Brooklyn, NY: Roulette presents ImproTech Paris/New York, an evening of improvisation and technology bringing together an impressive collection of composers, performers and researchers who specialize in the use of technology for musical improvisation hailing from both Paris and New York. The evening’s events are the kick off to several conferences and workshops at NYU and Columbia University that will run May 17th - 19th.
Roulette – one of New York City’s premiere venues for experimental music for over 33 years - has reopened bigger and better than ever. Located in a newly renovated 1920s Art Deco concert hall in Downtown Brooklyn, the new Roulette features two levels of seating for up to 400 people (600 standing), an expanded multi-channel sound system, projection screen for film and multi-media events, state-of-the-art lighting system, modular stage, and a specially designed floor to accommodate dance. Teamed with bold new programming, the new Roulette promises to be one of the most exciting places in New York City - if not the country - to experience adventurous music and art.
