Coming Up for Air is a collection of new solo pieces for flute (piccolo, C flute (open-hole and closed-hole), alto, bass, Native American flute (high or mid), with or without electronics). These pieces, collected and performed by flautist Kathryn Williams, explore the creative possibilities that emerge when pieces of music are limited to a single breath (i.e., one inhale and one exhale - no circular breathing).

Selected pieces will receive written feedback followed by an audio or visual recording. There is also the possibility that pieces could be programmed in future performances and recordings.

The project is being developed through Kathryn's PhD research into areas of extreme restriction at the University of Huddersfield and mentored by YCAT Sounding Board.
