Morton Feldman Piano by Philip Thomas – selected by Jack Cooper (Modern Nature)

I feel very fortunate and privileged to be in a position where I can talk about something I’ve been enjoying during the lockdown. I’m lucky that, so far, my friends and family remain safe and healthy and that lockdown has been a time of reflection and productivity

For many of us, our lives have changed drastically and that change is most apparent when it comes to time and our perception of it. 

Philip Thomas’ recordings of Morton Feldman’s piano compositions are both the perfect use of abundant time and an insight into time itself. The weight of each note can feel overwhelming and a whole universe resides in its decay. 

If you’re lucky enough to have an afternoon in the sun with no distractions, then spending that time inside Philip Thomas’ piano may shed some light on everything.

Modern Nature release their new mini-album Annual on June 5
