Tropical Year Zero
Church of St. Luke & St. Matthew (520 Clinton Ave., Brooklyn)
Artist and musician Sergei Tcherepnin constructs temporary architectural interventions that push phenomena of the sonorous towards the haptic. Through performance, composition, and installation, he explores the materiality of sound and its physical and psychological effects on the listener. For the final installment of his residency at ISSUE Project Room, Tcherepnin and artist Lucy Dodd present Tropical Year Zero, a sonic dramaturgy marking the end of the Mayan k’atun cycles.
the night of b’ak’tun 13
on the surface of Nibiru we will massage the planet with our feet
welcome to the age of aquarius with a peace treaty for the new era
come feel the tickle of the serpents’ sonic tongues in your rear
