Philip Glass

Highest Rated: 100% The Thin Blue Line (1988)

Lowest Rated: 8% The Reaping (2007)

Birthday: Jan 31, 1937

Birthplace: Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Celebrated avant-garde composer Philip Glass carved out a significant niche for himself with innovative and bold orchestrations that won him an international reputation and cult following as the most recognized practitioner of minimalism. "Rolling Stone" has called the creator of the ground-breaking operatic classic "Einstein on the Beach" (1976) the most important living composer, and he has effectively employed his hypnotic arpeggios, staggered pacing and measured chord movements to enhance the visual elements in films, both documentary and fiction.
