"Stillness, silence, contemplation. These are the characteristics of Rothko's paintings and of the chapel that was created for his work," writes Sarah Rothenberg in the CD liner notes. "If Jackson Pollock's art is marked by rhythmic energy, by action made visible, the paintings of Mark Rothko hold the opposite - colors seem to float 'as though they were breathed onto the canvas.' ... Tracing a trajectory of the avant-garde that spans a century, the music corresponds to the Chapel's environment of timeless reflection. The works of Americans John Cage and Morton Feldman, without text or program, interweave with the ruminative piano works of their spiritual predecessor from 19th century Paris, Erik Satie."

This album addresses a network of musical relationships and inspirations. It opens with Morton Feldman's Rothko Chapel, named for the Houston, Texas interfaith chapel built to house Mark Rothko's site-specific paintings. Feldman considered that his music lay "between categories, between time and space, between painting and music", and described the score as his "canvas". Amongst his most important influences were abstract painters, his friend Rothko prominent amongst them (Rothko, for his part, yearned to "raise painting to the level of music and poetry"). Feldman was also liberated by the freewheeling example of John Cage's work. "The main influence from Cage was a green light," Feldman said. "It was permission, the freedom to do what I wanted." Cage, that most relentless of 20th century experimentalists, didn't acknowledge what he called an "ABC model of 'influence'" but always had a special fondness for Satie, a musical inventor of good-humoured originality with whom he could identify. On a number of occasions Cage mounted a spirited defence for Satie, critical of the critics who assigned him a minor role in music history.
