Mixology Festival 2019: Michele Mercure - Roulette
February 22, 2019 - Brooklyn

Roulette, with RVNG Intl. and Freedom To Spend, is proud to present minimal synthesist and experimental composer Michele Mercure's debut live performance in New York City. Following the 2017 reissue of her 1986 album, Eye Chant, Mercure celebrates the release of Beside Herself, a collection of her self-produced and distributed cassettes from 1983 and 1990 now reissued on Freedom to Spend. The album charts Mercure's early experiments with sampling and synthesis, drawing influences from kosmiche and experimental German musician Conrad Schnitzler, and restores the canon of the composer's arresting dream-music, revisiting her breakthrough material. For the first time in 30 years, Mercure will perform live.
