As part of Jung Hee Choi’s mesmerizing solo exhibition, Ahata Anahata, Manifest Unmanifest XI, three live performances of Tonecycle for Blues Base 30 Hz, 2:3:7 Ensemble Version with 4:3 and 7:6 will be performed by her Sundara All-Star Band. The three legendary vocalists—La Monte Young, Marian Zazeela, and Jung Hee Choi—and two virtuoso just intonation fretless guitar and bass – Jon Catler and Hansford Rowe - will improvise harmonically related frequency ratios over Choi’s new composition, Tonecycle for Blues accompanied by highly acclaimed tabla master, Naren Budhkar. This concert series will be presented in celebration of La Monte’s 82nd birthday and the half cycle of Marian’s 77th birthday.

While traversing the common ground of improvisational phrases rooted in Indian raga, American blues techniques, Korean traditional folk ballads and musical Minimalism, this work creates a highly original sound that is based on intervals in just intonation. Over the seventy-seven continuously revolving sine-wave frequencies, six channels of vocal overlays will be set in ratios based on the harmonics 2, 3, and 7. The relationship of the improvisations to the continuous drone elaborates the musical meaning of the pitch, creating a harmonious construct and inviting the listener into a deeply contemplative world.
