I'm Listening To

Erin Rogers

New York, NY         

Based in New York City, Erin Rogers is a composer, saxophonist, and performance artist dedicated to new and experimental music. Her works explore the intersection of chamber music and theatre, using human elements such as vocals, improvisation, and performance practice to inform timbre, gesture, and dynamic, often moving between acoustic and electronic worlds.

Her works have been presented at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Roulette, Knockdown Center, and the Ecstatic Music Festival by ensembles such as mise-en, Loadbang, Versipel, Hypercube, Stony Brook Contemporary Players, thingNY, and Nief-Norf. Her work has crossed genres from-theatre-to-installation-to-silence, through collaborations with Orange Theatre, Panoply Performance Laboratory, Harvestworks, and Music for Contemplation. A featured soloist on the 2017 Prototype Festival’s Out-of-Bounds, her works have been performed on the French Quarter Festival (New Orleans), Continuum Music Festival (Memphis), Edmonton Fringe Festival, Circulo de Bellas Artes (Madrid), Guitars International Festival (CIM), Bowling Green New Music Festival, and mise-en Festival, with upcoming commissions from the 2018 MATA Festival and Alia Musica Pittsburgh. Erin has performed with the International Contemporary Ensemble, wild Up, and Copland House, recently debuting as a theatrical pianist in Paul Pinto‘s Thomas Paine in Violence produced by HERE Arts Center. Erin is co-artistic director of New York-based ensembles: thingNY, Hypercube, Popebama, and New Thread Quartet. www.erinmrogers.com
