      Richard Reed Parry: Quartet for Heart and Breath (6:48)

      Kronos Quartet

      ‘Music for Heart and Breath’ is Richard Reed Parry’s debut as a classical composer, inspired by the likes of Steve Reich and Brian Eno. Parry is well known for his work as a multi-instrumentalist with the Grammy-winning alternative rock band Arcade Fire. He draws his influences from classical music, folk and electronica. The concept behind ‘Heart and Breath’ is that every musician involved in the piece generates his own tempo by listening to his/her pulse during the performance. Fragile and intimate, these pieces reflect Parry’s philosophy that music and nature (in this case, the body) can be explicitly linked.
