Thoroughly Modern Moments

The Portland Art Museum is partnering with a number of other organizations during the months of the Mark Rothko Exhibition. Tonight Third Angle Ensemble performed pieces under the umbrella of Rothko Chapel. In addition to music by John Cage, Morton Feldman and Christian Wolff, voice recordings of a conversation between John Cage and Morton Feldman were presented along with slides of photos of both of them as well as Christian Wolff. The music was sublime. Modern and sublime.

Seating prior to the audience arrival...
Next Stop, Nirvana

and after the performance the raindrops on the sunroof of the Mini Cooper became quite abstract.
