III: Respire is a poly-temporal breath composition. Three breathers inhale and exhale in time with a personalised metronome to create precise, interlocking rhythmic textures. The score progresses from relaxation to hyperventilation to sustained holds, requiring intense physical exertion. Throughout, the heart rate of each performer is captured using an electrocardiogram, and rematerialised as haptic feedback pulsing through the ground beneath the audience.
