PRINCE RAMA Spawned from the vernal heat of the Florida swamps amidst swirling patterns of pine orchards and pre-Columbian artifacts, Prince Rama was whispered into the ears of Taraka Larson, Nimai Larson, and Michael Collins in the summer of 2007 by the clanging of prayer bells and goat-skin drums. They left the Hare Krishna farm where they were staying to go to art school and form a creative nucleus in Boston. There, their engaging and often unpredictable ritualistic live shows attracted a rapid cult following, replete with collective chants, werewolf summonings, Sanskrit invocations, and the distribution of various handmade percussion to members of the audience. Prince Rama were ISSUE Project Room Artists-in-Residence in 2011. BEN VIDA (2013 Artist-in-Residence) Ben Vida is a composer, improviser and sound artist living and working in Brooklyn, New York. Utilizing analog and digital synthesizing technologies, Vida's compositions focus on aural phenomena and sound localization. Vida co-founded the group Town and Country, produced three records of world musique concrete under the name Bird Show and plays in the band Soft Circle.
