The Hours

Twiddling to music. I was listening to The hours by Philip Glass and this was the result.



Think I'd better stick to Haydn!

If that's the result, I'd like you to listen to Philip Glass more often, Bill. smile Try his another soundtrack, say to teh movie Kundun or Koyaanisqatsi. smile

Haydn and Glass are not mutually exclusive. Quite opposite. Each of them is a thread in teh fabric called musical culture. But you are welcome to stick to whatever you like, of course. smile
Bill Phillips: I like Koyaanisqatsi and am very fond of his violin concerto. Glass is one of those composers who you hear and say...i like that, what is it? Oh it's Philip Glass grin

Phil's got a lot to answer for!

It ain't bad, Bill.

Actually...its darn good.
Bill Phillips: I was so busy listening to the music I didn't line the layers up properly!

Cripes! You've got ole VZ dropping names all over the place...
Bill Phillips: I am impressed with anyone who can spell Koyaanisqatsi...i copied and pasted it from his comment
It's a beautiful twiddle!!! I love it!
Bill Phillips: Thank you Elizabeth. It is a picture I took some time ago and decided to have a twiddle with smile

I like th music while looking at you wintery-misty trescape - it has snown last night -sadly, only on your picture!
Bill Phillips: Wet and windy here but the lack of snow means we can get around with Santa's sleigh this year. Last year we had to cancel several nights because of the weather

A little bit enchanted and very mysterious. Hear the hours some more.
Bill Phillips: Thank goodness i don't like Shostakovich.....
Sorry, Bill, I am finding this, and the music, oppressive and threatening. I have been back several times, but it makes no difference to the impression it gives me.
Perhaps if it was lightened up a bit, or a lot, it wouldn't have the same effect on me.
I'm sure it is really a brilliant piece of work, since 8 other people say so.
Bill Phillips: I like Philip Glass but i can understand why people wouldn't Ange isn't very keen.

Quite impressive actually: I can see what he has done to your brain

I am listening to Arthur Rubinstein playing Chopin as I write this
Bill Phillips: and the latest score is Rubenstein 2 Chopin 1 as we go into time added for stoppages

Philip Glass is an acquired taste; I have his Low Symphony and possibly something else - the Piano? You have to be in the right mood. You obviously were to produce such a starling image. Tick, v.g.
Bill Phillips: The film music for the Piano was by Michael Nyman. Glass has written a fair bit of film music I think but I usually hear it and think...i like that and then find out it is him and then forget the title!

Art Bill, the hours are rushing past.
Bill Phillips: The years are rushing past John!
Ah, Philip Glass--fine music--one of my favorites. This image looks like an etching...
Bill Phillips: He is very interesting and some of his music is quite compelling
A very impressive presentation, Bill. I'm quite partial to a Glass or two.
Bill Phillips: A nice single malt for example?
I like some of the music I've heard by Glass but there is quite a lot I haven't. This is more than one image isn't it and I wonder if you were influenced by the slightly sonorous opening tones.
Bill Phillips: Actually it is only one image. more than one layer but more than that you will have to work out for yourself. Philip Glass's music either totally enthrals or irritates the hell out of you
