Coppice: Matches (Category of Manifestation)

Label: Category of Manifestation    
Released in: USA    

"Matches is "a story with many holes" for lovers of music and sound. The album formed from various collaborative processes between 2009-2015. It's made up of various compositional structures (studio, live, and a mixture of both), it was recorded in various locations (in and out of Chicago in both home and studio settings), with many instruments and objects related to bellows and electronics (shruti boxes, prepared pump organ, and tape processes), as well as new technologies and signal processors of custom design."-Catagory of Manifestation

"Their music is full of noises caused by what most musicians would consider imperfections, creaks and clatter, but instead of masking these noises, they are drawn out and become the defining characteristic of the sounds produced. These delicate sounds are knit into heavy textural pieces and the reward of these painfully crafted instruments is immediately apparent in their music."-Sullivan Davis, Resonance Series, 2015
