Product Description

2012 two CD remix project from the Avant-Garde composer. The idea for Rework came together during a conversation between Philip and his friend and new collaborator Beck. The pair recruited producer Hector Castillo 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixing it 21 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really like Philip Glass so was a little disappointed with this particular double CD. The idea of remixes is an excellent one but the tracks here are of varying quality. The second CD is much better than the first but the overall impression is of a project that has not really come off.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 27 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The reworking fails to maintain the spirit and quality of Glass, much less add something to it. The result is without subtlety and interest and misses an opportunity to speak of Glass' music with a different voice.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wrong remixers for the job. Missed Opportunity 21 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD
Awful indulgent slop of the worst kind, not one of the remixers seem to have caught the essence of Glass's works or taken us down some meaningful route. As for the mess that is Beck's contribution, I blame scientology. The Reich remixed CD is much much better and takes the listener through a postmodern experience. I just hope they don't start to do John Cage or Terry Riley in this way... It's odd, I only have to look at The Wire magazine for dozens of would be interesting collaborators that are reputable and would put their hearts into this, and not just phone in their responses...
