“ (from the Hopi language, powaq sorcerer + qatsi life) n., an entity; a way of life, that consumes the life forces of other beings in order to further its own life.
Philip Glass is simply amazing. He has created a musical language that is at once complex, possessed of pure simplicity. In being willing to journey into the vivid unknown, his composition reveals a sensitivity that is capable of touching those that can hear. His acoustic universe allows the listener the opportunity to deeply feel the vibration of sound performed; in cinema, remarkably, the audience can see the music. His music can speak directly with the soul in an utterance of repetition that is always changing. His ever-ascending circular sphere of sound is transporting, portending a direct, mainline transmission of extraordinary emotive power. Needless-to-say, I am a Glass junkie, addicted to this metamorphic high.”

I'm beginning here to resurrect some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real thought behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the wind. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
