About the project

This project is produced and created by Akari Komura, who is a Japanese composer-vocalist, currently active in Ann Arbor, MI and Orange County, CA. Through our current unusual circumstance of the pandemic, Akari has been exploring ways to connect with people and create space for musicians to perform regardless of time and space synchronicity.


"Breath-stream"(2020) is a composition that centers around a nature element of air through linking human breath and wind current. Prior to playing the piece, each performer is instructed to find out the direction of which way the wind is blowing from at their geographical location using a website, "Earth Wind Map". After recognizing the wind, the score invites the performers to become aware of their individual breath rhythm at first, then to open out the attention to the wind, so the sound is entirely guided by the individual performer to express their internal experience. The collection of recordings has taken place in 13 different locations and times (as of 04/23/20). By creating this website as a platform of performance, Akari hopes to the project to carry on and build the relationships between people as well as with our nature environment through this sonical experience.
