Release Date:09/02/2014;Notes:Import 2 x LP pressing. Arcade Fire member Richard Reed Parry debut solo album. Titled Music for Heart and Breath, the album features performances that are played in sync with the musicians' own breathing and heartbeat, according to Parry's website. The album features Nico Muhly, Bryce Dessner and Aaron Dessner of the National, as well as the Kronos Quartet. Parry describes the concept behind the recordings a slow process of creating a new way of playing music... Here is what it is: 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. Brought to musical life by a handful of different ensembles. And now, at last, recorded in full, and coming out on Deutsche Grammophon in a few weeks from now... It has been a joy to create this work, and even more of a joy to have it brought to life by such a fantastic cast of musical minds. 2014.;Track List:1. Quartet for Heart and Breath - Nadia Sirota;2.
