Since its foundation in 2009, Chicago-based Noé Cuéllar & Joseph Kramer have departed from bellows and electronics to create original compositions, installations, discography, arrangements for performance, and sculptural objects. Drawing from their expanding glossary of study, the duo is currently focused on live repertoire with custom instruments, prepared pump organ, and electronic processes. Recently praised for “blurring sounds and centuries,” Coppice music has been released internationally, recently by Pilgrim Talk (US), Triple Bath (GR), Consumer Waste (UK), and Senufo Editions (IT). Coppice has appeared at numerous settings and festivals in Chicago and the US, and internationally in Iceland, Sweden, Greece, and the Netherlands. Noé Cuéllar & Joseph Kramer are 2 boys (men) very experimented in all kinds of "non-music" and highly recommended to everybody wants to ear something different and really original, out of common and (why not) rebel to the "establishment". Musical expression acts as a vehicle for the soul on multiple levels: from one individual declarative intent to a collective, of passions functioning as one unit. The strength of the conduit, that which gives life to the music, whether it is one or many, often determines the potency of the art-form that emerges. The relationships that exist behind the scenes seep into the music and inject a keenly unique flavour. Whether it is the vitriol that exists between estranged band members or it is the deep bond that exists between lovers, the all-too-human music acts as a mirror for the profound depths of those responsible. This means that, not only is an enigmatic transmission the result of that which lies within, but it is also a reflection of the idiosyncrasies that bind the unit together.
