American composer Morton Feldman (1926-1987) described the ways his music was influenced by antique Turkish carpets. The carpets have patterns that repeat, but with irregularity, in an imprecise, handmade manner. A similarly unsystematic repetition is a trademark of Feldman's music.
Feldman's "Triadic Memories", a 75 minute work for solo piano, is performed live by pianist Michael Century. A 2-channel video of time-manipulated images derived from antique Turkish carpets is projected during the performance, creating imprecise parallels between sound and image.
