Category of manifestation:

is something that means to fill others’ empty submission information criteria.

It creates physical KIND_s, the contents of which comply with Schedules for World Formation
(to instantiate the Desired World Box).

But Category of manifestation: is not about the future!


Sarah Hennies
Gather & Release
Limited edition hand-sewn packaging
April 5, 2016

Gather & Release is the result of years worth of composer Sarah Hennies’ exploration of the vibraphone in synthesis with her experiences of identity, obsession, anxiety, tension, grief, and loss.

Over the course of an hour, Hennies entangles highly focused percussion playing with field recordings, sine waves, signifiers from her personal & family history (including a 20+ year old recording of her grandfather reciting poetry), and bilateral stimulation, a tool for anxiety release and a major component of EMDR therapy (a branch of psychotherapy that focuses on relieving the patient of disturbing memories as a treatment for psychopathology).

Gather & Release is personal, immediate, yet reserved. Coppice welcomes Sarah Hennies to Category of manifestation: with this challenging new work of reclaim.

Sarah Hennies (b. 1979, Louisville, KY) is a composer and percussionist currently residing in Ithaca, NY. Her work is primarily concerned with an immersive, psychoacoustic presentation of sound brought about by an often grueling, endurance-based performance practice that Nathan Thomas of Fluid Radio described as, “a highly sophisticated and refined performance technique…that starts and ends with listening and encourages a different way of listening from its audience.”

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 locatons (in and out of Chicago in both home and studio settings), with many instruments and objects related to bellows and electronics (prepared shruti boxes, prepared pump organ, and tape processes), as well as new technologies and signal processors of custom design.

The Saga Edition CD release of Matches is to be handled from all sides. The packaging was designed by Coppice for jewel case, metal mesh, colored thread, and transparencies, and is available in a numbered limited edition of 100.

“The better you can see yourself happily reflected the happier you become (equals biofeedback.)”

In Coppice we create a nexus of integrated forms connected by our primary focus on sound, audio, and music. Cores/Eruct is an album about «what is kept in.»

Its five tracks are compositions dated between 2009-2012.

In them we’ve intertwined instrumental interaction with electromagnetic interference through structuralist constraints to form complex timbral horizons that engorge, tip and hemorrhage.

The instruments heard are prepared pump organ (Kinder), shruti box, funnels, tape processors, and transmitters.
