Rogers, Erin: Dawntreader (Relative Pitch)

Performing on saxophones and cymbal, the debut album from NY-based Canadian-American composer, saxophonist, and performance artist Erin Rogers uses multiphonics, vocalization, circular breathing, and inciting of outer resonance to add layers of complexity to her gripping improvisations, which she describes as "No electronics, no bandmates, no composers... just me + dark room + 2 saxophones".

Artist Biographies:

"Based in New York City, Erin Rogers is a Canadian-American composer, saxophonist, and performance artist dedicated to new and experimental music. Named a "rising star" (Broadway World), her music has been described as "whimsical, theatrical" (Brooklyn Vegan), "a wild ride" (An Earful), and "so complex, it's primitive." (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). Her work explores the intersection of chamber music, sound alchemy, and theatre, moving freely between acoustic and electronic worlds, with performances at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Roulette, The Knockdown Center, MATA Festival,Ecstatic Festival, Prototype Festival, Nief-Norf Summer Festival, wasteLAnd, and internationally, at the Centro Nacional de las Artes (Mexico City), Resonanzraum (Hamburg), Círculo de Bellas Artes (Madrid); NyMusikk Bergen (Norway), Edmonton Fringe Festival (Canada), Splendor (Amsterdam), and the World Saxophone Congress in St. Andrews, Scotland. Crossing genres, from theatre-to-installation-to-silence, through collaborations with Orange Theatre, Panoply Performance Laboratory, Harvestworks, Experiments in Opera, Decoder, and Music for Contemplation, Rogers' music has been featured on the French Quarter Festival (New Orleans), Continuum Music Festival (Memphis), Charlotte New Music Festival, SPLICE Festival (Kalamazoo), Bowling Green New Music Festival, Foro Internacional de Musica Nueva Manuel Enriquez (Mexico City) and the mise-en Festival (NYC). She has performed with the International Contemporary Ensemble, Talea, Copland House, and wildUp, and is co-artistic director of the experimental performance ensembles: thingNY, New Thread Saxophone Quartet, Hypercube, and Popebama."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"A debut solo album from saxophonist Erin Rogers, Dawntreader invites the listener on a wave-breaking journey, weaving lyrical stories with an unconventional voice.

Expressive, freely improvised, and acoustic, Dawntreader comprises three distinct works, each of which explores and develops a singular idea over time. Featuring soprano and tenor saxophones, and with extensive use of harmonics, multiphonics, vocalization, dynamics, and the inciting of outer resonance, Rogers builds plural lines and textures through the instrument, shaping, breaking, expanding and contracting the undressed tone."-Relative Pitch
