Roulette TV

New Release  |  Full RTV Episodes  |  Studio Visits  |  Livestreams

Roulette TV captures the creative process of live performance, giving viewers a unique window into Roulette’s distinctive programming through in-depth artist-driven features including studio visits, performance footage, and interviews.

Launched in 1999, Roulette TV has produced over 112 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 Pauline Oliveros, Jerome Cooper, Robert Ashley, Sun Ra, David Behrman. 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.

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 worldwide audience – interviews with the artists add a new dimension to the audience’s appreciation of the artists’ enterprise and achievement.

Roulette TV also airs on Brooklyn Free Speech the first Tuesday of the month at 6:30pm. Find your channel and tune in:
Spectrum (formerly Time Warner): 79 & 1998
Optimum (formerly Cablevision): 68
Verizon FiOS: 43, RCN8 

New Release

Our most recent RTV episode documents composer and vocalist Anaïs Maviel’s year-long Van Lier fellowship at Roulette. Maviel presented two performances in 2018, the first being Who is this Ritual for and from? in February. A collaboration with choreographer Daria Faïn, the performative ritual established a throughline between loneliness and relation, body, time and space, self and tools and machines. The night transitioned into a duo set with pianist Sam Yulsman.

In July, Maviel presented Time is Due—a musical drama designed for a multitude of textures performed by a large electro-acoustic ensemble.
