My band director during my senior year of high school told us about a horn
player friend of his who could circular breathe. In fact, this horn
player did it so much it often irritated other members of the ensemble.
Our band director went on to tell us he died of an air bubble getting
stuck in his heart and popping (embellism? (sp?)). What that has to do
with circular breathing, I don't know!! But from his story, brass players
(at least horn players!) can circular breathe.

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to
see it, do the other trees make fun of it?
If an elephant falls, which suffers more: the elephant or the ground?
