Morton Feldman was a pioneer figure in experimental music composition in the 20th century. Associated with the “New York School”—which includes Earle Brown, John Cage, and Christian Wolff among others—Feldman worked on free-floating rhythms, unfocused pitch shadings, and asymmetric patterns in the composition. Since there is not a single predictable element in his music, the audience is encouraged to pay attention and appreciate the sudden changes. Unlike other composers of his generation, Feldman did not leave creative improvisational authority to his performers; and instead fixed the performance of his music as much as possible. His work appeared in The Kitchen group exhibition Between Thought and Sound in 2007.
