Programme Note:
Air is a collection of three short pieces which all share a common thread - the idea of air and breath. Each of the three pieces seeks out dialogues and narration focused on gesture. The piece features several aleatoric sections, including percussion solo in the first piece. Air was awarded 2nd prize in the Pierre Mercure Awards in the 2006 SOCAN Young Composers Competition.
