"Three perspectival accounts."

Part of Coppice's study in Bellows & Electronics (2009-2014).


released November 20, 2011

Composed by Noé Cuéllar & Joseph Kramer.

Track 2 was recorded live at the Packer Schopf Gallery in Chicago on November 20, 2011. Tracks 1 and 3 were recorded live at the Joseph Bond Chapel, University of Chicago on September 6, 2011, including room recordings by Greg O'Drobinak.

Track 2 features Andrew Furse's Apiary, a double-feeder, double bellows free-reed aerophone. It contains two independent/identical air reservoirs with interchangeable reed-board tops. Sounds are obtained by opening small wooden slides that cover holes directly above block-mounted reeds. The feeder bellows are hand pumped and fill opposing wedge-shaped reservoirs pressurized by spring force. The air chest constitutes a near entirety of the instrument where all bellows and reed-boards are mounted. Folding legs allow the Apiary to be easily transported and played either sitting or standing. Construction details can be found at

Originally released on CD-R by Rhizome.s (#08) in 2015.
