Everything One in the Disc of the Sun
Royal Osiris Karaoke Ensemble
Fri, Jan 30–Sat, Jan 31
Part of the Studio Series: works made for intimate spaces.
At the end of time, three Osirian priests gather at a pseudo-Egyptian karaoke bar to perform their favorite tracks from the self-help repertoire. They sing, chant, and recite forgotten hits from the VHS vaults of gurus, cult leaders, corporate speakers, and extraterrestrial mediums.
All under the cosmic glow of an LED pyramid.
Royal Osiris Karaoke Ensemble (ROKE) is a musical priesthood that explores the psychic terrain of self-help movements at the turn of the 20th century. Everything One in the Disc of the Sun features Tei Blow, Siobhan Gandy, and Sean McElroy.
Both performances will be followed by a Golden Karaoke Party.

“An environment wherein one’s critical frame got nudged, over and over again, between operating under two assumptions: that of arch irony, and that of flat-out sincerity.” –Culturebot
“We made karaoke videos for the songs using things from the contemporary world that we thought made sense with the subject matter, and then realized that we had created a mythology that we could easily inhabit.” –Tei Blow of Royal Osiris Karaoke Ensemble
