Sounds Modern presents: “More direct, more immediate, more physical:” music shaped by the art of Jackson Pollock. Jackson Pollock had a major influence on the music of the late 20th century.  Composer Earle Brown described Pollock’s work as one of  “the earliest, and still the predominant influences on my conceptual attitude;” Morton Feldman said it turned him toward “a sound world more direct, more immediate, more physical than anything that had existed heretofore.” Sounds Modern will celebrate Pollock’s work with a performance of music by Brown and Feldman from the early 1960’s that reflects the spirit and practice of Jackson Pollock. Horchow Auditorium, Dallas Museum of Art, 1717 North Harwood, Dallas, Texas 75201. Admission: included with $15 admission to DMA “Late Night” event, free to DMA members
