Philip Glass presents selections from his soundtrack for the silent film Naqoyqatsi, the third installment in the Qatsi trilogy. The soundtrack, which features cellist Yo-Yo Ma, is the attempt by Glass and filmmaker Godfrey Reggio to create a balanced dialogue about the nature of technology: its singularity as a life philosophy and its benefits, as touted by the manufacturers of global technology. Also on the show, Ben Neill drops by the studio to talk about his latest release "Automotive" - expanding on some of the music he's done for VW commercials.
