descriptions, reviews, &c.

"The complexity of Feldman's assemblage assures unfamiliarity and initial discomfort on the part of the listener. If we're not meant to hear continuity, or structure, or order, what can we hear? The answer depends, more than ever, on individual perception. There is movement, and stasis. Lines are drawn, thicken, thin out, and disappear. Phrases stretch like taffy. Shapes congeal, morph, and dissolve. Threads tangle and untangle. Sections are joined into blocks of fabric, then are cut into new blocks. Episodes, or fragments, appear, are abandoned, reappear. Notes breathe in and out, or push and pull like brush strokes. The sound creates its own form, its own metaphors, its own meaning. What are they? That's your job. How, and why, they got that way is another story."-Art Lange
