Philip Glass: Solo Piano performance by Boram Choi + screening of Koyaanisqatsi.
Concert pianist Boram Choi will perform Philip Glass legendary solo Metamorphosis piano pieces from 1989
The performance will be followed by a screening of the Glass scoredKoyaanisqatsi (1983)
An unconventional work in every way, Godfrey Reggio’s Koyaanisqatsi was nevertheless a sensation.
This first work of The Qatsi Trilogy wordlessly surveys the rapidly changing environments of the Northern Hemisphere, in an astonishing collage created by the director, cinematographer Ron Fricke, and composer Philip Glass. It shuttles viewers from one jaw-dropping vision to the next, moving from images of untouched nature to others depicting human beings’ increasing dependence on technology Koyaanisqatsi’s heterodox methods (including hypnotic time-lapse photography) make it a look at our world from a truly unique angle.
