Prince Rama released Xtreme Now earlier this year, a crazy mix of sounds for the colorful duo. "Xtreme Now" is also a just-published manifesto by Prince Rama's Taraka Larson. Would you like to know more?
XTREME NOW is the latest bold new manifesto by Taraka Larson. It pushes Prince Rama's self-proclaimed philosophy of the Now Age further, exploring life as a continuous daring act of performance art, examining the phenomenon of extreme sports through the macro lens of history, as well as prophesying a future of "speed art" fusing extreme sports, time travel and the sublime experience. Part critical analysis, part science fiction, and part metaphysics, Xtreme Now outlines a future where energy drinks sponsor art museums and beauty is rated by speed, while simultaneously boiling time down to an eternal prismic state of presence - "A Now Age Book of the Dead."
Taraka will be presenting a lecture titled "Extreme Sports, Speed Art, & the Sublime" at NYU Kimmel Center on November 29 which will also feature a performance by Prince Rama. That show is free and open to the public.
Next month, Prince Rama will also play Pittsburgh's Andy Warhol Museum and a New Year's Eve show in Fort Worth, TX. Dates are listed, along with a stream of Xtreme Now, below.
