Getting into Feldman

I went to see Monodramas on Friday night. My friend Duckmandu came to town and scored free tickets. The director took 3 one person/one act operas and beautifully pieced them together. The first two were written by John Zorn and Arnold Shoenberg respectively. The third one was written by someone I’d never heard of – Morton Feldman.
A man who looked like a clownish version of Einstein (in a good way) sat in front of me. I couldn’t hear what he was saying after Feldman’s opera was finished but Duck told me that he was complaining that nothing good ever came from Feldman, railing and railing on about how much he hated the composer.
I like an artist who brings this much hate to the listener. So now, I’ve been listening to more Feldman.
Duck just sent me this interview Feldman did with Iannis Xenakis:

It’s a good interview.
I also like Marty Feldman.
