Michael Stearns or Philip Glass?


In other words, do you prefer the soundtrack for Chronos or Koyaanisqatsi?

For me, Chronos all the way. Stearns is a genius.

I don't prefer one over the other; they both complement their films' respective visuals. Stearns' Chronos theme (heard at the beginning, and over the closing credits) is reminiscent of Vangelis' Blade Runner theme, while Glass reveals a Raymond Scott influence at times.
