Austin New Music Co-op: Morton Feldman’s “Crippled Symmetry.”A major composer of “indeterminate music,” like his cohort John Cage, Morton Feldman pioneered a unique style of composition that slowly and quietly evolves and unfolds over long periods of time. Rothman took the rectangular fields of light and color of painter Mark Rothko as the inspiration for “Crippled Symmetry” a 90-minute trio for flute, piano and percussion. Austin New Music Co-op members Sarah Dutcher, Nick Hennies and Francois Minaux (flutes) will play the rarely performed piece, a vast, seemingly infinite sound world comprised of dozens of asymmetric recurring patterns that coalesce into a floating, cloud-like whole. 8 p.m. Saturday. St. David’s Episcopal Church, 301 E. Eighth St. $12 ($15 at the door). newmusic.coop.
