Baden-Baden

With his disconcertingly hypnotic, excitingly oscillating music, the American Morton Feldman has become a cult figure in recent years. Now, recordings of hitherto unpublished compositions for film are available for the first time on a cd. When we imagine Feldman, we think of pure, crystalline music. But we do not think of wide, soft sounds, that do describe paintings through their power, like you would expect in Hollywood productions. We do not know him like that. On this cd we have two pieces that give notice of the narrow liason with painting, (Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock). Being in the present with the sound, this time music with stories and history: this is how we experience this extraorbitant dramatic art by the fascinating recording by ensemble recherche.
