Artists

Prince Rama

It’s 2012, and Prince Rama has made the Top Ten Hits of the End of the World. Conceived as a pseudo-compilation album, the Brooklyn duo invented ten different pop bands that died during the apocalypse, channeling the ghosts of each one to perform the various songs. Spanning genres and stylistic eras from across the globe, Top Ten Hits explores pop music’s relationship to memory, nostalgia, and the spirit world. Incorporating influences as disparate as cosmic disco, motorcycle rock, new-wave, grunge, tribal goth, Arabic pop, and ghost-modern glam, Prince Rama filters each sound through the destroyed lens of a post-apocalyptic future looking back at the wonders of its sonic past.

Tracking began with Tim Koh in Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti’s studio and was then completed and mixed with producer Scott Colburn (Animal Collective, Sun City Girls, Arcade Fire) at Gravelvoice in Seattle. Top Ten Hits of the End of the World isn’t just a pop album, it’s a retrospective requiem of all pop albums ever made. Nothing like this has ever been attempted by a single band, and its residual echoes will continue to haunt this world and the next.

His involvement in the arts has run the gamut of medium and approach for the past 20 years.

His musical accomplishments are varied, having worked on several collaborations with other artists such as Harmony Korine, Rita Ackerman, and Doug Aitken, and most notably as the founding member of the experimental electronic group Gang Gang Dance.

In August of 2012, Brian participated in Ford Fusion’s collaboration with MILK Studios, revealing “Wall to Wall: The Fusion Collective” – a new project including an immersive gallery experience featuring original multimedia artworks and performances – which opened in New York and then traveled to Los Angeles. – via Rassamontaser.com

Eric Copeland

Eric Copeland is in the experimental noise band BLACK DICE. His record “Hermaphrodite” is a solo record comprised of samples, field recordings, vocal loops and drums that transform your brain from mellow to engaged to confused to greatly pleased. Tribal rhythms and noises that get you feeling slightly stoned, in a good way. CD version released on paw tracks. Eric is a super nice guy who is always pushing sounds in BD and on his own and “Hermaphrodite” is a testament to his ever pressing need to push audio boundries. – via Post Present Medium
