Morton Feldman’s “Projection One” (1950), performed by Riana Anthony, Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music, Master of Music, Class of 2017. The piece explores categories of pizzicato, arco and arco-like ponticello, as well as harmonics. It was written on graph paper with the pitch range of the instrument indicated in boxes inside larger boxes, giving the work a quality of improvisation and allowing the performer freedom of pitch choices within these registral ranges.
