Coppice - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
Coppice (Noé Cuéllar and Joseph Kramer) present "By The Ankles", a last Chicago concert before a temporary hiatus. Music for physical modeling and modular syntheses projected as a multichannel sound design with fake air and images. Coppice's LP release "Surreal Air Fortress" is upcoming this Fall on Entr’acte, "Preamble to Newly Cemented Dedication to Freedom" is out now on Aposiopèse.

"Though clearly recorded and rigorously performed, Coppice’s songs bewilder. They teeter on the edge of the familiar and flirt with recognition, but are comprised of sounds that evade identification." –Lucas Schleicher, Brainwashed
Katherine Young - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Katherine Young
Composer, bassoonist and improviser Katherine Young creates acoustic and electro-acoustic music that has been described by the New York Times as “raw, wailing, coloristic,” and New Music Box has noted “her visceral approach to sound…her attentiveness to the smallest details of timbre; her adventurousness in using instruments in unexpected ways.” Ensemble Dal Niente, Talea Ensemble, Flux Quartet, String Orchestra of Brooklyn, Spektral Quartet, Fonema Consort, and others have performed her compositions. As an improviser, Katherine amplifies her bassoon and employs a flexible electronics set-up. She has documented her work on numerous recordings, and she performs regularly as a soloist, with her duo Architeuthis Walks on Land with violist Amy Cimini, and with projects such as Pretty Monsters and Till by Turning.
Hal Rammel - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Hal Rammel
Hal Rammel designs and builds musical instruments for the recording and
performance of original compositions and improvisations. He has released
recordings on Atavistic, Crouton, Soutrane, and Penumbra Music. His most
recent recordings include Agog featuring a variety of solo percussion
pieces using tabletop arrangements of amplified palettes and Fractures &
Phantoms, a set of duets with cellist Matt Turner.

His musical instruments, drawings, cartoons, and photographs have been
exhibited at Audible, Corbett vs. Dempsey, and the Museum of Contemporary
Art in Chicago and at the Racine Art Museum and Woodland Pattern Book
Center in Wisconsin. A large collection of his instruments (many designed
and built while he lived in Chicago in the early 1990s before moving to
southeastern Wisconsin) were recently added to the permanent collection of
the National Music Museum in Vermillion, South Dakota.

Hal Rammel is the host of the Alternating Currents on WMSE-FM in Milwaukee
and has curated the Alternating Currents Live concert series at Woodland
Pattern Book Center in Milwaukee since 1996.
