Live At Issue Project Room is the first recording of the expanded configuration of Catherine Christer Hennix's Chora(s)san Time-Court Mirage just-intonation ensemble, documenting a 2014 performance at Issue Project Room. The ensemble of Hennix (voice) and Hilary Jeffery and Robin Hayward (brass) is expanded to include vocalists Imam Ahmet Muhsin Tuzer, Amir Elsaffan, and Amirtha Kidambi; brass players Paul Schwingenschlogl and Elena Kakaliagou; and Marcus Pal and Stefan Tiedje on electronics. Live At Issue Project Room is packaged in a deluxe letter pressed sleeve. She has created a sound that reliably taps into our subconscious and frees us from linear time -The Quietus. Catherine Christer Hennix (born 1948 in Stockholm) is an artist, poet, composer, and philosopher with a strong interest in logic and formal music theory. In late-1960s Sweden, she was a pioneer of experimenting with mainframe computer-generated composite sound wave forms, and in the 1970s she was a key protagonist of the Downtown School along with La Monte Young and Henry Flynt, with whom she has collaborated on numerous occasions. She pursued studies with master vocalist Pandit Pran Nath and led the just-intonation live electronic ensembles Hilbert Hotel and The Deontic Miracle. Hennix's interest in drone music and the meditative, trance-like state it induces is apparent in her exploration of similar music in many other cultures and traditions, including, for example, Japanese gagaku music and the 13th-century vocal music of Perotin and Leonin. In 2003 she returned to computer-generated composite soundwave forms or soliton(e)s, of which Infinitary Composite Sound Wave Form Composition Soliton(e) Star (2003-present) was the first result. She subsequently formed the Choras(s)an Time-Court Mirage just-intonation ensemble; in 2012, Important Records released a performance by this ensemble of Blues Dhikr Al-Salam (Blues Al Maqam) as Live At The Grimm Museum Volume One (IMPREC 354CD). In 2012 Henry Flynt asked Hennix for a new, expanded realization of an Illuminatory Sound Environment for an installation at the ZKM in Karlsruhe, Germany, for his Henry Flynt. Activities 1959 - exhibition. In response Hennix realized a four-channel composition, Rag Infinity/Rag Cosmosis, her first four-channel computer-assisted composition since 1969.
