about

Flowing effortlessly from texted songs to Ayelet’s wordless compositions, where the voice is like another wind instrument, the quartet blends turbulent, contemporary electro-acoustic energies with gentler, klezmer-inspired gestures and jazz-infused improvisations, closing on a wistful note with François Houle’s lyrical arrangement of Tom Waits’ “The Last Rose of Summer.”

In "Who Has Seen the Wind?", Pneuma use poetry from a variety of places and times, from Christina Rossetti to James Joyce and from Iranian poet Forugh Farrokhzad to 9th century Japanese poet Izumi Shikibu. The music is deeply rooted in improvisation, with a contemporary-classical / chamber music feeling. The compositions are fully developed, and the cycle is working conceptually with a poetic theme: the wind. (Pneuma is the ancient Greek word for air in motion, breath, spirit, soul.)
