Circular Breathing
Circular Breathing
- music / physiology -

"Circular breathing" is a musical technique that relies on blowing out through the mouth while simultaneously inhaling through the nose. Air stored in the musician's cheeks makes up for the break in airflow while breathing in.

Circular breathing is essential for many traditional instruments, such as the Australian didgeridoo, but is still a useful technique with other contemporary instruments like saxophones or clarinets.
