Artist-in-Residence: Prince Rama
On 11/11/11, for their third and final installment of their artist residency, Prince Rama will herald in the end of the world byway of karaoke. Using the number one hit singles corresponding with the dates of eleven different predicted "apocalypses" such as Heavens Gate, Jonestown, and Y2K, they will "chop and screw" the songs to a point beyond recognition and invite anyone who wishes to participate to perform the resulting pieces.

The word Apocalypse literally translates to mean "revelation" or"lifting the veil". At times the songs seem to directly reveal a fear of collective destruction (such as Britney Spears, "Til The World Ends" or Zager and Evans, "In the Year 2525"). Other times they contain messages of hope or survival (like Faith Hill, "Breathe" orThe Bee Gees, "Stayin' Alive"). UTOPIA = NO TIME seeks to "lift the veil" on the ways in which the end of time is embalmed in pop music,and how the act of karaoke serves as a channel to resurrect and assure the eternal recurrence of apocalypse through pop.
