More of less ....(when its not less)

So... stirred by the music of Steve Reich , I set forth to get more of it
....and found out about Philip Glass.

I couldnt agree more with Wiki(or the man)
"His music is frequently described as minimalist, though he prefers the term theatre music"

Minimalist or not , its some real music.

"He is considered one of the most influential composers of the late-20th century and is widely acknowledged as a composer who has brought art music to the public (apart from precursors such as Kurt Weill and Leonard Bernstein), in creating an accessibility not previously recognised by the broader market."

Truly accessible , I may listen to Chopin or Bach . But, Glass's music - it talks to me.

..and whats more its all for your listening pleasure with this cool online tool (remember its NOT point and click but click and slide and I'm not sure it works with Firefox )
....been tripping on Intensity track there.

Check it out...and if you need some convincing , the mans scored the music for The Truman Show, The Hours , The Fog of War and Kundun.

Give that link a go.
