Duende Entendre: The sound art duo formed in 2008 by poet/singer/bassist Sam West and composer/percussionist/sound artist Ron Coulter. The duo works in the continuum of free improvisation and composition, creating manifold events of encapsulating soundscapes, provocative vignettes, and spontaneous statements in sound. Acoustic instruments and found-instruments are combined with both analog and digital electronics and the expanded possibilities of the human voice. West’s improvised and composed poetry is exploded into sound-language by the voices of West and Coulter, while virtuosically extrapolated by their instruments and electronic tools.
