Coppice, formed in 2009 by Noé Cuéllar and Joseph Kramer, has quickly established itself within Chicago’s experimental sound scene, placed firmly along the lines of composers like Haptic, Olivia Block and Cleared. The duo has branched out into many creative sound settings, but Pied finds them returning to their original inspiration: a boombox modified to play back and record simultaneously. Here, they feed it with recordings made on a pump organ while recording in Fljótstunga, Iceland, resulting in some extraordinarily pleasing and hypnotic tones. But it’s the duo’s meticulous pacing and dynamics that makes the piece work as it moves between deeply engaging organ drones and decaying tape textures. The result is more exquisite proof of Coppice’s unique vision of creative and honed sound exploration.
