A Really Brief History of the Universe

Our house-favorite and old acquaintance Mike Hightower composed this music and edited NASA footage for this short. It's beautiful and strangely calming.

It is pretty neat. Mike really seems to be channeling Phillip Glass with this one. Perhaps intentionally.

Yeah, it reminded me of Glass too. Looking at Youtube, Mike actually notes: "I say original score, but let's face it--you can tell I dig Philip Glass. Though, that worked for John Adams, so maybe I shouldn't complain."

He's being a bit modest- it's good stuff on its own, even though, yes, it's evocative of Glass.
