Song Of The Day: Philip Glass - Koyaanisqatsi

Submitted by Druss on Tue, 2007-05-15 00:05

Today's song of the day is the title track from Philip Glass' seminal soundtrack for the movie Koyaanisqatsi. It is a wonderfully powerful song and like most great musical pieces, paints a vivid picture in my mind accompanied by a strong emotion en mi corazon. For moi, I usually feel an emotion of change and ... climactic anticipation. Additionally, due to the fact that I've been reading fantasy all day, this piece is currently invoking a similar feeling to when the protagonist finally reaches the cusp where he / she usually recognises his / her power and comes into his / her own. It's tough to put it into words I suppose, but the organs coupled with the unbelievably deep vocals impart such strength and mystery, that it almost feels unworldly.

Hmm, I just realised that this post will come across as being rather risqué, if read by a mind - not unlike mine - which is well acquainted with gutters. Seminal, climactic, powerful, strong, organs, comes, anticipation, coupled etc.
