Does anyone know what the background music to this clip is? My mind says Philip Glass but I can't bring the piece to mind, am I right?

Hmmm, can't think what it is but I'm fairly sure it's Glass. And I want a copy

It's from Philip Glass' soundtrack to the film The Hours, I'm not sure which individual piece it is, but I'm 99% sure that's where that piece of music is from.

It sounds like a string version of Philip Glass - metamorphosis 1 or two. More 1 than 2.

But I'm not so sure. It might be the Hours. I'll keep researching.


EDIT: Stephen got there first lol

It sounds a lot like "metamorphosis 2" by Philip Glass, but the SLOTMD video has strings and piano whereas the copy I heard was a piano solo...

There's some good choices of music on SLOTMD - Ba-Ba by Sigur Ros is playing in the background when a lady is talking about her child being `the centre of her universe' - It captures that feeling of wonder, astonishment and everything being new again, I think.

Edit: had a look on iTunes and it's track 6 on The Hours "I'm going to make a cake", like Saturn sez. ... that could be a game?

*adds The Hours to CD wishlist*

Thank you all for the sleuthy thoughts! Also, nice to know there are a few people here who appreciate the wonder that is Mr Glass

I'm a bit late, but yes it's from the Hours. If I were you I'd get the DVD not just the CD. Great film, V. Woolf is a heroine of mine - fellow writer, fellow relationships with women, fellow manic depressive, fellow birthday, fellow suicide (?maybe).

But the film is rather sad... Not good if you are suicidal.

Book is good too, but on this rare occasion, I prefer the film!
