Notes from the composer:

In May 2016 my wife gave birth to our son. Within a minute of his delivery, our room was flooded with nurses who were busily working and eerily quiet. I was concerned as he had not let out a single cry and it was diff icult to tell if he was breathing. He was given a breathing mask and quickly brought to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Aft er five long days in the NICU, his breathing had improved and he was finally ready to come home. Breathe is my attempt to capture the myriad of emotions my wife and I experienced during our son’s first week of life.
