    In traditional Tibetan medicine, pulse reading is a complex form of diagnosis which requires physicians to listen deeply to the sound waves and vibrations of one’s heartbeat. In collaboration with Warper Party, The Rubin Museum presents a museum-wide multi-media event – PULSE – which invites electronic musicians and video artists to listen deeply and explore their own beats through inspiration from the new exhibition, Bodies in Balance: The Art of Tibetan Medicine. 

    Free museum admission and live electronic music performances throughout the evening from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. in K2 Lounge and the Spiral Lobby with Friendly Knowledge, Atom and Honeychild Coleman with video art by Sofy Yuditskaya.

    Ticketed multi-media concerts in the theater ($15 for one concert / $25 for both concerts) with musical performances by Comandante Zero, Charcole Federation, The Mast, and DJ Shakey and video art by 0h10m1ke, Permian Strata and The Sperm Whale.

    About the Performers

    Comandante Zero (CØ) is a digital electro-funk music/art collective from Brooklyn, NY (USA) consisting of bassist/producer Dan Freeman (CØm1x), drummer Jibrail Nor and visual artist Michael O’Leary (Øh1ØM1ke). Formed in 2008, they have created a cutting edge multimedia show that melds the latest digital music and art technology with live instruments. They have performed extensively in New York City, LA, London, Berlin and Latin America, including such prestigious festivals/venues such as the Brooklyn Museum (NY), The Brooklyn Academy Of Music (NY), CMJ (New York) Berghain (Berlin) and the House Of Blues (LA). They have also given lectures/demonstrations on integrating live and digital instruments at universities and festivals such as Harvard University (US), the Universidad De Caldas (Colombia) and the University of Santiago (Chile). Their last record (Slouching Towards Babylon, Part 1) was produced and mixed by Grammy-award winning producer/engineer Bob Power.



    Charcole Federation is the midnight living room project of Paul Feder (beats, synth), Nicole Merritt (vocals), and Nishanth Chari (sitar, guitar, bass) exploring the space where electronics, instrumental improvisation, and vocals meet.

    Permian Strata is a video performer. He moved to Brooklyn from Pittsburgh in 2010 and has since provided live video accompaniment for bands and artists such as Hannibal Montana, Argotec, oddlogic, and Color War. In addition, his work has been featured at Warper and Bass Oasis parties and the Uphoria 2012 festival.

    Happy Hour runs from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. with a 2-for-1 special on all beer, wine and well drinks at K2 Lounge.
