Jimi Maffei - Breaths (2013)

A composition written for large wind enseble, for my final portolio whilst studying at Sussex University. The primarily uses harmonies borrowed from Messiaen’s piano epic Vingt Regards Sur L’enfant-Jésus. The overall idea is one of stretching out Messiaen’s original harmonies and themes in a breath-like manner, with the intention of distorting them beyond recognition at points, and having the original lines sing out at others.
