XTREME NOW: SPEED ART, EXTREME SPORTS, AND THE SUBLIME  BY TARAKA LARSON

XTREME NOW: SPEED ART, EXTREME SPORTS, AND THE SUBLIME 
BY TARAKA LARSON

Though Taraka Larson is most known as one half of the ecstatic sister duo and pop band Prince Rama, she is also a metaphysical music writer, and XTREME NOW: SPEED ART, EXTREME SPORTS, AND THE SUBLIME is her third manifesto. In Larson's introductory manifesto THE NOW AGE: MEDITATIONS ON SOUND AND THE ARCHITECTURE OF UTOPIA she outlined cosmic patterns in both the immaterial and the material aspects of music and performance. Her second manifesto APOCALYPSE NOW: POP MUSIC AND THE END OF THE WORLD (Perfect Wave 2014) focused on the cyclical nature of time in relation to the regeneration and decay of pop music through the ages. In this, her latest manifesto, Larson pushes these ideas further exploring life as a continuous daring act of performance art, examining the phenomenon of extreme sports through the macro lens of history. In the Xtreme Now time once again all boils down to NOW— "EMBRACING DEATH IS THE ONLY TRUE WAY TO LIVE FOREVER."
