September 7 and 14, 2013 at 9 PM

MELA Foundation Dream House

275 Church Street, New York, NY

In the transcendent setting of Jung Hee Choi’s exhibition Ahata Anahata, Manifest Unmanifest VII, MELA Foundation is presenting two live concert performances of her composition, Tonecycle Base 30 Hz, 2:3:7 Vocal Version, with La Monte Young, Marian Zazeela and Jung Hee Choi, voices, and sine wave frequencies, on Saturday evenings, September 7 and 14 at 9 pm in the MELA Dream House. The three vocalists improvise over the implied tonic that changes imperceptibly throughout the performance of the composition. The relationship of their improvisations to the drone continuously elaborates the musical meaning of the pitch, creating a compelling, harmonious construct that draws the listener into a profoundly contemplative world.
