  • About This Album

    The 1992 documentary Anima Mundi marks Glass's third collaboration with filmmaker Godfrey Reggio (Koyaanisqatsi). They revisit the environmental themes of their previous work and its hypnotic intertwining of music and image. The New York Times called the film "a spectacular sequence of cinematic portraits of wildlife" and praised Glass's "propulsive music."
