Coppice (No? Cu?llar & 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.
They have recently appeared at Spark Festival of Electronic Music and Arts (Minneapolis), Dragonfly Festival (G?thenburg, Sweden), New Music at the Green Mill (Chicago), and several live radio performances. They have developed collaborations with choreographer Rachel Damon (Synapse Arts) and sculptor Alex Miller.
