Roulette IntermediumBrooklyn, NY
Conceived in Chicago and established in a Tribeca loft in 1978 at the height of the Downtown experimental arts revolution, Roulette is one of the few surviving organizations to maintain its identity as an Artists’ Space and its commitment to bringing the experimental performing arts to a wider public. Roulette’s mission is to support artists creating new and adventurous art in all disciplines by providing them with a venue and resources to realize their creative visions and to build an audience interested in the evolution of experimental art. Its history of performances (preserved in the Roulette Archive—a comprehensive collection of more than 3,000 concert listings with historic audio, video, limited-edition concert posters, publications, press, and ephemera), leaves a detailed and distinguished record of four decades of artistic development, experimentation, and achievement.

Roulette TV: Gabrielle Herbst // Ashes
Roulette TV visits composer and vocalist Gabrielle Herbst in her studio to discuss her 2018 residency work: the premiere of her opera “Ashes.” Written for two voices and two loop pedals, electronics, harp, violin, cello, flute, piano and clarinet, the opera explores themes of personal and collective vulnerability. Progressing through sensory, dreamlike, non-narrative tableaux with close harmonization, textural rhythms, melismatic vocals, and electronics, the opera takes an immersive look at an inner world struggling to connect outwards.
