“What came to me as a revelation was the use of rhythm in developing an overall structure in music.”
For 18 months award-winning director Scott Hicks (Shine) followed my personal favourite and notable minimalist composer Philip Glass (my fav.: Glassworks, North Star, Koyaanisqatsi, Powaqqatsi, Einstein On TheBeach, Satyagraha, Songs From Liquid Days, Kundun, The Low Symphony and Songs, Poems for Solo Cello The Hours (Feature Film), and Notes on a Scandal – Feature Film) across three continents, creating a remarkable portrait: “Glass: A Portrait Of Philip In Twelve Parts" (TRAILER). A bit scattered and flat in beginning Scott Hicks’ uses Shine elements with the always down-to-Earth Glass, once seemed avant-garde but now absorbed into the mainstream.
