At times it's pleasant, well-timbred (repetitive) music, and at others it plays durably on the same kind of obsessional harsh notes as "Einstein"!
The piece was designed to accompany a 'mime show' about one (not so) famous photographer. Tracks 1 and 3 are somewhat weaker ('songs'); but #2 and 4 will make you go out of your mind-whether you like them or not!
The recording is spotless as usual with the usual Philip Glass team. The 4-page booklet gives an overview of the initial staged performance. There seems to have been music for the whole length of the 3 acts: why do we have here but a (so short) selection? I can't wait to have 2 hours of "Photographer"!!
Walk out like someone suddenly born into color. Do it now." that's what Glass has done here.
If he can do it, it can be done, and maybe we are not all ingenious composers, but in whatever little corner we want to break free from, we can do it. I highly recommend this CD.
