The Breathairean Ensemble is a collection of musicians who are committed to achieving physiological liberation. It is an all-vegetarian ensemble whose purpose is to act as a healing support for its members while expressing sounds and vibrations of discipline, beauty, love, and cleanliness. The band explores the production of non-stimulant music while its members strive for breathaireanism.
Music represents vibrations of immortality. The musicians of the Breathairean Ensemble strive to live the music. The music is the lifestyle and the lifestyle the music. In a time when creative music is reduced to the recapitulation of certain styles and idioms, the Breathairean Ensemble has developed a unique sound and spirit that is rarely seen today. The ensemble strives to keep the music and spirit of the Art Ensemble of Chicago and Sun Ra alive by picking up where they left off. The ensemble is deeply rooted in the blues and is dedicated to protecting the groove .
The Healing System
Physiological Liberation starts and ends with Arnold Ehret's Mucusless Diet Healing System. The book explains how all foods that are not fruits or green-leafy vegetables create filthiness, while offering a transitional system to liberate the body of this filth. The book contains the only cure for disease. It has cured and saved the lives of thousands of people who have been diagnosed as incurable by the so-called 'medical authorities'. One of the bands missions is to lovingly spread the knowledge of this diet and be an inspiration to all who desire physiological freedom.

Spira listens to all the music he can and believes that musical vibrations represent immortality.
Professor Spira has practiced the Mucusless Diet Healing System since the fall of 2002, and says that he could not have achieved his current level of peace, vitality and freedom without it. This former 280 pound football player currently weighs 160 pounds and completed a six month juice fast in July of 2005. He cites the Mucusless Diet Healing System as his inspiration for making music, and hopes that his music and mucusless lifestyle will inspire others to investigate the diet.

During his teens, Air became inspired by civil rights activist and vegetarian Dick Gregory and developed a serious attitude about health and diet. In the early 80's, he became an Ehretist and committed his life to practicing the Mucusless diet Healing System. Last year, Air completed an 8 1/2 month fast abstaining from solid foods while taking in only fruit juices. Before the conclusion of the fast, Air completed a solo percussion album entitled Brother Air.
Air also sets an example through his family life which revolves around the Mucusless Diet Healing System. His wife and two children all practice the diet and frequently hold family fasts. Air's family is also very active in the community and can be seen protesting at big events. Air's ultimate goal is to open a sanitarium to teach fasting, mucusless diet, and the importance of the lemon enema/colonic.

Continuing the Legacy
The Breathairean Ensemble recognizes the immortal legacy of music, and feels privileged to stand on the shoulders of the great musicians. Previous generations of artists have contributed to the evolution of the music. The Breathairean Ensemble strives to follow in the footsteps of John Coltrane, who is the exemplar of living the music. We know that the body is the one and only instrument and the cleaner it is the more freely the music will flow through it.
The Revolution Will Not Be Televised!
The Physiological Revolution is at hand. It is time to stop eating death and start eating life. The vanguard revolutionaries are those who can control what they put into their bodies. Death has mistakenly become natural, so if everyone is eating and dying then why don't we stop eating?
