Contemporaries Philip Glass and Chuck Close often build their works with repeating modules, fragments of sound or form that vary slightly. With Glass's music, the layered melodies and rhythms yield a constantly changing soundscape that changes as the listener focuses on particular modules or on the whole sound panorama. With Close's art, the viewer is similarly prodded to examine the dynamic of part to whole. This CD features excerpts from Glass's Einstein on the Beach, Modern Love Waltz, The Saxophone Concerto, La Belle et la Bęte, Satyagraha, and Glassworks. (METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF MODERN ART)
