Coppice Halifax has always been an elementally and seasonally inspired project, a fact longtime listeners know quite well by now. Cornucopiad is the bounty of my first Autumn recording session in 2014, heralding the return of cool air, the smell of smoky backyards and the turning from green to orange and brown. A celebration of inevitable death and decline, self-sacrifice in the name of composting and subsequent rebirth. Renewal through destruction and regeneration. Three pieces of Impressionist techno that tread the borderline between organic and electronic, as with most things this plentiful year has produced. So, make some coffee, put on a sweater and enjoy the first fruits of my Halifaxian Autumn.
