Morton Feldman 2

Today, here in my second post about him, I want to start by confessing that I’m obsessing. Oh, I am. Feldman passed away in 1987. Giving this to us here today is a look at his artwork– someone’s art. Who else has art like this to match such a mystical ether? One of these painting is Jackson Pollack’s (1912-1956). What I’ll give us here mostly is art– the way these covers look. He is, of course, an experimental composer. Oh I just love this art; the idea each time of looking at musical history like this seems so interesting (or is it just me?). I don’t really write too much here today but put about ten of his art covers all here together as an array which I will assemble here. This past week I’ve listened more intently than usual to the music of Annea Lockwood (born 1939) and I’ll get around to writing about my theme project (I suppose finally) based on the idea of an experimental clothesline. These are jpgs from the web.

I just totally love this artwork.



About the Author:

After Jim Winters arrived as a jazz trombonist for years, he now has now finished his second year as a graduate student here at IMRC. He owns two hurdy gurdys, thus exploring drone-musical work and the aesthetic value of unfinished music. His concentration ranges from experimental-musical composition to photos, sometimes wondering about the colonization of 12-tone Western music vs. noise.

    Hi Jim–the painting at the top of the post, as well as several of the others below, is by Mark Rothko (1903-1970). Great stuff! –steve.

      My prose writing is always is intended to be oscillating, posing questions, or maybe testing an idea. Thank you for writing in. I think so much of you, Steve. Thanks sincerely and I will now look at this artist. This is suggestive of something, too, a point of intersect between a certain music and a certain kind of painting. I see this as more than multimedia but more towards each supporting the other. I want to explore that idea more. Sometimes I stand in the painter’s room in our building and just do nothing– just stand and gaze at the colors & shapes.
