In 1976, Morton Feldman met Samuel Beckett in Berlin where they discussed their mutual disdain for traditional opera, and Beckett agreed to elaborate on some words he called "the theme of his life." The result was Neither, Feldman's meditation on self awareness colored by pungent, unsettling sonorities wed to passages of ethereal beauty. This is a work by a major American composer that has never had a full production in the U.S. (only concert performance).
The full opera is about 50 min in length.
