'Breathing to Death' by Clay Gold is an edited improvisation with balls, bells, bowls, bow, cymbal, guitar and leslie speaker cabinet.

An improvised recording of percussive sounds was made and then played back, but not monitored, whilst an improvised overdub of de-tuned acoustic guitar was further applied.

The percussion track became the environment, the guitar seemed to represent human presence within that space. The percussion was left alone (but for the addition of reverb to emphasise the point) and the guitar adapted to its environment with effects and editing.
