cikada feldman trio

Anne Karine Hauge – flute

Bjørn Rabben – percussion

Kenneth Karlsson – piano

The current members of Cikada Feldman Trio first performed Crippled Symmetry at Arcus Temporum XI, Pannonhalma art festival in 2014.

Kenneth Karlsson describes the piece thus: 

Feldman has been a great inspiration for improvisational music, especially with Crippled Symmetry which is considered a bible or textbook of improvisation. He juxtaposes various musical patterns, inspired by patterns in Persian rugs – a big passion of his.

The trio also has pieces by composer Klaus Lang on their repertoire:

Why Patterns? (1978) 35’

For Philip Guston (1984) 240’

“My whole generation was hung up on the 20-25-minute piece. It was our clock. We all got to know it, and how to handle it. As soon as you leave the 20-25-minute piece behind, in a one-movement work, different problems arise. Up to one hour you think about the form, but after an hour and a half its scale. Form is easy – just the division of things into parts. But scale is another matter. You have to have control of the piece – it requires a heightened kind of concentration. Before, my pieces were like objects; now, they’re like involving things.” - Morton Feldman
