Philip Glass and “The Hours”

This was another favorite assignment: Philip Glass was in town to promote his work on the film The Hours, and the L.A. Times asked me to interview him and discuss his work in films. I found him a fascinating guy, a true artist but with a very savvy commercial sense. I loved his score for the film, ranking with Kundun as among his most effective music for films. Three years later, I talked to him briefly about his brief but oh-so-Philip-Glass theme for ABC’s Night Stalker.
