GlassPages-Philip Glass on the Web are an unofficial collection of information about Philip Glass, an american composer born in 1937 whose music has been classified as minimalist music, even if he dislikes this term. His music is based on the extended repetition of brief, elegant melodic fragments that weave in and out of an aural tapestry. The music of Philip Glass is the music of our times, in our times.

Most pages in the World Wide Web are in permanent construction. This is not the case of GlassPages, which are yet constructed. However GlassPages are from times to times updated in order to enhance their informative objectives.
GlassPages used to have two servers, a main one located in Barcelona and a mirror one located in Paderborn. Currently, these servers are not used because the site can be found under www.glasspages.org.
NavigatingGlassPages give importance to the contents. This is why GlassPages have been designed in order to be hyghly readable: a black text on a white background is still the best and easiest way to read (isn't it?). However, due to the multimedia possibilities of the WWW, GlassPages have a nice look, which is pretty, coherent and simple to understand.
GlassPages features nice graphics and small icons in order to help your reading and navigation. We tried, however, not to include too many big pictures in the pages, in order to allow a faster downloading. In most cases, pictures can be seen in full size clicking on them.
All the information in GlassPages is accessible through the main index. From it you will discover pages with information that can also have other menus. From any page you can go back to this index via the clickable "GlassPages" header. You can also go back one level clicking the back sign () button on the footers. External links (ie. links that point to pages out of our site) are marked with the remote sign (). Since we cannot guarantee the correctness of these links, we request your feedback in order to maintain them. In general, you can send us mail by pressing the mail sign (). This information page is always available pressing the closeup sign (). All these icons are included on the footers of each page.
New items are highlighted using the new sign ( ).
Our pages are not supposed to be read with any particular browser: even if a graphical browser is recomended, GlassPages can be read with a text based browser. The times where documents created with one program could not be read by others should be fast forgiven. This is why our site is not "XXX enhanced".
