The Rubin One Ring Zero
Om Mani Padme Hum! One Ring Zero premieres a score to accompany the sequential projection of the comic book, Green Lama #1, panel by exciting panel!
Wealthy heir Jethro Dumont, who spends ten years in Tibet learning its mysteries, returns to New York City to implement Buddhist precepts, but realizes he can achieve more by fighting crime instead. The Green Lama originated as a pulp fiction character of the early 1940s, became one of the Golden Age of comic book heroes, and then continued as a radio drama on CBS.
One Ring Zero is led by Michael Hearst and Joshua Camp. The band has released eight albums, including As Smart As We Are: The Author Project, featuring lyrics by Paul Auster, Margaret Atwood, Dave Eggers, and Neil Gaiman, among others; Planets, a collection of new compositions that represent the solar system and beyond; and their most recent, The Recipe Project, in which the band has taken recipes from today's top chefs (Mario Batali, Tom Colicchio, David Chang, etc.), set them to music, and sung them word for word. One Ring Zero has performed at music venues and cultural institutions including the Whitney Museum of Art, Central Park Summer Stage, The Kennedy Center, Toronto's Harbourfront Centre, Spring Scream in Taiwan, Era in Tokyo, New Morning in Paris, The Chicago World Music Festival, and the Fundacion Principe de Asturia in Spain. The band's music has been featured in dance concerts, films, television, animations, fashion shows, and NPR programming including This American Life, Fresh Air, and Morning Edition.
