Frank Martin of Media Production Associates, who also engineered Goldstein's acclaimed recording of Feldman's Triadic Memories, remained behind the desk as Goldstein recorded For Bunita Marcus on a recently-acquired Steinway D at Brendle Recital Hall on the campus of Wake Forest University late last fall.
According to the fine guitarist Ernesto Diaz-Infante on the le son du arisli website, “This has been my favorite CD for the last few months. I listen to it before I go to sleep or in the morning or when I need to relax or on my iPod as I walk the hills and parks of San Francisco. It is comforting, meditative music – that sets the bar for me as far as this type of music goes. I’ve never quite heard anything that successfully suspends time like this… Solo piano notes ring with overtones. Tactile. Quiet. Soft. Slow. Ideally, listened to at a low level. If I close my eyes, a mosaic of patterns flow and unfold. If I had only one choice of music to take with me to a sensory deprivation tank, this would be it.”
This version of For Bunita Marcus includes an 8-page booklet with liner notes from noted Dallas-based musicologist Laurie Shulman and abstract expressionist artwork from the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth by the controversial Philip Guston, one of Morton Feldman’s long-time friends.
