Day 81 | Heroes Symphony

The Buffalo Philharmonic is performing the music of Bowie tonight and I can’t make it! Inspired by that, I’m posting Philip Glass’s Symphony based on the music of Bowie’s “Heroes,” which followed a similar work based on Low. You might listen to about a minute of this and turn it off, or you might be amazed it exists and go out and buy or download the whole thing. The two symphonies are portrayed as collaborative works between Glass, Bowie and Brian Eno, though I am not sure if Bowie and Eno contributed beyond creating the source material (there are images here of Bowie in the studio with Glass, so he was at least present). In any case, that’s good enough for me to count this as part of the Bowie catalog. Album: Heroes Symphony
