    Recorded at Looking Glass Studios, New York, New York.
    Includes liner notes by Tim Page.
    One of the superstars of avant-garde composition and a highly respected and influential master of minimalism, Philip Glass turned to composing for the cinema in 1982, with director Godfrey Reggio's lyrically gorgeous KOYAANISQATI, a surreal documentary of life in general (and up-close) on our planet. Glass's grand, pulsating orchestral music draws you in as surely as the sound of rain on the roof, or watching a waterfall.

    The Wire (1/99, p.60) - "...defined the terms of its own success, in attention grabbing symbiosis of film and score....The live performances...deliver energized music....adding half an hour of music previously omitted..."
