Richard Reed Parry recently spoke with Classicalite about several subjects, including his new DG album - Music For Heart And Breath. Inspired by electro-acoustic music as well as composers such as John Cage and Steve Reich, Parry directed performers to wear stethoscopes and sync tempos to their respiration.
