Philip Glass - Koyaanisqatsi : Life out of Balance
That new watchmen trailer made me pitch a tent. The opening music was from none other than Philip Glass, renowned super-influential composer and all-around cool guy. Here's the soundtrack to Koyaanisqatsi, his collaboration with director Godfrey Reggio. The film is a scintillating, psychotropic medley of image & sound. It explores humanity's downward spiral & just how out of touch we are with our surroundings. It really has to be seen to fully grasp what im getting at. The film's soundtrack is characterized by the involvement of synthezisers in classical compositions, including violins, brass instruments and haunting choruses. It's true auditory bliss.
