  • Prepared pump organ (Kinder)
  • Modified Boombox(es)
  • Transmitters
  • Acoustic filters

Analogous to the interactions between prepared shruti box and tape processes, Compound Form centered on those between an amplified prepared pump organ (Kinder) and tape processes in an extended musical arrangement of various compositions.

Bramble (2012), Scour (2009), So Lobes Drape As Such Gills Over A Hanger’s Pit (2013), Pivot (2011), While Like Teem or Bloom Comes (Tipping) (2012), and Brim (2009) are present in Compound Form, none of which are revealed as wholes but as a “summer amalgam” at full dynamic expression.

Compound Form was performed numerously in Chicago and throughout tours. Its instrumentation sprung compositions that formed the core of Coppice’s live repertoire between 2012–2014, staged stereo recitals presented close-up to the audience.
