Breath, Jungyoon Wie
for saxophone quartet

Often, I imagine my music coming from nature – mountain, trees, birds, and the ocean. If there was a mother to this piece Breath, it would be the land, water, and their life-giving vibrations. Each gesture symbolizes a breath and the entire piece is made up of a series of breaths, those by humans, animals, insects, birds, the land, and water alike. Each gesture starts from silence and builds in dynamics, eventually returning to the stillness again. As no breath is the same, each gesture has its own sound, timbre, and meaning that is different from the others. Each breath brings another life, and so the piece keeps going.
