Welcome to Roulette at Home for the week of May 14. 
Dispatch: Simon Hanes

Roulette TV catches up with composer Simon Hanes, whose performance was originally scheduled for June, via video chat. Hanes talks about working virtually and finding new ways to make art that transfers the impression of proximity with collaborators that are apart.
Highlight: Pulitzer-winning Roulette Artist Anthony Davis

Seth Colter Walls of the New York Times speaks to Anthony Davis and reflects on his experience attending a Roulette performance of improvisations of Davis's Pulitzer award-winning opera, The Central Park Five. The article contains a recording of the performance, which he describes: "it is a joy to hear in this performance at Roulette how blissfully unencumbered Davis sounds when readapting his own music." 
In light of Davis's Pulitzer, this week's playlist celebrates composers who have presented, premiered, or developed the work at Roulette and have been honored with MacArthur, Pulitzer, Guggenheim, and other awards.

Dispatch: Muyassar Kurdi
