    Laurie Anderson Begins Search for "Only an Expert" Remix Collaborators Through Indaba Music

    Laurie Anderson, Nonesuch Records, and Indaba Music, the leading destination for online music creation, have launched a search for collaborators to remix Anderson’s new song “Only an Expert,” from her upcoming June 22 Nonesuch release, Homeland.

    Sourcing a remix from Indaba Music’s worldwide community is in keeping with Anderson’s creative process for Homeland, as she developed many of the songs—including “Only an Expert”—in public and on the road, constantly improvising new elements over the course of numerous versions. Rather than hiring a producer to remix the song, Anderson will leave it to fans and fellow musicians on Indaba Music—one of whom will have their remix included on the iTunes edition of Homeland.

    Starting today and running through May 13, remixers can visit indabamusic.com/remixla to create their own version of “Only an Expert.” From May 13 through May 27, fans and a jury of experts, including Anderson and Homeland producer Lou Reed, will review the submissions. Then Indaba will announce the jury’s choices of Grand Prize Winner and two Runners-Up, as well as the public’s choice of ten Honorable Mentions.

    Listen to the Homeland album version of "Only an Expert" here:

    All jury selections will receive prizes. Specifically:

    Grand Prize (1)

    • $1,000
    • Remix included on digital version of Homeland
    • One year free Platinum membership to Indaba Music

    Runners-Up (2)

    • One year free Platinum membership to Indaba Music

    Honorable Mentions (10)

    • One year free Pro memberships to Indaba Music
    • Remix streamed on Anderson’s official site
    • Signed deluxe package: 12-inch “Only an Expert” single and Homeland CD

    For more information on this event and to start collaborating, visit indabamusic.com. For more information on the forthcoming album, head to nonesuch.com/albums/homeland. Stay tuned for a special album pre-order announcement, coming soon.
