<p>We are constantly using breath as a means of connecting with one another in our playing – conscious breath plays a crucial role in the hours before a performance, in the moments before we play and of course during and afterwards too. By focussing in on an element that is as universal and as infinitely subtle as breath, inviting a guide from the audience into the quartet and opening ourselves to the possibility of being manipulated by this new force, we hope to forge a new type of connection between ourselves, our guide, each other and the audience.</p>
