Peter Sheppard Skaerved-Nefes ‘Breath’

Ensemble Sodio e Asfalto. Mexico City 2004

Memory of ‘opening the composer’s workshop in Mexico City

Here is a piece which I wrote for a group of young composers and performers with whom I collaborated in Mexico City in 2004-2005. We had wind players, so worked on the cross over between bowing and breath, between speech and music. The piece was born in a project in Ankara; hence the Turkish title, ‘Breath’.

This was their idea…string players, be very afraid of your double and single reed colleagues!
