  • Rare 2xCD-R Special Edition [Out Of Print Archive Copy]
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    More artifacts unearthed while unpacking and moving into the new studio! I've found ONE COPY of the special edition double-disc version of Dilate / Erode, the deep drone-techno split between Coppice Halifax and Submersion (now both incidentally Ohio natives). The bonus 2nd disc contains a single 80-minute rendering of the isolated field recordings and textural atmospheres generated for use as a "backdrop" over/under the split tracks. This version of Dilate / Erode went out of print within the first day of its release, making this copy a total rarity. In the years since the release, I've kept three copies of this version for myself, and in trying to downsize in the new studio space, I'm only now keeping 2x of any one release for myself. To the first lucky person goes the prize!

    **NOTE: The items listed in the back catalog sale have all been found while unpacking. Some of them have been packed away for years in storage, and may have small imperfections. These are being sold as is, as the artifacts they are, to raise money for implementing the new studio. No refunds will be given.

Along with several other current and forthcoming Coppice Halifax releases, this split project with Submersion ushers in a fresh and unique approach to techno as a genre. Combining elements of heavy drones, field recordings and excessive analog processing with throbbing kick-drum rhythms, dense compression and dubby chord punctuations, Dilate/Erode is a massive exercise in deep sonic exploration and experimentation. Sometimes, as atonal as it is musical, meandering chords drift around icy textures and windy hums as a bass pulses metronomically like a heartbeat heard inside the womb. The two artists' contributions intertwine so seamlessly and naturally that one might be hard pressed to tell the difference without a tracklist, and special attention has been given to creating an immersive atmosphere over and under the songs using mutated field recordings by both artists. Presented in a very limited edition of just 50 copies, with the first 25 containing an exclusive second CD-R of the field recordings and atmospheres minus the music.
