ABOUT THE COMPOSER
Robert Spalding Newcomb is an artist whom people consistently find difficult to categorize, especially in a music scene as diverse as the one in his hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan. He is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, computer programmer, theorist, writer, and poet who combines elements of numerous musical disciplines and cultural domains into a performance style that is truly a unique matrix of energies. Creative explorations focus on the study of musical and linguistic structure, complex systems, cognition, transcendent states, and improvisational performance.
In the 1980s, while living in New York City, Robert Newcomb studied hatha yoga extensively with the centenarian Sri Swami Buaji Maharaj (Swami Bua), and he is still an avid practitioner of yoga and other body-mind disciplines.
During that period, Leslie and Robert collaborated on the creation of a yoga instructional audiotape titled “Vinyasa Yoga Movement with Breath and Music,” which featured the composition “Measured Breath” as a backdrop for a floor sequence very similar to the one appearing on this DVD. The design of that piece was an intricate mapping of breath and movement to rhythmic and timbral musical elements. Its inclusion more than 20 years later as part of this volume brings the collaboration full circle.
