Philip Glass, one of America’s most esteemed composers, is the subject of “REWORK” Philip Glass remixed, a two-disc album/2xLP of remixed Philip Glass works. The album is coming your way on October 23 on The Kora Records in partnership with Orange Mountain Music and Ernest Jenning Record Co.
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.
We can not be more honored to be involved in this project.
