“Wild Air is the fifth collaboration in what has proven to be a remarkably fruitful relationship between South African born and now Irish-resident composer Kevin Volans and British choreographer Siobhan Davies…Volans’ music, which ranges from the harshly dissonant to the sweetly modal, serves to delineate the individual dancers’ ‘characters’ and also adds up to an eloquent large-scale form. Particularly effective are sudden silences mirroring sudden stops by the dancers, although the two do not necessarily occur simultaneously, shifting our focus from one to the other or back again.”
David Kettle, BBC Music Magazine,5/1/1999
