Crippled Symmetry | Morton Feldman

Posted on August 25, 2014

In Morton Feldman’s music, silence plays a prominent role, thanks to the hushed volume and the interval between sounds.

In Crippled Symmetry Feldman builds on repetitive motifs (patterns), knotting and weaving his sounds the way Anatolian nomads make their carpets. It is from those carpets that Feldman borrowed the concept of imperfect or ‘crippled’ symmetry. Listening to Feldman’s work is a strange but overwhelming experience.

Helemaal desintegreren mocht de tijd tijdens het prachtige Crippled Symmetry van de Amerikaanse componist Morton Feldman, gebracht door Het Collectief met visuals van Klaas Verpoest. Breekbare motieven dreven anderhalf uur lang als eilandjes door de stilte en braken met elk lineair concept van tijd.
