Today I bought Candyman (I am a huge fan of Clive Barker). I have not watched the movie yet, but I saw in the interviews that Philip Glass wrote the music. Is not he an EM artist? Anyone heard this soundtrack?
I want to listen to it, but it is too late at night for me to put on a film like Candyman now, hehe. Scary movie Shocked

A kind of. Actual his music is classified as minimal music (if you are familiar with it). Now and then he is using electronics. I have seen the film Koyaanisqatsi: Life out of Balance for which he wrote the music.

I see. I am not too familiar with the genre "minimal music" although a lot of ambient EM can be considered minimal music. I look forward to hear it when I watch the movie.

Koyaanisqatsi was my first encounter to his music, now I have plenty of his CDs. I like his pure minimalistics works more thenthe newer ones.
Seeing the Koyaanisqatsi movie and listening to the music shows, that there would be no better way to enforce the powerof these pictures better then by having his music as score to glue the cuts together.

To me Koyaanisqatsi is the second best movie. Number one is 2001 for me (but skipping the monkey part).

I don't consider Philip Glass as an EM musician. His works are more concentrate on minimal and contemporary music. He uses to be more related with people like John Adams, Reich, Shankar etc... The use of electronic instruments is just a way of making it but not as a main task.

About Candyman soundtrack I have to say is a great cd. This release came out much later than the film (the film I believe is from early 90 and the soundtrack it was released 2 or 3 years ago). Actually in the cd are included the soudtrack of Candyman and Candyman II. Also by Glass.

I did not know Philip Glass did the music to Candyman! Will have to track this down. My favourite PG works are:
Passage (with Ravi Shankar)
Koyaanisqatsi (full version)
Heroes & Low Symphonies

There is sooo much music to discover from Glass. And if you check his complete works you will see he has much more stuff never released than released.
So, considering that he has quite a big discography means really nothing compared with his private catalogue. Shocked

I have seen Candyman, and I remember that the music was "haunting", it stuck with me some time after. Also, the first time I saw the movie, it really scared me...! Mad

I certainly rate it near the top too.

And I feel that Glass's opera Satyagraha is the best to come out of the second half of the 20th century even though I am not in general a big fan of minimalism. (Satyagraha is non-electronic however.)

He has done quite a lot OST recordings, I think Mishima is his best, but also The Hours, Dracula and Kundun.
His music becomes part of the film experience, but the real strength lies in the fact that the score looses no power when listened to with eyes closed. Smile
