Vidna Obmana: In memory of Morton Feldman (2001)

When the Russian Electroshock label commissioned my participation for their compilation album of electro-acoustic music, I found it an excellent opportunity to musically express my fascination for the music of Morton Feldman. With pre-recorded acoustic piano textures, electric guitar, natural feedback and a series of processors, I composed this piece which in a way represents and respects Morton's music to a degree but simultaneously offers a glance at what my own personal music stands for. Like Morton's compositions this piece is constructed around a strict combination of notes and movements mapped out according to Bach's canon method. Repeating cycles of sound interact with each other at various moments throughout the composition so that the collection of loops continues to shift and change pace.
