Program Notes
Inhabited by air invites both the listeners and musicians to connect with the subtle momentum of air behind each inhalation and exhalation. Emerging out of the breath, the piece journeys into invisible, transparent, and light qualities of air. How is your body wreathed in the air? How does air encircle your breaths? How does air inhabit your body? How does an exhale entwine with a breeze? This piece calls for an embodiment of the whirling energy of air enacted by the players’ breathing vocal bodies.
