Notes & Reviews:
'I Drink the Air I Breathe' is a ballet score written for the Stephen Petronio Dance Company's 25th anniversary. The New York Times commented, "The score, by Nico Muhly, evokes turbulent undercurrents in which the frantic sounds of flute and strings are woven with the more tumultuous notes of a trombone and piano. Without being literal, the music and choreography create a sonic, ephemeral wave." This fascinating CD was produced in collaboration with Bedroom Community, the Icelandic record label known for avant-garde and cutting edge classical/cross-genre projects.Notes & Reviews:
Recording information: Clinton Recording Studio, New York City.
Pitchfork (Website) - "Throughout, Muhly realizes some magical effects, like transforming string drones into a wilting melody on 'Varied Carols'."
