Philip Glass: The Hours

American composer Philip Glass (31 January 1937-), known for his minimalism and “repetitive structures” in music, is 85 years old today and I am taking this opportunity to share one of his greatest work – a film score to Stephen Daldry’s film The Hours [2002].

    1. Definitely! I love minimalist composers, such as Satie, Einaudi and Nyman also to some extent. So much beauty in simplicity and power in repetition! I think our brains love repetitions because these are also the sounds found in nature (insects, birds, rain, etc.) and maybe that’s why scores such as these have such a hypnotic and addictive effect.
