A new Errol Morris/Philip Glass collaboration of sorts. The two artists worked on a new film by/for IBM called "IBM Centennial Film: They Were There – People who changed the way the works."
While this is unlike their last collaborations much of the style of the two is at the fore. Largely a film touting IBM's across the board accomplishments which are numerous, for this Glass composed about 30 minutes of new music. As you recall Glass has composed a couple short commercial spots for the company in the past couple of years.
This score was composed and recorded very recently and you can hear some recent ideas in the score including at the two minute mark you can hear the rhythmic idea from the last movement of the second violin concerto. It's generally light music and plays well underscoring the image of IBM as a company.
