staggered breathing


The technique of breathing in wind instruments of musical ensembles to create the effect of a continuous sound with no breaks for performers to breathe. The effect is created by each performer in a section (i.e. flute, clarinet, trumpet, etc.) taking a breath at different times (or staggered) so the others in the section continue to sound long notespassages, and/or sections.
