Produced by Roulette Intermedium.

A performance by composer/pianist ”Blue" Gene Tyranny whose tonal yet asymmetrical compositions have inspired and tantalized artists from John Cage to Iggy Pop. He is widely known for his substantial contributions to the ensemble works of Robert Ashley and has also worked with Carla Bley, Laurie Anderson, Peter Gordon, Leroy Jenkins, and many more including The Stooges. This recording is one of his rare solo concerts presented at Roulette’s original Tribeca loft on December 1, 2004 playing songs from his CD, Take Your Time. A bonus track, X Marks The Spot (Daydream), from his 1994 Lovely Music album, Country Boy Country Dog, closes out the program.

Tracking The Odds: The Roulette Concert Archive is a monthly hour-long radio special produced by Roulette Intermedium (roulette.org) and broadcast in partnership with Wave Farm’s WGXC 90.7-FM. The broadcasts feature selected highlights from Roulette’s New York experimental music space dating from the early 1980s to the present. Thousands of rare, formative, and often unheard recordings by innovators and adventurous musicians populate the archive. Tracking The Odds airs the third Thursday of each month at 1am and is archived at wavefarm.org.

Founded in 1978, Roulette operates a 400-seat concert hall on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn with a focus on experimental and unorthodox music and performance across all genres and media. It's archive of thousands of audio and video recordings is currently being restored.
