Program 559: Anti-Opera

KALW Broadcast Date: May 10, 2019 | Host: Randall Wong

On this Music From Other Minds, Randall Wong presents Morton Feldman‘s “anti-opera” Neither. Also on this program, Christian Wolff in Cambridge, a short work for 1963 for a capella choir. In this work the pitches are clearly defined, but the note length is indeterminate.

The text for Neither is as follows: “to and fro in shadow / from inner to outer shadow / from impenetrable self to impenetrable unself / by way of neither.”
