Confirmation Of Suspicions

Back when I watched Interstellar, I was quite enamored of the sparse yet fully orchestrated soundtrack by Hans Zimmer.  However, I couldn't quite get the feeling out of my head that I'd heard it or something like it somewhere before.  Tonight, I stumbled upon this...

...and yup, that's what I was thinking.  The music for Interstellar clearly isn't the same as instrumentation by Philip Glass, but it surely did punch that particular button for me.  I mean, here's the music from the docking scene, called "No Time For Caution"...

...and here's the ending of Koyaanisqatsi, the scene that everybody's seen at least once...

I do hope Zimmer bought Glass a nice dinner first.

(no, this post wasn't an excuse to put music from Interstellar on here.  not at all. why would you think that?)

1 I see what you mean. (Hear. Whichever.) It's not a ripoff but it's certainly a spiritual sibling if not a direct homage. It's... Glassian, for lack of a better descriptor.
