Quote from: bhodges on March 12, 2008, 10:57:40 AMToday on a blog called david's waste of bandwidth, there's a link to FeldmanSays, a widget for Mac dashboards that gives you a different Feldman saying every time you start your computer.Seemed like an excellent reason to start a Morton Feldman thread. (I can't believe we didn't have one!)--Bruce
Quote from: James on April 05, 2008, 04:25:40 AMI cant stomach much of what I have heard, nothing is really happening in his music, it's rather boring, the aural equivalent of watching paint dry zzzzz...not much rhythmic momentum and too much repetition. Just nothing really that I find moving or compelling whatsoever. Rothko Chapel is only thing of his that I can take & would suggest if someone asked, but myself could easily live without.

Quote from: lukeottevanger on April 05, 2008, 12:42:08 PMThat says it all really - the final, universal, italicised Truth-According-To-James...and then, demurely parenthesised, the I-suppose-I-have-to 'IMO' qualification. It always looks a little ludicrous, this stance. You know full well that this music has the power to 'pay off', James, because you are talking to people for whom it has paid off and continues to do so. Perhaps the opinions and reactions of others figure very small in your assessment of composers, and of course, our own tastes are naturally the most important to us, but your repeated exalting of your own opinions as being implicitly more valuable, conclusive and 'accurate' than anyone else's just conspires to make you look severely self-centred. Not just on this thread, of course...

QuoteDo you know the solo piano piece Palais de Mari?
Quote from: uffeviking on April 15, 2008, 10:23:45 AMWhenever I feel like Feldman, I end up listening to my favourite: Rothko Chapel!
