MELA is pleased to present three live performances of Jung Hee Choi’s Tonecycle for Blues Base 30 Hz, 2:3:7 Ensemble Version with 4:3 and 7:6. Her Sundara All-Star Band will perform again this extraordinary piece, which was listed as one of The Best Classical Music Performances of 2017 by The New York Times. The three legendary vocalists—La Monte Young, Marian Zazeela, and Jung Hee Choi—and the virtuoso just intonation fretless guitar and bass – Jon Catler and Hansford Rowe - will improvise harmonically related frequency ratios over Choi’s composition, Tonecycle for Blues accompanied by highly acclaimed tabla master, Naren Budhkar. This concert series will be presented in celebration of La Monte’s 83rd birthday and the 180-degree half cycle of Marian’s 78th 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.
