Over the last 3 decades, the Remix has become a central form in the world of electronic music and since their inaugural release in 2004 the Remix has become an essential element of the Nonclassical record.
Ranging from edgy hip-hop to sublime ambience this album brings together a selection of the most creative remixes available to the Nonclassical label, all of which are based on contemporary classical recordings, twisted, cut-up and re-worked into a range of remarkable genre-defying pieces of music.
There is one ‘house rule’ for Nonclassical remixers: "All the sounds used in every remix are to be created exclusively from the master recordings of the original". This strict policy imposed by Nonclassical on its remixers forces them to adopt a resourceful yet open-minded approach.
The result is a series of Nonclassical remixes that, though highly diverse, share an organic and natural sound, testament both to the talent of the remixers and also the sophistication of modern sound-processing technology. This constant invention and innovation from album to album, DJ-set to DJ-set will ensure The Art of Remix continues to break new ground whilst simultaneously maintaining Nonclassical's pioneering spirit.
