Myco-Cosmos

Fathomers and Los Angeles State Historic Park present
MYCO-COSMOS
an evening of music and mushrooms in space

with
Phil Ross
Paul Stamets
Laraaji
 
Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017
7 to 9 p.m.
 
Los Angeles State Historic Park
1245 N. Spring St.
 
Fathomers is pleased to announce “Myco-Cosmos,” a free outdoor public performance produced in collaboration with artist and mycologist Phil Ross, wherein mushroom expert and cultural visionary Paul Stamets leads a guided meditation on humanity’s fungal future within the universe, accompanied by a live soundscape from new age musical legend Laraaji.

The event — which is free and open to the public — takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017, at 
Los Angeles State Historic Park. ASL interpretation will be provided.

“Myco-Cosmos” is part of an ongoing research exploration between Fathomers and Ross into growing spacesuits and other astronautical provisions using fungal, mycelium-based materials.


“I believe that the elaborated visualizations possible with music and human movement are how knowledge of fungi has been transmitted among humans for most of our history,” says Ross, “and I see this talk/music/movement as an articulation of this customary practice.” 


Fathomers is a non-profit creative research institute dedicated to producing transformative sites and encounters at the intersections of science, technology and contemporary art.

ABOUT THE PRESENTERS
As an artist, Phil Ross has exhibited work at the Venice Biennale of Architecture, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Museum of Jurassic Technology; as a bioengineering scholar at Stanford University, he’s working to develop an internet of biological things. He’s also co-founder and CEO of MycoWorks, a start-up that turns mycelium (the threadlike, vegetative part of mushrooms) into building bricks and leather — where he’s poised to revolutionize the materials industry with bio-design.

Paul Stamets, D.Sc., is the author of six books, including Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World, Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World, and Growing Gourmet and Medicinal Mushrooms. He has received numerous awards, including the Mycological Society of America’s Gordon and Tina Wasson Award — for attracting more students to the field of mycology than anyone in history — and was named a 2014-2015 Invention Ambassador by the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His influence is also visible in pop culture: Starfleet astromycologist Lt. Paul Stamets (portrayed by actor Anthony Rapp) now appears in the 2017 Star Trek: Discovery series on CBS.

Laraaji Nadabrahmananda is a meditator, laugh-master and cosmic musician who has performed in Europe, Asia and in the United States with his specially designed electric zither. He also uses the African Mbire, piano, synthesizers, hand drums, percussions, Tibetan gong, and voice in his presentations. Early collaboration with producer Brian Eno led to Laraaji’s first internationally distributed recording, Ambient #3: Day of Radiance. He has performed and released albums consistently since the late 1970s.
