Philip Glass

Philip Morris Glass (born January 31, 1937) is an American composer. He is considered one of the most influential music makers of the late 20th century. His music is also often controversially described as minimal music. Glass is a prolific composer: he has written works for the musical group which he founded, the Philip Glass Ensemble (with which he still performs on keyboards), as well as operas, musical theatre works, ten symphonies, eleven concertos, solo works, chamber music including string quartets and instrumental sonatas, and film scores. Three of his film scores have been nominated for Academy Awards. [Wikipedia]

Here are some of his compositions:

Philip Glass - The Secret Agent Ending:

Pendulum Waves with Philip Glass (The Secret Agent Ending):

Philip Glass - Orion -07 Brazil:

Philip Glass - Orion -09 India:

Philip Glass - Orion - 10 Greece:

Perhaps "The Secret Agent Ending" and "Philip Glass - Orion - 07 Brazil" are the most impressive ones listed above. You can also listen to the whole album of "Orion", by visiting its Youtube page.
