REMIX PROJECT DUE OCTOBER 23 FEATURING BECK,
TYONDAI BRAXTON, AMON TOBIN AND MORE
Beck’s “NYC: 73-78,” a track from the forthcoming Philip Glass remix project REWORK_Philip Glass remixed, is premiering at NPR’s All Songs Considered blog. The album, a two-disc set/2xLP of remixed Philip Glass works, is due October 23 on Orange Mountain Music/Ernest Jenning Record Co./The Kora Records. REWORK is now available for pre-order here as well as via the iTunes store.
The idea for REWORK came together during a conversation between Philip and his friend and new collaborator Beck. The pair recruited producer Hector Castillo (David Bowie, Björk, Lou Reed) to help assemble a collection of remixes of Glass’ works by a list of critically acclaimed artists including Beck himself, Tyondai Braxton, Amon Tobin, Cornelius, Dan Deacon, Johann Johannsson, Nosaj Thing, Memory Tapes, Silver Alert, Pantha du Prince, My Great Ghost and Peter Broderick.
The remix project joins in the celebration of Glass’ 75th birthday season, which features performances and events across the globe encompassing every facet of the composer’s decades-long career as a preeminent American composer—opera, chamber music, orchestra music, dance, theatre works and more.
