Opening Reception 17 April 1982 8pm
An Evening with Morton Feldman:
Tapes of “Triadic Memories” for solo piano, and talk.
Mercer Union is pleased to present one of its first events in the Art/Music Series — Morton Feldman, who will play tapes of his music and “talk, talk, talk…”
This internationally recognized composer has been artistically associated with both musician like John Cage and many of the abstract expressionist painters in New York to whom Feldman was close in the 1950s.
His music is essentially unrhetorical, exploring the borders of sound and silence in an attempt to leave time and sound, in his own words, “undisturbed by the act of composition”.
Tickets at the door: $3.50
