Editorial Reviews

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A modern take on Philip Glass November 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you like Philip Glass' music and are looking for new interpretations of his music, this CD is worth checking out. Unlike some other remixes out there, I think Beck et al have managed to keep the core elements of Glass' music while adding their artistic takes. I think the remixes work well and would recommend it for anyone interested in ambient music.

3.0 out of 5 stars Noble (and not so noble) failure May 9, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It is easy to see why Beck, the figure behind this reworking of some of Philip Glass' work, is both critically and popularly acclaimed. His own long piece (more than 20 minutes) is witty, appropriate, moving, creative, and sometimes surprising. It genuinely adds something new to Glass' already considerable achievement. Contrast that with the incoherent efforts of the other would-be's whom some ill-advised person (I hope without optimism it wasn't Beck) has invited to fill out the set, and one can see that different is not enough. Only Cornelius' effort is listenable, and that is largely a set of variations on an extremely well-known Glass work. Let the others do their own thing for people who appreciate them. They have no place here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Huh December 9, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well that was fun. Much more interesting than I would have imagined. A couple of listens start to resolve it so that you can really see the collaborator's input and style.
