no, that was me at Borders discovering that CD -- except it's both "Low" AND parts of "Heroes" redone as symphony -- and gleefully using my Borders Rewards bucks on it.

I've liked Philip Glass since the Truman Show.
(And he has a great soundtrack for the Illusionist)

I've been listening since "Glassworks" was the bulk of the score for "Koyaanisqatsi."

"Bowie & Eno meet Glass: Heroes/Low Symphonies," it says on the spine.
"Music composed by Philip Glass from the music of David Bowie & Brian Eno," it says.
The American Composers Orchestra, The Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra.
Heroes, Abdulmajid, Sense of Doubt, Sons of the Silent Age, Neukoln (oh god how I love Neukoln, how many mixtapes did that go on as a bridge piece?), V2 Schneider. Subterraneans, Some Are, Warszawa.
HOW DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS BEFORE?

Aphex Twin did a remix where he mixed the Glass and Bowie versions of "Heroes" together. It's pretty amazingly awesome; I can upload it if you like.

Now, if only I could find, SOMEWHERE, a link to the French version of "Heroes." I would pay money for it, absolutely -- it isn't on iTunes that I can find. Maybe Amazon, haven't checked yet. PLEASE HELP.
