Listen To The Album Of Philip Glass Remixes In Its Entirety

Beck, Dan Deacon, Pantha Du Prince and Cornelius, among others, offer a new perspective on the composer’s work

On 23rd October, “REWORK_Philip Glass Remixed” will be out, the collection of reconstructions of pieces by the American composer organised by Beck, who is also the executive producer of the project. The album has a marked electronic accent, whether through the languid nebulousness of Nosaj Thing, the elliptical colourfulness of Tyondai Braxton, or the intimate, sparkling techno of Pantha Du Prince. Beyond the electronica, there are also folk reinterpretations, such as Peter Broderick’s “ Islands”, or chamber pop ones, like Johann Johannsson’s piece. Others remain extremely faithful to the original compositions, like the piano performance of “ Opening” given by Cornelius. The album also includes Beck’s already known NYC 73-78, a piece in which the Californian brings together up to 20 Glass compositions as a distillation of the composer’s career as a whole.
