Listen to this piece from Muhly's newest project I Drink the Air Before Me, "Storm Center", and try to imagine hearing it performed in a big dark opera house or symphony hall. Imagine being there and feeling the rising and falling pulses of the music. What kinds of feelings does this piece produce in you? Why do you thnk it is called "Storm Center"? Does the title fit? In what ways is this piece like the center of a storm?
