Koyaanisqatsi

 

 

 

 

 

*****************************************************

 

Posted here is the soundtrack of the film Koyaanisqatsi (also known as Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance), a 1982 film directed by Godfrey Reggio with music composed by Philip Glass.

In the Hopi language, the word Koyaanisqatsi means “unbalanced life”.

As noted in a Wikipedia entry, “the film consists primarily of slow motion and time-lapse footage of cities and many natural landscapes across the United States. The visual tone poem contains neither dialogue nor a vocalized narration: its tone is set by the juxtaposition of images and music.”
