For more info:
Words & Music was written in 1961 for radio, commissioned by the Third Programme of the BBC. It was produced with the voices of Patrick Magee and Felix Felton. The music was composed initially by John Beckett and then for the official version by Morton Feldman. This production brings a visual adaptation which simultaneously feeds a radio broadcast in order to amplify the highly picturesque potential of its themes and the relationship between words and music.
