DM #532: It all starts with the breath.
My girl @venus2bfab dropped this bit of fire and I knew it had to be tonight’s DM. Breathing is the most fundamental movement pattern that we have, and as such everything else is built upon it, driven by it, affected by it.
But the relationship absolutely goes both ways. A more complex musical piece requires more work by the conductor. Similarly, the complexity of the movement will also dictate what the breath must do.
So, what’s the take home? Respect the breath. Appreciate the breath. Train the breath. Your movement depends on it. ?
