Noisy, multi-instrumental, text-laden, Popebama applies the freshness of experimental sound and free spirit of improvisation to precise execution and formal composition. Since 2016, Erin Rogers and Dennis Sullivan have pooled their collective experience as composer-performer-improvisers to uncover new ground in both sound and performance. Joined by composer-performer-playwright Rick Burkhardt on accordion, the program will begin with an improvising trio, followed by a new work for multiphonics + percussion/electronics by Rogers. The event will culminate in the premiere of Wing, a ~30 minute journey of 2 playing/speaking instrumentalists, recounting visual details from a long-ago scene complete with imaginative excursions and daydream-y escapades; the fusion of instruments, sound, and text becoming a singular thought, in the seamless way Burkhardt has become known for.
