Philip Glass

Philip Glass

Philip Glass, composed, conducted and played music to Godfrey Reggio's films.
His broad use of sounds, moods and instruments bought him to the attention of the film world.

Nice web site, but just a minor correction. You say "Philip Glass, composed, conducted and played music to Godfrey Reggio's films", but according to the sleeve notes of the original 1983 CD release of the Koyaanisqatsi soundtrack, and the 1989 release of Powaaqqatsi, both were conducted by Michael Riesman. The names of every member of the entire orchestra (or "ensemble) are also listed for Koyaanisqatsi, but Philip Glass isn't credited with playing any instrument. I don't have Naqoyqatsi so I can't check that, but it looks like he's "just" the composer for the first two. (Well, Glass is a non-conductor after all... :-)
