A mini-post for faithful readers: Momma don't 'low no muddy skirts 'round here



Morton Feldman (1926-1987), American composer
One exchange from a 1967 interview with Morton Feldman, newly translated from the French and available through a link on Norman Lebrecht's blog:


JYB: What do you think about composers who close themselves off in a technique, in a system?

MF: That’s like those guys who are forty years old who still live in their mother’s skirts.



My tribute: 

 A haiku in memoriam Morton Feldman

Who are they? Just watch
For the ones who hike up skirts
To cross mud puddles.
