I love Phillip Glass

the pieces he composed for Koyanniskatsi and Anima Mundi are chilling to say the least

I saw his opera Appomattox in San Francisco last year and thought it was very good. It was such a weird concept, a Civil War-themed opera, but it turned out to be pretty interesting. The music was easily the best part - very nuanced.

I love Philip Glass!

His music is often used in runway soundtracks ie. Marc Jacobs Fall 2006 - the entire soundtrack was "Heroes".

I think Philip Glass in incredible.

His work for The Hours is magnificent..."Morning Passages" is one of the most stirring songs I've ever heard.

I also love "Heroes" (the Marc Jacobs FW 06 song). It evokes everyday heroism so poetically. It's really just a stunning song.

Here is Marc Jacobs FW 06 (my favorite Marc show, and part of the reason I love it so much is the "Heroes" soundtrack!)

^^I've read that his work is considered minimal because his pieces were generally repetitive and spare, but from what I understand, Glass rejects this label.

Marc Jacobs is definitely a fan, he's used "Company" - Mvt. II at the F/W 11.12 show for Vuitton and The Photographer: A Gentleman's Honor for Vuitton F/W 12.13, I know Lee McQueen counted himself as one of his admirers also.

I'm also a huge fan, I've got a couple of his albums on my iPhone 4S... I'm sure they're my most listened to out of everything else and it's time his thread was revived again.

Also, according to wikipedia;-
Quote:
Alexander McQueen's Fall/ Winter 2007 Menswear fashion show used a mash up of Bowie's "Heroes" with Glass' "Heroes."
