It looks to me as if he didn't do the original score for that movie, Micheal Reisman did, and what a film to pick too, I loathe Virginia Woolf.

All I know of him is that Triumph called him an "atonal ass" in "I keed"

Yes...you are correct...a friend of mine did a film music project on The Hours and Philip Glass. he did in fact do the music to it...he recycled some old material of his...Satyagraha (an opera I believe) and also Metamorphosis...I thought parts of it sounded like this piece on his Glassworks album called "Island" though. Philip Glass does a lot of film work...cool stuff..check out the Qatsi trilogy (hopefully i spelled it right)...oddly...he did not enjoy writing for film! Sad...he's very good at it!


Check out my website and listen to my music!

Philip Glass's music is absolutely integral to the QATSI trilogy of documentarys that compromise slow motion and time lapse photography. Predominantly shot by Ron Fricke. They are dialogue free and driven by some of the most incredible images and an equally apposite score. Music is art and so is film. They are so intrinsically linked here.

Koyaanisqatsi is the first in the series. Not to everyone's tastes, but members with a passing interest in art should check these out. Let me know what you think.
