For one of the prominent composers of the previous century – Morton Feldman (USA, 1926-1987) – music became a part of his life in his early years as he started learning the piano and at the same time wrote his first compositions at the age of twelve. In 1949 he met the composer John Cage and their artistic collaboration left a mark on American music of the 1950s. Cage encouraged Feldman to follow his own intuition and to trust it which led to Feldman developing unique, utterly intuitive
compositions. He was never constrained by the compositional systems and developed music from one moment into the next, from one sound to the next instead. The people of his circle were creative geniuses such as the composers Earle Brown and Christian Wolff, the painters Mark Rothko, Philip Guston, Franz Kline, Jackson Pollock and Robert Rauschenberg, and the pianist David Tudor. Due to the influence of these painters in particular Feldman started to look for his own unique expression in the
world of music. An expression which was more direct and physical than any other he had researched until then. His entire creative career was characterized by musical works that are long, open and quite undefined.
