I remember clearly how I, at the age of fifteen, was hit by the force of the movie Koyaanisqatsi by Godfrey Reggio. This movie is the first in the so called Qatsi trilogy: Koyaanisqatsi: Life out of balance (1983), Powaqqatsi: Life in transformation (1988) and Naqoyqatsi: Life as war (2002).

Koyaanisqatsi was also my first experience of the composer Philip Glass, since the music is playing a vital role in the movie. If you do not know this brilliant minimalist, please do something … start with his masterpiece Solo Piano from 1989. Visit www.philipglass.com for more information.
OK, that was a couple of links for you.
The music of Philip Glass means a lot to me. So five years ago I named a tune after him. It was recorded in 2004. Later it was recorded in an updated version and released on the album All You Can Eat in 2005. Click here to listen to the first version from 2004.
