Philip Glass & Lou Reed at Occupy Lincoln Center: An Artful View

Last week, composer Philip Glass and rock legend Lou Reed embraced the Occupy Wall Street movement. Initial video & audio clips capturing their appearances were shoddy at best. Now Jean Thevenin (who joined the protest at Lincoln Center Plaza) has given us a better view, producing a short, elegant film simply called Visible Shape. The accompanying music is “Protest” from Satyagraha, written by Philip Glass and performed by New York City Opera Orchestra.
