Reviews
And the glue that holds the images of Ron Fricke, the cameraman, together? Philip Glass’s music, of course…nothing could dilute the power of a score that shows its prolific…composer at full strength. Ostinato patterns, high-speed arpeggios, convulsive harmonic shifts; every trademark was here…
Richard Morrison, The Times,12/18/2012
Glass's score retains its power and, if anything, grows in majesty... his characteristic repeated chord patterns expanding rhythmically to create overarching, ever longer phrases.
Fiona Maddocks, The Guardian,8/21/2011
Glass was soon reaching a mass audience with his film scores. His first Koyaanisqatsi, directed by Godfrey Reggio, is still regarded as one of his best.
Christina Patterson, The Independant,5/22/2009
