Programme Note
Philip Glass Another Look at Harmony-Part IV (1975)
"Another Look at Harmony" is a project started in 1975. The approach has been to link directly rhythmic and harmonic structure. In doing so, easily audible root movement (chords or "changes") was chosen in order that the clarity of their relationship could easily be heard. Here, as in earlier periods of Western music, melodic material is, for the most part, a function or result of the harmony. However, it is clear that some of the priorities of Western music (harmony/melody first, then rhythm) have been reversed.
