System Of A Down Singer Serj Tankian’s “The Incandescent Pause” Exhibit Opens In Glendale, CA

System Of A Down singer Serj Tankian’s “The Incandescent Pause” exhibit has officially opened at Tufenkian Fine Arts in Glendale, CA. The audible and visual experience features selected works from the artist and fans will be able to check it out from July 2 through July 16. Tankian commented:

“The title of the exhibition serves as a visual reference to the involuntary social isolation experienced by our species recently. Nature has sent us to our rooms as we’ve failed in our vision as caretakers of the Earth. Time for a new way of co-existing, one that elevates the quality of all lives while lowering our lifestyle footprint. We can no longer afford to measure our value in economic growth. We must measure our value in the growth of our culture and happiness.”

System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian Releases 24-Minute Modern Classical Composition “Disarming Time: A Modern Piano Concerto”

Serj Tankian (System Of A Down) has released a new 24-minute modern classical composition called “Disarming Time: A Modern Piano Concerto.” You can find an official video for the musical piece below:

Tankian commented:

“When quarantine hit and all our projects and releases were cancelled, I started itching for a musical challenge. One night sitting in bed looking through different voice memos on the iPhone I realized I have this huge trove of short, special, unrealized musical ideas. Right then the thought of creating an epic piece utilizing them all made me smile. So I recorded them all and started arranging the instrumentation to create this incredibly unique musical experience. I mean, who the fuck listens to 24 minutes of music as one piece today? We’re about to find out :)”

A redux version of “Disarming Time: A Modern Piano Concerto” will also be featured as part of the frontman’s “Cool Gardens Poetry Suite” release. That effort will be available in about three weeks and the following was said about it in a press release:

“The release is a rich suite of four elegant cinematic works layered with intimate recital of prose from Tankian himself, taken from the pages of his first published book of poetry, ‘Cool Gardens.’ Tankian narrates 87 poems over the nearly 48 minutes of music, weaving his way through a bevy of topics ranging from humorous to sullen.

‘Cool Gardens Poetry Suite’ will also be accompanied with videos, this time at the hands of visual artist David Bradford, a previous collaborative partner on other Tankian projects. Bradford’s visuals quite literally animate pixelated paint onto digital canvas as viewers are caravanned across their screens via Tankian’s soundtrack and the gradual unveiling of his visual compliment.”
