SCIENTIFIC because we seek answers and solutions. We strive towards proving the unprovable and disproving the proven.
SOUL because we believe in each self moving beyond its limits, reaching out to people, natural creatures and to the cosmos, imagining and doing the impossible!
Our Soul Sessions are more than just events; they are the integration of arts & politics. They are dynamic, inspiring & soul-changing experiences.
Warrior Fred Ho, Presenté
Fred Ho, matriarchalist warrior, revolutionary baritone saxophonist, composer, band leader, theorist, author, producer, teacher, and revered combat martial artist, made his journey to the spirit world in the morning of Saturday, April 12, 2014. He passed away peacefully in his Brooklyn home, surrounded by womyn warriors and an abundance of love. He is survived by his mother Frances Lu Houn, and sisters Flourence Houn and Flora Houn Hoffman.
Fred Ho was a creative visionary who innovated works of art – music, martial arts operas, manga-inspired comic books, revolutionary manifestos, handmade clothing and accessories – that merged revolutionary politics with a pioneering Afro –Asian arts and culture aesthetic. Ho created music and embodied the kind of revolutionary politics that one else could do or create. He was a theorist and strategist developing forward-thinking principles for building a new society based on values of matriarchy, ecosocialism, indigeneity, and marooning.
Fred Ho is an inspiration to musicians, composers, artists, scholars and revolutionaries everywhere, with friends and comrades all over the world.
There will be no funeral; Fred's ashes will be spread over the sea of Kauai, where he will swim forever with the coral reefs.
The NYC grand memorial tribute to Fred Ho was on October 4th, 2014 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) Cafe. Scientific Soul Sessions continues his artistic and political legacy. The Eco-Music Big Band continues his music.
