The Second Sunday Concert Series at Boston Sculptors Gallery presents a monthly collaboration with Boston area musicians, programmed by Music Director Aaron Jay Myers. The musicians are often inspired by the sculpture on display and perform interactive works in response to it. All events are free and open to the public and donations directly support the musicians.
NYC-based composer-performer duo Popebama is Erin Rogers (saxophones) and Dennis Sullivan (percussion), specializing in high-energy instrumental works that feature multi-instrument setups, fiery text, vocals, custom electronics, and integrated lighting. Popebama performs public concerts of experimental chamber music, bringing high-level execution to complex ideas, sounds and scores, with the goal of bringing the newest sounds to audiences at the highest level possible. The duo formed in April 2016 when Rogers and Sullivan joined forces to perform a new work by Sullivan at JACK, Brooklyn. The synergy of the two performers and combined interest in exploring experimental sound worlds launched a duo that has since wowed crowds as far west as Salt Lake City and as far north as Edmonton, Canada. Specializing in works conceived by Rogers, Sullivan, and composers such as Paul Pinto, Matthew Shlomowitz, and Eric Wubbels. The duo has commissioned works by Jenna Lyle, Daniel Silliman, and Andrew Greenwald. Popebama has performed on the Permutations, Home Audio, Avant Garasement, and Sound Traffic Concert Series with featured appearances at the Edmonton Fringe Festival (Canada), Diabolical Records (Salt Lake City), and the inaugural VU Symposium (Park City, UT), recently performing for an ecstatic crowd at the 2017 New Music Gathering (Bowling Green, OH). Appearances in 2018 include the Center for Performance Research (Williamsburg), the inaugural SPLICE Festival at the University of Western Michigan and a European tour.
