Permutations Season 5: Popebama/Ogni Suono

Date: October 8, 2016
Time: 8:00 pm

Popebama (Erin Rogers, saxophones and Dennis Sullivan, percussion) and Ogni Suono (Noa Even and Phil Pierick, saxophones) team up for the opening concert of Permutations’ 5th Season at Scholes Street Studio. Ogni Suono will present the New York premiere of my piece “Clamor.”

8pm
Scholes Street Studio
375 Lorimer St.
Brooklyn, NY 11206
Cash Only: $15 / $10 students

Popebama (Erin Rogers, saxophone; Dennis Sullivan, percussion) will perform four adventurous works featuring saxophone, multi-percussion, vocals, and electronics. Northern Cities, the 5th of Matthew Shlomowitz’s Letter Pieces, combines physical activities and sound events invented by the performers and performed within a fixed order, structured by the composer. Paul Pinto’s Hack It is a virtuosic scene for very quick speakers from Paul’s upcoming opera-in-development Thomas Paine in Violence. Broken Umbrella by Erin Rogers is an embellished excerpt from the Call Center scene of thingNY’s opera This Takes Place Close By, featuring a day-in- the-life of a 911 operator. Shedding Waste, by Dennis Sullivan, invites the listener into a virtuosic sound world using table-top percussion to mimic and distort the extended techniques in the saxophone.

Works:
Matthew Shlomowitz — Letter Piece #5 – Northern Cities
Paul Pinto — Hack It!
Erin Rogers — Broken Umbrella
Dennis Sullivan — Shedding Waste

Ogni Suono’s program features pieces from SaxoVoce, a long-term project exploring the wide-ranging musical, dramatic, and theatrical possibilities inherent in the synthesis of saxophone and voice. In Vocalise II, Felipe Lara explores new timbral, rhythmic, harmonic, and expressive possibilities by means of playing and singing through the saxophones simultaneously, echoing twelfth-century Pérotin organum. Kate Soper’s OTOTOI uses the two players, their instruments and their voices, to dramatize the dialogue between the terror of the future and the dread of the present expressed in Aeschylus’ Agamemnon. Full of instrumental racket, vocal noise, and sounds from somewhere-in-between, Erin Rogers’ Clamor is an oversaturation of human and instrument. Inspired by the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins, Zach Sheets uses the contours of the performers’ voices as seeds from which the melodic shapes bloom in his dare-gale, speaks and spells.

Works:
Kate Soper — OTOTOI (2015)
Felipe Lara — Vocalise II (2016)
Zach Sheets — dare-gale, speaks and spells (2016)
Erin Rogers — Clamor (2016)
