Karlton Hester’s expressive works engage in themes of creative freedom, Pythagorean theorems, string theory, the legacies and poly-mathematical work of trumpeter Donald Byrd, as well as an exploration of the philosophical/creative thought of the legendary progenitor of the Afrofuturist perspective, Sun Ra. Alongside these, works by Hwayoung Shon and Byungki Hwang drawing from traditional Korean music start a dialog with Hester’s work that leads to the transcontinental collaboration of Miseon Jeong’s Fusion Soul, which dramatizes the fusion of jazz and traditional Korean music into one soul.
