Glass will appear with the Qatsi Project for two three-night residencies – in Paris December 16-18, and in San Francisco in February. The Philip Glass Ensemble will perform Glass’ original scores for Godfrey Reggio’s trilogy of films – “Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance,” “Powaqqatsi: Life in Transformation,” and “Naqoyqatsi: Life as War.” The films will be shown in order, one per night.
Glass also has a number of solo piano performances lined up. February’s schedule includes concerts in Colorado, Oregon, British Columbia and Alberta.
In March, Glass will collaborate with New York-based composer/violinist/bandleader Daniel Bernard Roumain at Newark, N.J.’s Victoria Theatre.
Three full albums of Glass material surfaced in 2005, in addition to a disc featuring remixes of his work by drum and bass, house, techno and ambient producers. He also composed the soundtrack to “NeverWas,” a film by Joshua Michael Stern scheduled for release in 2006.
