To mark this strange and extraordinary year,all of six hours of music on December 21 will be a Roulette premiere. Niblock’sminimalistic drone approach to composition and music was inspired by themusical and artistic activities of New York in the 1960s, from the art of MarkRothko, Carl Andre, Sol LeWitt, Donald Judd, and Robert Morris to the music ofJohn Cage and Morton Feldman. Niblock’s music is an exploration of soundtextures created by multiple tones in very dense, often atonal tunings(generally microtonal in conception) performed in long durations.6Hours of Music and Film will be presented virtually and available for free on avariety of streaming platforms. Roulette’s theater is currently closed forpublic performances as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and the safetymeasures that Roulette has put in place to keep staff, artists, and the publicsafe.
