9781878972316: Give My Regards To Eighth Street (Exact Change)

Morton Feldman (1926-1987) is among the most influential American composers of the twentieth century, a man whose music is known for its extreme quiet and delicate beauty (while Feldman himself was famously large and loud). Karlheinz Stockhausen once asked the composer what his "secret" was: "I don't push the sounds around," Feldman replied. His writings resemble his music in their quiet steadiness, their oscillations between assertion and doubt. They are also funny and illuminating, not only about his own music but about the entire New York School of painters, poets and composers that coalesced in the 1950s, including Feldman's friends Jackson Pollock, Philip Guston, Mark Rothko, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank O'Hara and John Cage. Give My Regards to Eighth Street is an authoritative collection of Feldman's writings, culled from published articles, program notes, LP liners, lectures, interviews and unpublished writings. It is one of those rare books from which anyone can draw inspiration, no matter what the vocation or discipline.

From the Publisher:

About Morton Feldman:

"Like the artists involved in the new American painting, he was pursuing a personal search for expression which could not be limited by any system... His music sets in motion a spiritual life which is rare in any period and especially so in ours."
— Frank O’Hara

"He talked wonderfully, sharply, outrageously, but that wasn’t quite his music. One thinks of the disparity of his large, strong presence and the delicate, hypersoft music, but in fact he too was, among other things, full of tenderness and the music is, among other things, as tough as nails."
— Christian Wolff

"There are people who say, ‘If music’s that easy to write, I could do it.’ Of course they could, but they don’t. I find Feldman’s own statement more affirmative. We were driving back from some place in New England where a concert had been given. He is a large man and falls asleep easily. Out of a sound sleep, he awoke to say, ‘Now that things are so simple, there’s so much to do.’ And then he went back to sleep."
— John Cage

"He was extremely nearsighted and wrote his music as if touching the notes with his eyes. Whenever I hear his music I think of its tactile quality, of his eyes ‘hearing’ the sounds."
— Toru Takemitsu
