Roulette TV is a collection of video programs that captures the creative process of live performance, allowing viewers to experience Roulette’s distinctive programming from the comfort of their media screens.
Over the last thirteen years, Roulette TV has produced over 90 episodes that are broadcast weekly on Manhattan and Brooklyn cable networks, and are distributed over the Internet through Roulette’s website, Vimeo and YouTube channels.
Featuring clips from Roulette performances, Roulette TV integrates interviews with the artists, illuminate their compositional influences, techniques and intentions. The Roulette TV collection includes many luminaries of the avant-garde as well as artists of the next generation, including such as Ben Greenberg, Mary Halvorson, Darius Jones, Tyshawn Sorey, Cassie Tunick, and C. Spencer Yeh.
Much of the work presented at Roulette is visually absorbing. The on-site audience has the opportunity to see how the sounds are made, how the movement is constructed, how the different forms of media interact. Roulette TV offers this experience to a world-wide audience — interviews with the artists add a new dimension to the audience’s appreciation of the artists’ enterprise and achievement.
