Un affascinante approccio all'universo estetico e musicale di Morton Feldman è quello proposto dall'opera interattiva The Transmigration of Morton F., realizzata da Sjaron Minailo e Ruben van Leer fondendo musica, cinema, teatro, linguaggio dei videogiochi e funzionalità dei browser. Protagonista - anzi, avatar - tra i molti intercambiabili soggetti della narrazione è Joan La Barbara. Il lavoro è stato presentato a giugno all'Holland Festival, ed è disponibile sul web in http://mortonf.net.

In The Transmigration of Morton F. the worlds of opera, ritual and computer-gaming coalesce. Commissioned by the Holland Festival, director Sjaron Minailo and composer Anat Spiegel’s creation is a fully digital music theatre performance to be experienced from June 20 on www.mortonf.net. The legendary vocal artist Joan La Barbara performs the protagonist as herself: while visiting Amsterdam she finds herself caught up in a game of cat and mouse with a mysterious character whom she believes to be the reincarnation of iconic composer Morton Feldman with whom she has worked with in the past. As La Barbara’s surreal dreamworld unravels, the viewers are invited to travel the infinite paths of their own choosing through Spiegel’s and Feldman’s compositions.
