Album Notes
Three Dancers is the debut release from composer Ryan Choi.  The album derives its title from Picasso’s painting, Les Trois Danseuses, and features three highly kinetic, dense and intensely focused works that seem to draw as much from literature and visual art as they do from musical tradition.  These recordings, featuring the baritone ukulele, percussion and electronics, were made by the composer after a six-year hiatus from music, though the concepts he explores in them were developed over the last fifteen years.  The pieces, often beginning as fragments, gradually evolve into cohesive, tonally centered (though not tonally based) wholes.

Ryan Choi, born in 1984 in Honolulu, Hawaii, is a composer, improviser, and multi-instrumentalist.  Classically trained on the double bass, he began studying composition and theory as a youth.  He plays the ukulele, percussion, and other string instruments.  He lives and works just outside of Downtown Honolulu.
