lifeless air become sinewed for solo bassoon is part of a cycle of pieces for wind instruments composed for the Slovene wind quintet Slowind. It was premiered by bassoonist Paolo Calligaris at the 2010 Slowind Festival in Ljubljana in a concert of the entire cycle.
Fragments of sound conceived as timbral cells gradually grow and expand over a background of the sound of the instrumentalist breathing through the instrument in various ways. The process of growth of timbral material is punctuated by a layer of more active gestures.
