Morton Feldman, Louis Goldstein : For Bunita Marcus (Nuscope, 2010)
This has been my favorite CD for the last few months. I listen to it before I go to sleep or in the morning or when I need to relax or on my Ipod as I walk the hills and parks of San Francisco. It is comforting, meditative music – that sets the bar for me as far as this type of music goes.
I've never quite heard anything that successfully suspends time like this... Solo piano notes ring with overtones. Tactile. Quiet. Soft. Slow. Ideally, listened to at a low level. If I close my eyes, a mosaic of patterns flow and unfold. If I had only one choice of music to take with me to a sensory deprivation tank, this would be it.
