It would almost seem like Helvacioglu's composition is able to reach into race memories that date back to man's earliest beginnings when fire meant the difference between life and death. Somehow he captures how emotionally important fire, and the light and heat it represents, has been to humans since whenever. The repeller of the dark, the revealer of the unseen, the dispeller of shadows, and the bringer of life saving warmth; fire has always been our first symbol of safety and security. Of course it can also burn the hand that feeds it, so care must be taken not to provoke it so that it dances beyond the confines of its nest lest it consume us. Our first lessons in power came from fire, how a careful stoking that accumulated energy was of far more use than a rapid expansion of power that burnt brightly but only for a short time and then was gone.
Listening to "Dance Of Fire" you can hear any of what I described above or none of it, and the same goes for any of the five pieces on Wounded Breath. It's all there waiting to be heard but you have to want to listen. This is not music for people who want to be spoon fed and told what they should feel and how they should respond; you have to be prepared to react to what you hear. However the rewards for that little effort are incredible as you'll be introduced music that will open you up to new experiences and allow you to explore worlds previously closed to you.
