The Raymond Scott estate turned over 50 years' worth of the composer's archives to three DJs -- The Bran Flakes, The Evolution Control Committee, and Go Home Productions. The archives contained "jazz, orchestral, electronic, experimental, studio chatter, never-heard rarities," which the DJs remixed into six tracks each, as well as a collaborative remix of Raymond Scott's "Powerhouse," perhaps his best known work (and much beloved of classic Warner Brothers' cartoons fans).
The Raymond Scott Rewired CD came out on Feb 18, and there's also an MP3 version.
Raymond Scott Rewired
Approximately 250 sample sources were used in the construction of these 19 tracks. Those samples have been edited, looped, flipped, and stretched; they were tweaked with equalization, pitch-shifted, compressed, and subjected to all manner of digital cosmetology. Scott fans will recognize some passages, but in countless cases, the source recordings have been rendered unrecognizable.
The package, designed by Piet Schreuders, features a cover illustration adapted from a 1950s work by legendary artist Jim Flora.
