6 Degrees of Glockenspiel: Why Patterns? / Morton Feldman

Why Patterns?Why Patterns? (1978) / Morton Feldman as performed by California EAR Unit from Feldman: Rothko Chapel; Why Patterns? [New Albion, 1991]

I didn’t have to be ashamed to make a “lady,” so to speak, out of the glockenspiel. [Why Patterns?] is the only piece I know of that treats the glockenspiel as a very serious instrument. It was a big psychological decision – it wasn’t a choice of a novelty.
