Philip Glass - Koyaanisqatsi

Experience ‘the quintessential environmental movie’ (The Guardian) on the Royal Festival Hall’s huge screen, with Philip Glass’s influential minimalist score played live.

In the late 1970s, filmmakers Godfrey Reggio and Ron Fricke travelled the United States creating and collecting film of deserts and dams, mines and mountains, clouds and cities, explosions and electricity pylons, planes and people. This they choreographed to a hypnotic score by Philip Glass, the loops, pulses and waves of sound matched to footage played forwards and backwards, in slow-motion and time-lapse.

The result is extraordinary, thought-provoking, poetic. This rare screening of the film with live music, performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra and the Philip Glass Ensemble, is a highlight of the Philharmonia’s Human / Nature series.

The Philip Glass Ensemble is the exclusive performer of its repertoire. Please note that Philip Glass will not be performing as part of this concert.
By special arrangement with Philip Glass and Dunvagen Music Publishers, Inc.
The Philip Glass Ensemble is managed worldwide by Jensen Artists.
