As part of Experimental Sound Studio’s Quarantine Concerts, Roulette TV presents an evening of classic episodes from our archives, honoring five seminal artists – Pauline Oliveros, Robert Ashley, Jerome Cooper, Billy Bang, and Davey Williams. Each episode features a performance followed by an exclusive interview with the artist on their process and work. Both a historical document and a transformative testament to the power of experimental art, these episodes highlight the vitality of each artist and the ongoing importance of their work.

WATCH THE LIVE STREAM STARTING AT 7:30 ET


Launched in 1999, Roulette TV has produced over 115 episodes – broadcast weekly on Manhattan and Brooklyn cable networks and distributed through Roulette’s website, and Vimeo channel. The Roulette TV archive includes many avant-garde luminaries from Roulette’s rich history, such as Sun Ra, David Behrman, Zeena Parkins, Ikue Mori, William Parker, Sally Silvers, and many more. It also features many emerging artists as they grow their career and audience, including Ben Greenberg, Mary Halvorson, Darius Jones, Tyshawn Sorey, Cassie Tunick, Lesley Flanigan, and C. Spencer Yeh.

Experimental Sound Studio’s The Quarantine Concerts are a collaborative multi-city endeavor meant to provide artists in our community a space to share their work and continue to earn a living during this time when most live performance opportunities have been cancelled due to COVID-19. By centralizing streaming efforts, we hope to drive larger audiences to the artists performing, with the aim of helping them earn more money in the process.
