In this collage work, I’m trying to deliver a guided meditation that would evoke people’s attention to their everyday breathing. The preparation phase would introduce the listeners into the world of breaths by presenting breath types and trying to form a language with breath, and then move on to a vocal guided meditation.
- Breathing sound
- Muyu sound – “In Buddhism, it is struck during chants of Buddha’s name” – also to add in a rhythmic element
- Synth – mimic breathing; low drone to broaden the frequency range
I’m using breaths here not just as a sound source but also a control element which have the sound textures change along with the breath such as the pitch of the synth breath and the overall effect depth.
