immer tiefer, immer ruhiger [becoming deeper, becoming calmer] is a exploration of the idea of the human breath as a basis for a musical gesture. The work, to me, is depictive of a series of breaths that leads one deeper into focused concentration. As one descends into contemplation, extraneous thoughts separate from consciousness and ‘fall away’.
