Remix Byrne and Eno

From Boing Boing:
David Byrne and Brian Eno's masterpiece My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts (1981) has been remastered, and two of the songs are now being distributed as multitracks under a Creative Commons license for your remixing pleasure. (Go here to play.) This is a snippet from the website:

"This is the first time complete and total access to original tracks with remix and sampling possibilities have been officially offered on line. In keeping with the spirit of the original album, Brian and David are offering for download all the multitracks on two of the songs. Through signing up to the user license, and in line with Creative Commons licenses, you are free to edit, remix, sample and mutilate these tracks however you like. Add them to your own song or create a new one. Visitors are welcome to post their mixes or songs that incorporate these audio files on the site for others to hear and rate."

These two guys just keep doing interesting stuff. I'm anxious to hear the Paul Simon/Brian Eno collaboration too.

Great iniciative. Daring producers should hurry and make this with all their classic albums.

Here, Karina's take on that matter, as well as other musical stuff...
