Suddenly realize how much I dislike this:

and so I got this:

So far it seems much better but why hasn't this been recorded more?

Does anybody know any Feldman orchestrations? I imagine the different repetitions as played by different instruments,  a great way to explore timbre.

Maybe orchestrating Feldman's piano works will become a thing long after I'm dead and they become public domain.

I'm not sure how to put this and I think this came up in interviews with some of his students but there is something about the way Feldman uses the timbre of the instruments in his composition. It makes me wonder if this is a good idea. I know I don't know enough about music so say exactly but I do think it's a good question. I'm just wondering whether it goes against what Feldman was doing or not. I'm interested in an informed opinion.

It's true that Feldman's work is even fundamentally timbre oriented; I still think orchestrating the piano pieces would be very cool.
