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.
