Glass spoke to students in Global Sounds, a Music Department course exploring non-Western forms of music. He shared insights about his longtime collaboration with legendary sitar master Ravi Shankar and the creation of Orion, a piece commissioned for the 2004 Olympics in Athens. The Orion project featured an international ensemble including Shankar (India), Wu Man (China), Foday Musa Suso (Gambia), and Uakti (Brazil).
