Vinculum (Coincidence) was composed by Noé Cuéllar & Joseph Kramer between October 2010 and January 2011, originally for two live accordions and four speakers with aleatoric content. It was conceived for its week-long live presentation in February 2011 at Without You I Am Nothing: Interactions, a performance series curated by Tricia Van Eck for the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
Vinculum (Coincidence) includes the recordings S-1 02.01 004:44, S-1 03.01 005:36, and T-M 01.01 003:50 from Vinculum, Coppice’s archive of sonic artifacts. The studio arrangement for CD was developed between May 2011 and November 2012. The accordion duo score recordings were engineered by Todd A. Carter in June 2011 at Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago.
