Studio Visit: Phill Niblock
A profile of experimental composer Phill Niblock, who details his personal history with music.
Roulette Intermedium was founded in 1978 at the height of the Downtown Experimental Arts revolution by four graduates from the University of Illinois (Urbana). The informal concerts they presented in TriBeCa soon attracted an audience and critical attention. Over the next three decades, Roulette gained a worldwide reputation as a center for musical innovation.
In 2011, Roulette opened a new chapter in its history when it moved into the 1928 Memorial Hall in the Downtown Brooklyn. The new 400-seat theater allows them to expand presentations along with their services to artists and the community. Each season, Roulette now presents more than 100 music, dance, and intermedia performances, with annual attendance exceeding 60,000.
Roulette's programming has expanded globally through Roulette’s online and television broadcast programs where audiences can explore the treasures of their archives. Artists can’t thrive without committed, thoughtful organizations on their side, and Roulette can’t thrive without caring, generous individuals who support the organization through a variety of different membership levels.
