Amit Pitaru is a musician and installation artist that utilizes traditional elements as well as software and electronics in his work. When performing on his software instruments, Amit utilizes simple and familiar gestures in order to introduce the audience to his unconventional compositions; in one piece he may visibly use a pen to simultaneously notate and produce his sounds, and in another he’ll play a custom-made Playstation game to progress through a scripted composition.

His work has been performed and exhibited in such places as the Paris Pompidou Center, Sundance Festival, Seoul metropolitan museum, ICC museum in Tokyo, and the NYC subway system.

For his show at roulette, Amit will perform on audio-visual instruments from the past ten years, as well as screen collaborative videos of work made with fellow artist James Paterson. Following the performance, the audience will be invited to experiment with the instruments on stage.
