That is part of the problem .we are also still here and thriving in spite of ourselves
Maybe, but helps a lot to be a Philip Glass fan, since GLASSWORKS pretty much sets up the style of sound heard here.Films like this often have no specific message per se, they show people something, confront if you like. From Wikipedia: The film also defines the word (Koyaanisqatsi) as "crazy life", "life in turmoil", "life disintegrating", and "a state of life that calls for another way of living".
But hey, even before seeing the film, forum readers might enjoy this DVD-A.
The original soundtrack was Dolby Surround, the DVD just a 5.1 modification without any remixing. Too much to hope the Bluray would have a genuine 5.1 remix. Anyone?The blu-ray of the movie is "DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1" .
Does anyone know if the soundtrack is the same on the movie? Anyway I'll add this to my list of movies to watch...
I WAS THERE!!! It was incredible.My experience with this soundtrack goes beyond just the movie.
I originally ran the film at the TLA Cinema on South Street in Philadelphia, but...
At the Irvine Auditorium at the University Of Pennsylvania...
I had the pleasure of being the projectionist at the running of the film as well. (I was a cinema tech for 25 years!)
This was not just your ordinary screening, however.
We played the film with no sound, slightly over the heads of Phillip Glass
and his ensemble while they played it live, onstage.
It was one of the most interesting concepts I've ever seen and the sound, of course, was one of "you had to be there"!
