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. Erin Rogers (saxophones), and Dennis Sullivan (percussion), NYC-based composer-performers, 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, Sullivan, and composers such as Paul Pinto, Matthew Shlomowitz and Eric Wubbels, with upcoming works by Jenna Lyle, Daniel Silliman, and Andrew Greenwald, the duo has performed on Permutations, Home Audio, Avant Garasement, Sound Traffic Series, Diabolical Records (Salt Lake City), VU Symposium, and Bodies-As-Technology / Squaring-the-Circle, with lauded appearances at the Edmonton Fringe Festival (Canada), and the 2017 New Music Gathering. Popebama was recently featured at the inaugural SPLICE Festival at the University of Western Michigan.
