Richard Reed Parry’s Music for Heart and Breath

The album also features performances by Bryce and Aaron Dessner, Nico Muhly, yMusic, and others. Learn more and pre-order Music for Heart and Breath from Amazon and iTunes.

The concept behind Music for Heart and Breath is that every musician involved in the piece generates their own tempo by listening to their pulse during the performance.

Parry describes it as “a slow process of creating a new way of playing music. Very soft, very quiet music, played utterly in synch with the heart rates and breathing rates of the musicians performing it. Every note you hear is either in synch with the heartbeat of the person playing it, the breathing of the person (or one of the surrounding persons) playing it. So what you hear when this music plays is played precisely in time with someone’s quiet, internal rhythms.”
