Tropism by definition is the turning of all or part of an organism in a particular direction in response to an external stimulus. Tropism is also a psychedelic music trip created by the upstate New York duo, Troposphere.

Troposhere is a two man team of musical geniuses that create sounds and magic in the woods, specifically for tripping on drugs. That’s the best sentence I’ve ever written.

Tropism is a collective of original sounds from makers with hip hop, funk, and bluegrass backgrounds. The sometimes New Orleans brass band, other times Yeezus musical mashup is a reminiscent journey through the mind of a mushroom’d savant. Tropism is also featured in the film, A Mickey in the Tasting of Disaster, which delves into the world that is imagined when a person is exposed to psychedelics.

IF YOU ARE AFRAID TO DO DRUGS, BUT WANT TO EXPERIENCE DRUGS, WATCH A MICKEY IN THE TASTING OF DISASTER.

After the first 3 minutes I was hooked. The seamless composition married with clever transitions and awesome editing creates a space of freedom. This film is eye-open meditation that dazes you with vibrance and wonder for 43 minutes. It is an honest and beautiful project that takes found visuals and blends, distorts, overlays, and manipulates them until a holistic experience is birthed. The visuals force your eyes to widen as if magic mushrooms are seeping into your bloodstream and you suddenly start questioning if Santa has been on shrooms this entire time.Screen Shot 2015-09-21 at 6.48.00 AM

Best times to listen to Tropism:

  1. Work sessions
  2. Brunch parties
  3. While laying in bed with bae
  4. When doing drugs
  5. All of the time

Best times to watch a Mickey in the Tasting of Disaster:

  1. When you’re high
  2. When you’re sad
  3. When you’re happy
  4. Projected at a function
  5. All of the time

The point of all of this is to say this: Tropism is a very important project. A Mickey in the Tasting of Disaster is a very important project. The accumulation of imagery that couples perfectly with the esoteric audio-child of Terence McKenna will transform you. You will find yourself in a state of awe and not want to leave. This project may be drugs itself. Experience it.
