In Coppice we create a nexus of integrated forms connected by our primary focus on sound, audio, and music.

Cores/Eruct is an album about «what is kept in.»

The five tracks are compositions dated between 2009-2012.

In them we’ve intertwined instrumental interaction with electromagnetic interference through structuralist constraints to form complex timbral horizons that engorge, tip and hemorrhage.

The instruments heard are prepared pump organ (Kinder), shruti box, funnels, tape processors, and transmitters.


"Le retour de Coppice (Noé Cuéllar & Joseph Kramer), duo de Chicago, qui nous avait émerveillé avec leur premier CD sorti chez Quakebasket. ‘Cores / Eruct’ continue les voies ouvertes par ‘Big wad excisions’. Les compositions datent de 2009-2012. L’instrumentation reste très particulière, harmonium préparé, shruti box, entonnoirs (?), bandes et émetteur. Toujours cette exploration très musicale des interférences électromagnétiques et des soufflets d’harmonium dans des horizontalités timbrales des plus complexes. Évoquant autant le chant de créatures animales ou de machines orphelines, la musique de Coppice est des plus organiques." –Metamkine {2015}

"I enjoy these 43 minutes all the more for knowing that the equipment may not survive another session, leaning in to the high-fidelity capture of cracked elastic and old, dehydrated bellow fabric." –Jack Chuter, ATTN:Magazine {2015}

"I love how this isn’t explicitly “Electro-Acoustic Improvisation” – despite appropriating many of the genre’s corner/touch-stones – “Composition,” “Sound Art,” or any of the kite-flying / card-carrying experimental-sound allocations; it’s music that simply exists on its own terms." –Keith Fullerton Whitman, Mimaroglu Music Sales {2015}

"Que dire d’autre ? Sinon qu’avec While Like Teem or Bloom Comes, 2015 commence bien !" –Guillaume Belhomme, Le son du grisli {2015}

"Noé Cuéllar and Jospeh Kramer [work together] with electronic and bellowed sounds, morphing both into new timbral sensations through blurring the barriers between their different sonic characteristics." –Ian Parsons, The Sound Barrier {2015}
