The 2016 edition of Roulette’s Festival of Mixology, running from Tuesday, February 16, to Saturday, February 20, 2016, explores the history and tradition of electronics as it influences contemporary performance.

Over five days and featuring nine artists and their collaborators, the Festival illustrates the potency of invention and re-invention that has fueled experimentation and imagination for a century. Concerts feature masters in the art of of Theremin, synthesizer, sampling, glitch, appropriation, film and video interface, analog processing, circuit bending, and DJ technology.

Curated by David Weinstein, the co-founder of Roulette and producer of the first Festival of Mixology over 25 years ago, the series celebrates resurrected, restored, and recovered machinery, vintage recordings, and principles of electronic sound and image stretched to impact new and adventurous work.

ABOUT ROULETTE
In 1978 three young composers, Jim Staley, David Weinstein and Dan Senn, founded Roulette Intermedium and began to present concerts of music, dance and intermedia art in a Tribeca loft. Weinstein had written a piece, Café Roulette, an homage to Dada and to chance operations in music. Perhaps the three artists had some premonition that an organization dedicated to experimental art was a gamble, that the odds of its survival were long. But they invoked the hazards of chance the element of risk, and thirty-four years later, their bet is still paying off.
