For Morton Feldman

For Morton Feldman

Mixed media. Automated piano, wool, actor, pianist, monitors, pantographs and original text. Paris, 2017. 

A man seeks advice on the tomb of a dead composer. Taking his counsel, he leaves for Syria, imports an obscure cult and a deaf pianist. He’ll find solace and madness in sabotaging one of the pillars of our civilization : language.

Morton Feldman described his music as a “vibrating stasis”. The performance aims at making this as real as can be.

This is not a concert nor a lecture, it’s a sculpture, presented for 35 minutes.
