TIQ and Cyrille Aimee: “Lets Live Again”
Cyrille Aimée asked us to join her on one of her favorite Nancy Wilson tunes “Let’s Live Again.” We couldn’t resist the chance to swing hard with her on this classic tune.
Live version of the fourth movement of "Aeroelasticity: Harmonies Of Impermanence," composed by TIQ founder David Balakrishnan. "Flutter Point" is the term used by mathematicians to describe the point at which if there is any more turbulence a plane will crash. The instructions in the sheet music at the beginning say "play as fast as possible without falling apart", and towards the end, "now play faster!"
