New Single – Rush/Release

August 4th, 2016

[bandcamp width=350 height=470 album=595415749 size=large bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 tracklist=false]

I’ve always loved three core parts of the “electronic” music scene: 1) lush forests of sounds to become eternally lost in; 2) hypnotic rhythms that drive your brain to new scenery; and 3) bright melodic work that sings throughout a composition and lifts your spirits. I certainly won’t claim to be the first to key on those ingredients, or the first to try to put them together. However, as I’ve recently gotten more and more practice at realizing them, I think I have accomplished something–finding a trichotomy that sounds, well… like me. For years, I’ve wondered what to do with my solo tracks–a dilemma that has found scores of them sitting eternally unreleased on my hard drive; but finally, now, I’m on a tear of songs that I’m excited to release.

With that, I share my first release under my own name–two quick tracks I hope you’ll enjoy. I release these with no cost, no set designs and no aspirations–but I certainly look forward to any feedback (if you’d like them on iTunes or Spotify for ease of access, for instance, I will work toward it). For now, stream and download them here–and, if they remind you of someone, I ask that you please pass along the link and share my sincere thanks for giving them a moment of your time.

Coming Home

April 22nd, 2016

Two months from today I land back in the U.S. for good. I’m frantically getting ready–but I’ve also been incredibly busy making music, and have made some videos for Wall of Trophies which you can see on our page.

Oh yeah, and I got my Germany souvenir! The MFB Dominion 1 is a monophonic synth from Berlin-based MFB. I had to wait months for this… and I’ve already built it into about 10 tracks. It’s unreal.

B:TON Brunnen

September 2nd, 2015

Last month I spent a few days in Brunnen, Switzerland alongside the Swiss VJ group Videokultur to do visuals for the B:TON Festival, which took place in an incredibly cool abandoned cement factory. In addition to helping with building and installing several pieces and projections, I showcased my piece Circles in one room and I recorded (then looped) a live visual set onsite. We projected the set onto one of the big walls. Pictures below:

New A/V Piece “Meditations” – Live

July 19th, 2015

"Meditations" – Live from Will Copps on Vimeo.

 

Meditations is an audio/visual work created for the PRISM 16 event in Sheffield, England. The piece was recorded via live performance in the artist’s studio in July 2015.

The piece focuses on the attempt to distance oneself from the world via meditation while the sounds of the outside world seep in–at first distracting, but eventually becoming a part of the experience. The piece uses a hybrid greenery/abstract aesthetic to reflect on Sheffield’s art scene and abundance of parks.

Watch the live performance here and see the full piece premiere at PRISM 16 on 24 July.
