Following St. Peter’s veneration in 33, Popebama formed 2000 years later in a swarm of warm honey and wooden harmonicas, collecting sounds of years past and forging textures of tomorrow. Through virtuosic execution of non-traditional sounds, NYC-based composer-performers Erin Rogers (saxophones) and Dennis Sullivan (percussion), apply text, electronics, and high-energy instrumental writing, to communicate to worlds beyond measly Earth (though we love Earth and the rich soil).

Specializing in works conceived by Rogers and Sullivan, Popebama collaborates with composers such as Paul Pinto, Matthew Shlomowitz, Eric Wubbels, Jenna Lyle, Daniel Silliman, and Andrew Greenwald. The duo has performed in living rooms, concert halls, record shops, auditoriums, garages, abandoned warehouses, cafes, university recital halls, your mom’s summer home, bookstores, basements, and theatres, for audiences ranging from 1000 ecstatic fans to 1 sound guy. Featured on the Edmonton Fringe Festival, Permutations Series, Home Audio, Avant Garasement, Sound Traffic Series, Diabolical Records (Salt Lake City), VU Symposium, and Bodies-As-Technology / Squaring-the-Circle, with lauded performances at the 2017 New Music Gathering (Bowling Green), NASA 2018 Biennial Conference (Cincinnati), SPLICE Festival (Michigan), and the inaugural Re:Sound Festival (Cleveland). Popebama’s 2018/19 season includes engagements at UMass Amherst, and Ball State University, with featured appearances on yarn|wire’s Stone residency (NYC) and a European tour.
