannin, Patrice Grente, Julien
Ottavi, Robert Poss, Paul Panhuysen, Marie and Verry Joachim
Montessuis, to name a few, as well as acting as curator and director of
the Ohcetecho aux Presses Du Réel collection.
III — Tarab
« Notebook : Carbon/Soda »
Composed and recorded by Tarab / Eamon sprod. 2017.
© Tarab. 2016/2017.
Tarab explores re-contextualised collected sounds and tactile gestures
formed into dynamic, psycho-geographical compositions inspired by
discarded things, found things, crawling around in the dirt, junk, the
ground, rocks, dust, wind, walking aimlessly, scratchy things, decay
and most if not all the things he hears and sees. More than simply
documenting a given site, tarab is interested in a direct engagement
with our surrounds, teasing out half narratives, visceral sensation,
false leads and heightened awareness.
IV — Jean-Luc Guionnet « Warming Choir »
Jean-Luc Guionnet : Church organ
Recorded in Verneuil sur avre, 29 nov 2014.
© Jean-Luc Guionnet. 20014.
Mostly known as an alto saxophone player, Jean-Luc Guionnet is also
illustrator, theoretician, eletroacoustician, sound installation
artist, and... organist. He has been exploring the church organ for
decades. His work focuses in part on hijacking the mechanics of the
instrument: barely pulled registers that let in just a gasp of air, the
sound of moving articulated elements – “extended techniques” for an
instrument usually known for its grandiloquence. These unusual sounds –
especially inside a church – become the building blocks of a
mechanoacoustic music whose playing field ranges from inaudible to

Musician whose principle instrument is the microphone. For twelve years
he has been composing, inventing sound art installations and teaching.
His work has been presented in more than 15 countries. Tilly finds
inspiration in different environmental analysis protocols and how they
have impact on the notion of listening.
He worked with Jean-Luc guionnet, Junko, Dave Phillips, Raphaël Ilias,
and Claire Bergerault & Fabrice Favriou in L'Échelle De Mohs. Lives
and works in Nantes, Fr

Tomoko Sauvage « Mylapore »
© Tomoko Sauvage. 2009.
Tomoko Sauvage, Japanese musician and sound artist based in Paris, has
developed a natural synthesizer, an electro-acoustic system using
hydrophones (under-water microphones of Aquarian Audio) immersed in
porcelain bowls of different sizes filled with water.
She plays with water waves and drops resonating in the bowls, also with
her new sonic exploration, audio feedback creating waving drones and
natural overtones. Since her solo album, "Ombrophilia », she made
performances in Europe, US and Japan, often in solo but also in
collaboration with Momus, MC Schmidt (Matmos), Gilles Aubry, André
Gonçalves, Francesco Cavaliere…
In 2011, a new set of porcelain bowls was created during her residency
at La Pommerie (FR) in collaboration with Ceramic Research Center of
