The music of Philip Glass has appeared everywhere from Errol Morris’ engrossing documentaries to films like The Hours to the Grand Theft Auto video game series. He’s scored feature films and written operas. So it only makes sense that an album of Philip Glass remixes would feature a group of artists as versatile and varied as the composer, now 75, and his works. REWORK_Philip Glass Remixed, which can now be heard in its entirety at NPR Music, features a wide range of artists offering their own interpretations of works from the minimalist icon, from Tyondai Braxton’s spiraling, trippy “Rubric” to Pantha Du Prince’s trance-inducing “Mad Rush Organ” to Beck’s sonic gradient “NYC: 73-78,” an attempt at encompassing as much of Glass’ career as possible.
REWORK_Philip Glass Remixed will be released on October 23. Scott Snibbe Studio, who designed the interactive app series to complement Björk’s Biophilia, has created an app for the Glass remixes as well. In the meantime, check out the full album or individual tracks over at NPR Music, and check out Amon Tobin’s contribution below.
