With masterful sound design by Russell Scoones also in mind, LungSong is a difficult piece to describe. I hesitate from calling it a site-specific performance as I am aware that this work is not tied to one site, but rather roams like the wind across myriad biomes. What I hope to convey is that this piece is an ‘instant’—a moment only made possible or observable through an extemporary interaction between the performers and audience: an anacrusis to breath as yet uncaught given our task ahead. That is, we are charged by LungSong in every sense of the word.
