Philip Glass - Rework

The new double-CD compilation Rework: Philip Glass Remixed, put together by Glass and Beck, has a ton of indie stars remixing pieces from the experimental music legend. Dan Deacon, Tyondai Braxton, Memory Tapes, Cornelius, Pantha Du Prince, and many others contribute, and Beck himself has turned in the 21-minute “NYC: 73-78,” which stitches together and reworks a number of different Glass pieces. It’s a deeply pretty piece of music with a whole lot of wordless sighing from Beck, and you can stream it at NPR.

Rework: Philip Glass Remixed is out 10/23 on Orange Mountain/Ernest Jenning/The Kora.

  1. Memory Tapes, Beck, and Dan Deacon? I’m intrigued. Dan Deacon especially makes sense after his last album.
