It’s the birth-week of legendary innovator in electronic music, the pioneer Raymond Scott, His birth-week 106 years ago anyway…
So it seems a good time to mention the first Raymond Scott remix album was commissioned by Ergo Phizmiz back in 2009 for Chinstrap music Cyclic Bits:The Raymond Scott Variations
It’s 16 of Raymond’s best Bits remixed by 16 experimental artists. Listen to the Automated Acoustics remix of “Lullaby”.
“Cyclic Bits” is the first remix album of the music of remarkable composer and inventor Raymond Scott.
This album is a series of reinventions of the work of a true musical maverick, remixed by a host of today’s most inventive musical mavericks. The diversity of the release reflects the profound influence Scott’s work has had on composers working across the board of styles and approaches.
Originally created as a special for Ergo Phizmiz’s Phuj Phactory on WFMU, a projected release never happened.
This, at last, is it.
