We are honoured that Air-Edel has selected Breathe Arts Health Research to be their chosen charity, to receive proceeds from their newly released duo of compilation albums!
Featuring music from Air-Edel’s esteemed, worldwide group of composers and artists, the albums aptly entitled Fresh Air… Breathe In and Fresh Air… Breathe Out, were created carrying messages of hope, love and compassion, in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The albums also served as a way for the Air-Edel team and their community to collaborate on a creative outlet, something that we love here at Breathe!
Chantelle Woodnutt, Air-Edel Composer Agent and Label Manager said:
“Our industry is one built on collaboration, whether it’s between us and our clients, composers and directors, or simply between composers and musicians. The impact of social distancing has been profound for us all and we wanted to find a way to stay together during this time – happily, the response from our incredibly talented roster was so overwhelming, we had to release two albums! We chose to sub-title them ‘Breathe In’ and ‘Breathe Out’ as we wanted it to be cyclical, with no clear first and second album, and of course, the name tied in perfectly with our charity partner Breathe Arts Health Research.”
Music is at the heart of our work – we see first-hand the calming and stress-relieving benefits of music on patients and NHS staff year-round. Yvonne Farquharson, our Founder & Managing Director said:
“At these surreal times, music is more important than ever, as it helps us to connect both to ourselves and others. We feel privileged to partner with the wonderful Air-Edel, to spread a message of hope and compassion far and wide during such difficult times.”
The twenty five tracks range in style and instrumentation and consist of both pre-existing, unreleased and new works composed for these special albums, through Besant Hall Records. They will be available across all digital platforms, with proceeds from album sales, downloads and streams benefiting Breathe. A BIG Breathe thank you from us to Air-Edel!
