Metamorphosis No. 2 by Philip Glass. Performed by me (Sally Whitwell), video by New United Artists.
I’ll be playing this piece in a concert at the Art Gallery of New South Wales early Sunday afternoon. It rather appeals to me to play Glass’s works in art gallery spaces, when I think about the kinds of spaces in which he performed his music when he was just starting out… all those tales of the artsy crowds lying on the floor in Soho lofts, smoking joints and blissing out to the oscillating quavers of Tetris rain (yes, that’s why my tumblog is called what it’s called!).
