'Who's Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue' is a short, condensed piece. There is no background, only the bright foreground music of primary colours divided up by loud percussive chords. "The zip (vertical stripe) acts as a divider, marks off intervals, and by regulation of its color intensity indicates stresses, as a species of visual music" (Harold Rosenberg - 'Barnett Newman'). Primary colours have always provided a challenge for painters. Barnett Newman faced this challenge with four paintings - Who's Afraid of Red Yellow and Blur I, II, III and IV. 'Who's Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue' was written for Ananda Sukarlan in 1993.
