Anatolian patterns and meditative sonic lines

Morton Feldman’s late, extended work, Crippled Symmetry, is a meditative, existential response to the urgencies and anxieties of modern life. Over about ninety minutes, the music quietly unfolds in rich and deceptive complexity. The piece was inspired by the intricate patterning of Anatolian rugs, Proust's transfiguring fog of memory, and by the perpetually evolving mobile-form sculptures of Alexander Calder.
