Morton Feldman: For Bunita Marcus

Joe Houston

Morton Feldman, For Bunita Marcus (1985)
Joe Houston, solo piano

Doors at 19:30. Concert starts at 20:30.

“I really don’t know how long a piece is going to be. . . . A lot of times the dictates of a piece have to do with purely personal and emotional reasons. The piece that I dedicated to Bunita Marcus, if I could make myself vulnerable, had to do with my mother’s death and the whole idea of someone lingering on. I just didn’t want the piece to die. So compositionally I used this to keep it alive, as a terminal patient, as long as possible." (Morton Feldman)

Joe Houston is a pianist who aims to curate unique and immersive programmes while involving himself as much as possible in the compositional process of new commissions. He believes music is fundamentally collaborative and is particularly interested in works that challenge the traditional composer-performer-listener triangle; new or unusual notation practices; and pieces that intensely explore the nature of sound itself.
