Breathe was commissioned by Irish flautist Bill Dowdall and features the sounds of him performing on both bass and sliding headjoint flutes. The other sonorities are vocalisms made by a young Italian visual artist, Alice Grassi, I met while we were both Associate Artists at the Atlantic Centre for the Arts in Florida in 2010. I was taken with her lilting voice and made many recordings. Breathe is an amalgam of breath, voice and flute sounds in a sensuous and suggestive interplay. It is included on the Atoll CD Breathe, new notes for flute from Ireland & New Zealand (ACD 111).
