    Steve Reich "2x5" Remix Winners Announced

    Back in October, when Steve Reich was celebrating his 74th birthday, Nonesuch Records and Indaba Music launched a search for collaborators to remix the third movement of the composer's piece 2x5, which Nonesuch had recently released on the same album as his Pulitzer Prize–winning piece Double Sextet. Remixers responded in force, offering over 200 unique interpretations of what Gramophone called "Reich's smartest, most sonically nourishing record for years." Steve Reich has now chosen a Grand Prize Winner and two Runners-Up. Fans have weighed in as well, picking their favorites, with the 10 highest vote-getters on Indaba earning Honorable Mentions.

    "All very different re-mixes," the composer says of the diverse array of submissions. "Good to hear the variety!"

    The Grand Prize winner receives $500 and a one-year free Platinum membership to Indaba Music. The two runners up receive free three-month Platinum memberships to Indaba. The 10 honorable mentions receive free three-month Pro memberships to Indaba. All of the winners receive autographed copies of the Double Sextet / 2x5 CD as well an autographed manuscript page from the Double Sextet score.

    And so, without further ado, here are the Grand Prize-winning remix, by Dominique Leone, and the remixes from two Runners-Up, Vakula and David Minnick:

    And the Honorable Mentions:

    To pick up a copy of Double Sextet / 2x5 with high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s of the complete album included at checkout, head to the Nonesuch Store, where it's now 33% off the suggested retail price as part of the Nonesuch Store's 3rd anniversary sale.

You can hear it here. It's a tune first written by Parker in 1995 and is one of six original compositions on the album, which also includes interpretations of Thelonious Monk’s “Ugly Beauty” and the standard “My Ideal." Parker says: “I am trying to create a sonic world for me to wander around in.” He will co-headline a US tour with Steve Gunn this Thursday.
