Sound Colloquium: Coppice

 

Wednesday, April 9, 4:15 p.m.
MacLean Center, 112 S. Michigan Ave., room 522

Since its foundation in 2009, Chicago-based Coppice (Noé Cuéllar & Joseph Kramer) have departed from bellows and electronics to create original compositions, installations, discography, arrangements for performance, and sculptural objects.

Drawing from their expanding glossary of study, the duo is currently focused on live repertoire with custom instruments, prepared pump organ, and electronic processes.

Praised for "blurring sounds and centuries," Coppice music has been released internationally, recently by Pilgrim Talk (US), Triple Bath (GR), Consumer Waste (UK), and Senufo Editions (IT).

Coppice has appeared at numerous settings and festivals in Chicago and the United States, and internationally in Iceland, Sweden, Greece, and the Netherlands.
