MP3 Sample: Sargasso ReMix
This collection of unlikely remixes is remarkable and varied: there are punchy, up-tempo techno grooves, trancy, haunting ambient tracks, collisions of morphing and fusing sounds, and strange stereo barrages.
From 1992 to 1996 Mark Applebaum composed The Janus Cycle, eleven solo, chamber, choral, and orchestral works for virtuoso musicians. The eleven works were performed and recorded. Then Applebaum hacked them to bits with his computer and painstakingly reassembled each one, making wild new pieces. The result are the Janus Remixes: bizarre and compelling modern musique concrete that turns the concert hall on its head.
