An Extremely Violent Tribute To Philip Glass

Yesterday, Jan. 31 was Philip Glass' birthday. Last year, we celebrated with a "minimalist" version of the song "Happy Birthday." You can find a link to it here.

This year, I didn't feel like typing out those words over and over, or paying copyright dues to Jessica Hill.

A few years ago, this great American minimalist composer received this interesting (albeit extremely gory) tribute to his film Koyannisqatsi: Life Out of Balance. Made by I & S studios. Enjoy!
