This Saturday, December 8, 2:00 pm UNT faculty members Elizabeth McNutt, flute; Steven Harlos, piano; and Christopher Deane, percussion will perform Morton Feldman’s Why Patterns? at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, 3200 Darnell Street. Admission is free and the work is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Declaring Space: Mark Rothko, Barnett Newman, Lucio Fontana, Yves Klein.
Feldman, a personal friend of Rothko , creates an ethereal
music inspired particularly by Rothko: in Feldman’s own words, “the
degrees of stasis found in Rothko were perhaps the most significant
elements that I brought to my music from painting.”
