To honor Philip Glass’s birthday on January 31st, there are some interesting recordings of Philip Glass circulating throughout the internet. One recording is works by Glass played on accordion (by what capitalism was). U Can Unlearn Guitar interprets and “covers” album Glassworks, called Glassworked. And for those who love mash-ups, radio station WFMU is streaming what they call Glassbreaks. It’s a delicate blend of Hip Hop and Glass, featuring songs like Einstein on the Beast, a combination of Einstein on The Beach and The Beastie Boys.
