from the edge // Johnstone Fund presents Popebama + Tower Duo

Date: August 9, 2020
Time: 3:00 pm

NYC-based duo Popebama (Erin Rogers, saxophone + Dennis Sullivan, percussion) and Columbus-based Tower Duo (Erin Helgeson Torres, flute + Michael Rene Torres, saxophone) team up for an afternoon of video premieres presented by the Johnstone Fund for New Music. Tower Duo leads the show with the premiere of “Deceptive Stillness: Isolation Vignettes” by Michael Rene Torres, a new work of 8 miniatures for flute and saxophone and video that explores eclectic scenes and sounds. Popebama takes the stage with the premiere of Wing, a story told through small sounds and sentence fragments by Obie award winning composer/playwright, Rick Burkhardt followed by the premiere of edgewise, a masked excursion into the world of electronic voice phenomena for two performers + electronics, by Kittie Cooper. The program will conclude with Rogers’ Light-On-Light – a fiery adventure in time and transit.

To continue an 8-year tradition of presenting live music, Craft in America will stream a series of virtual mini-concerts, Sundays at 2 p.m. this summer.

Aperture Duo brings us a video compilation from Snapshot, a multidisciplinary performance project for this socially distant time. Performed and recorded “live” over Zoom, Snapshot is a series of short instruction pieces written for Aperture Duo to explore chamber music in the time of quarantine. Join us for microtonal drones, conversations, coffee, lemonade, dogs, violin, and viola!
