Philip Glass: Geometry of Circles

According to Muppet Wiki, in 1979, Philip Glass wrote a series of short vocal pieces for Sesame Street. Above is the finished collaboration. Considering my fondness for post-modern American composers (most notably, Glass) and nostalgia for Sesame Street, this really gets my blood going.

BTW: I write this while half-watching a documentary (for the third time) about another fave, abstract-expressionist Mark Rothko. I’m feeling really geeked-out right now.
