A Ritualistic interpretation of Philip Glass' seminal piano piece "Opening."

"Opening" is the opening movement of Philip Glass' 1982 release "Glassworks" - designed as "walkman friendly" to appeal to a wider audience.

This arrangement was crafted from a live "wild" piano performance, and after beat-mapping the performance to create a tempo map, the additional arrangement of synthesis, ebow, hammered dulcimer, gunshots, and time-based effects were added in post production.
