Tyshawn Sorey is known to many as a jazz percussionist, but not as a new music composer/musician. Here is a performance of Morton Feldman’s Durations and a composition dedicated to Harold Budd.
“Some years ago In the middle of the night, I had this really crazy dream of multiple groups performing Feldman’s graphic scores simultaneously. I wanted to experience the sound of a larger ensemble playing the entire series of Morton Feldman’s “Durations” simultaneously. I slept to this every night for nearly one year… I combined these five performances by the great Ensemble Avantgarde. That’s all that I will say about this one – but the SOUND of this is really the point, for me. I hope you enjoy.”
