Breathing, and subsequently breath, is ever-present in life and in music. Our breathing changes depending on the activity we are doing or our state of mind. The length of the inhale and the exhale change the speed of breathing. The length of the breath is further prolonged or shortened by the amount of time we hold our breath. Eolicamente explores the idea of breath and its different variants.

 

The three sections of Eolicamente portray three long, calm breaths. Within each section, there are shorter breath that are calm, energetic or even held. Due to its close relationship with breath, the flute portrays the idea of breath more literally than the percussion, which explores the rhythmic implications of the different types of breath.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
