This work was inspired, by being the 'voice' of the composer Morton Feldman on Jim Gardener's 2008 Radio New Zealand Concert programme, about the composer. I was inspired by both his music and his ideas to write this piece, it is an experimental piece - it uses only 6 pitches and therefore the music is not in any key. This limit to the amount of pitches used in a composition, was a technique Feldman employed.
