Chicago-based duo Coppice premiered this piece as a multichannel performance at New York's Music With a View 2011. A delicate mixture of bellows and processed reeds, Vinculum (Courses) structures its subtle sounds within a thinly glazed concotion of sonic events and silences. Elements are introduced, combined, shifted and manipulated until an accordion reprises the initial thematic material, leaving the piece to quietly evaporate. Fragile in its beauty, firm in its construction, the piece challenges and rewards in equal measure.
