Among his many accomplishments, Philip Glass is known as a prolific composer for film. Today’s archival interviews feature the composer discussing his relationship with filmmakers, and the process of scoring a movie. First up is an appearance on The Leonard Lopate Show from 2002 about Glass’s work on Koyaanisqatsi. Then we jump to an episode of New Sounds with John Schaefer from 1985, in which the composer talks about scoring Mishima.
