The music in AUTONOMIC is drawn from a series of compositions that explore breath awareness, intention, and perception, with a particular interest in the human experiential process of musical information transmitted through sound. This music evokes the diverse soundscapes of the world around us, and is visually reminiscent of slow moving forms in nature. In collaboration with videographer James Reeves, the music is paired with visuals inspired by the slowly evolving, multi-layered movements of clouds.

Paul Kikuchi is a Seattle-based percussionist, composer, and sound artist whose work explores a wide range of styles-from chamber music to soundscape ecology-while also considering specificity of site and material, differences in awareness and intention, along with aspects of history, experience, and community.
