Boustany, Wissam - And the wind whispered
'...And The Wind Whispered....' is deliberately written down in approximate notation. I give you some basic ideas, modes, melodies, sequences and atmospheres...but it is up to YOU to find your own thing, to establish your own flow and connection between the various episodes, creating a free, flowing and improvised feel for the piece. It will become clear that circular breathing is an important technique for the piece.... but if you don't circular breathe please do find a way to make it work, I would be most interested to hear your way of rising to the challenge of creating a piece that can inspire.
