Why See Philip Glass Ensemble?
Celebrate Phillip Glass' 80th Birthday
Widely held in high esteem as one of the most influential composers and musicians of the 20th century, Phillip Glass evolved a style that influenced the evolution of the moving picture and music. His minimalism spans over 20 operas and 10 symphonies, as well as a host of legendary films inlcluding The Truman Show, The Hours and Kundun. Celebrate the musical genius' 80th birthday with a special screening and live performance of Godfrey Reggio's KOYAANISQATSI.
Perhaps his most famous score to date, KOYAANISQATSI is a 1982 American experimental documentary film that explores the fracturing of the relationship between humanity and nature as the human race relies more heavily on a technological existence. The film is abstract, making its stunning point with music and image alone.
