Sentient Robots is an avant-garde cello duo of Ben Baker and Bri Tagliaferro. Having met as graduate students at the Boston Conservatory, Bri and Ben realized their mutual interest in performing, commissioning, and composing new and experimental music. Drawing influence from many different areas, Ben and Bri are also avid listeners and performers in other genres including rock, folk, and free improvisation, often incorporating these influences into their performances using electronics and effects pedals. At this concert, the bots will be performing works by Curtis Hughes, Gemma Peacocke, new works written for them by emerging Boston-based composers Christa Duggan, Avik Chari, and Philip Wright, and works that they composed!
