Presentation Title

Forgetting Music: Duration, Space, and Remembrance in Morton Feldman’s Late Music

Location

Meyer Auditorium

Abstract

With pieces of music at 6 hours in length, Morton Feldman’s late music explores duration, memory, and remembrance. Those who listen to Feldman’s music are presented with a musical space where listeners experience the decontextualization of time. I will explore how the dedicatory titling of his late pieces gives way to thinking of them as pieces of absence, memory, and mourning.
