The question of form is key in the music of Earle Brown, one of the foremost American composers of the past fifty years. It was a certain amount of serendipity and a shared interest in the liberation of musical form which brought Brown to gether, circa 1951, with John Cage, Morto n Feldman, Christian Wolff, and David Tudor, in what was for a time called the New York School. … There was a close identification between these composers and painters at this time, and Feldman and Brown, especially, took vital inspiration from the philosophies and techniques of artists like, respectively, Rothko and Pollock. — Art Lange
