Philip Glass is a modern classical composer who has been classified as a minimalist, but who prefers to think of himself as a composer of "music with repetitive structures". Glass has a large body of work ranging from compositions for solo instruments to full orchestra. He has composed music for several films.
The hypnotic nature of his music can place the listener into a trance-like state of mind. The music lends itself well to inducing dream states as well as possibly influencing dreams of a sleeper.
The music sample included today is accompanied by a lovely surrealistic video that is much like a dream.
