On some level I think I’m built to be averse to scores and instrumental pieces because I’m so likely to be caught up in words. (Generally, this doesn’t apply to classical composers.) But, as I said, I’ve been going on a score binge recently. For, one I find scores a productive tool when you’re doing writing. With songs you tend to get distracted by the words, not so much when it’s just the music. And, true, I’ve said before that the score for The Hours is music to die by (truth) Glass is firmly in touch with the melancholy as well as the urge for creation at the film’s roots.
As the title of the first number goes – “The Poet Acts”.
Can you relate to my love for Glass’ work here? Do you find listening to scores inspirational?
