Interview with Matana Roberts

From New York’s Roulette:

On Thursday, June 18th at 8:30pm, Matana Roberts presents ILLUMINATION, a collection of sound paintings that testify to why any artist would chose to live in New York in the first place. A city unlike any other, with an artistic spirit unlike any other. An Illumination in sound, space, real time. A testament to the tenacity of the creative human spirit.
