E.S.P. TV is an organization dedicated to promoting the performing and media based arts.

E.S.P. TV utilizes a mobile analog television studio to present a nomadic showcase of experimental music, video art and performance. We run a multi faceted organization that acts as a live studio broadcast, a program on public access, as well as a theatrical performance. All events are taped live with a crew of cameramen, sound engineer, and video mixing team using analog broadcast based media. Tapings of E.S.P. TV are in front of an audience with live green-screening, signal manipulation and video mixing. The show is then edited and produced for Manhattan Neighborhood Network public television (MNN), to be aired every Tuesday night at 10PM. After airing, the episodes are posted online at www.esptvnyc.com for later viewing. Our core mission is to preserve public broadcast, as well as showcase the ongoing use and ability of analog media in a digitally run world.

E.S.P. TV works internationally, working with smaller run venues as well as larger museum institutions. Our goal is to track down and showcase the pulse of artistic activity, creative innovation, and action in each location we visit.

E.S.P. TV has worked with various venues including: Museum of Arts and Design, Printed Matter, Millennium Film Workshop as a part of INDEX Festival, Clemente Soto Velez Center (NYC); Interstate Projects, Present Company, The Schoolhouse, La Sala, 285 Kent, Vaudeville Park, Spectacle Theater, Roulette (Brooklyn, NY), Franklin Street Works (Stamford, CT), Liminal Space (Oakland), Queens Nails Projects (San Francisco), General Public (Berlin) and Pallas Projects (Dublin).

Live sets by:
Bill Etra (live visuals) with James Herring (sound)
Nicolas Maigret (live visuals and sound)
Katherine Liberovskaya and Ursula Scherrer (live visuals) with Michelle Nagai and Kenta Nagai (sound)


OptoSonic Tea is a regular series of meetings dedicated to the convergence of live visuals with live sound which focuses on the visual component. These presentation-and-discussion meetings aim to explore different forms of live visuals (live video, live film, live slide projection and their variations and combinations) and the different ways they can come into interaction with live audio. Each evening features two different live visual artists or groups of artists who each perform a set with the live sound artists of their choice. The presentations are followed by an informal discussion about the artists' practices over a cup of green tea. A third artist, from previous generations of visualists or related fields, is invited specifically to participate in this discussion so as to create a dialogue between current and past practices and provide different perspectives on the present and the future.
