Brimming Air by Kimia Koochakzadeh-Yazdi

Last year, when things were looking particularly bleak, composer Kimia Koochakzadeh-Yazdi and I started talking about a new piece that would stretch the composer-performer dynamic in new and fun ways. The result is present Brimming Air: a zany, kaleidoscopic romp that really explores this idea of “play”, whether it’s playing an instrument, playing with toys… or playing an instrument WITH toys. But it’s not all just fun and games. Brimming Air is absolutely a piece of its time: exploding aerosols, a nonsensical (yet weirdly relatable) narrative… all brilliantly composed, recorded, filmed, and edited by Koochakzadeh-Yazdi. Both Kimia and I are grateful for support received from the BC Arts Council, who have been instrumental keeping artists active and creative this past year.
