‘The Hours’ hosts Glass

Composer created music to bridge film's three stories

Nonesuch Records and ASCAP threw a tea party for Philip Glass at the Regent BevWilshire Thursday during which Glass played a couple of short, really short, tunes. At the post-party screening of “The Hours,” for which he composed the score, at the Music Hall theater, Glass said that with three different segments and time periods, the pic “presented very special challenges for a composer and I was immediately drawn to it.”

“I chose not to do three different kinds of music because then (the picture) would spin out of control. The three stories are all bound together by one book, so I did music that became a bridge between the three. The music becomes a thread that stitches it all together.”
