One element we are exploring in our residency is the potential impact of Pranayama, a range of yogic practices which focus on the ‘drawing out’ of the breath. We think that Pranayama may place us, as performers, in a very interesting bodily and mental space, which cannot help but inform our duo-improvisation. This was certainly the case today, with attention to harmonics, beating, difference tones and other acoustic and psycho-acoustic phenomena.
